FUNDACIÓ FERROCAIB AND ATM-MILANO COLLABORATE TO RESTORE THE RAILCAR WUMAG 510

Recently Foundation FERROCAIB has visited the headquarters of the ATM-Milano to sign a cooperation protocol with the public company of Milano. The ancient Milanese trams use the same electrical equipment as Wumag 510 railcar. Therefore ATM Milano has sold to FERROCAIB some elements necessary for restore its electrical system and also some important documentation.

This railcar was built by “Wumag und Maschinenbau” in 1920 (Germany). Some of them were delivered to Portugal by Germany under the program for war reparations in order to compensate the damage during the First World War. This rolling stock never ran in Portugal, because the line was never built. In 1942 the Company of Trams and Railways of Valencia (CTFV) bought it in the 40s. Then It was transferred to the Museum of Castellar de n’Hug (Catalunya). FERROCAIB acquired to “Ferrocarriles de la Generalitat de Catalunya” few years ago and nowadays is under restoration.
