Fixing Trains - The Railroad Engineering Works

The weather was fantastic, so my wife and I went out exploring today.
We took the train to our destination - an adequate means of transportation, since our first object of the day was a railroad engineering factory.
These factories - called "Ausbesserungswerke" (repair works) by the "Reichsbahn" (the German State Railraod from 1920-1945) - were placed all over Germany and mainly used to conduct large repairs, general inspections and the workup of exchange parts.
Besides that, trains were refit, modernized, and sometimes even built here.

The first building we entered were the administrative offices.
The vandals had obviously been there before us, but I still managed to get a couple of decent shots.
