The SKGLB-museum shows relics of the former Salzkammergut-Lokalbahn (abbreviation: SKGLB) that was a railway line in 760 mm (2 ft 5 1516 in) gauge track from Salzburg to Bad Ischl [1] with a branch to Mondsee - a town located at the lake Mondsee. The engine shed of the terminal station at Mondsee is the only preserved engine shed of this line. It has been converted to a museum about the line and its history and contains a collection of original vehicles, photographs and a model layout of the SKGLB's Mondsee branch. The line was privately owned firstly by the Bavarian company "Lokalbahn Aktiengesellschaft" known as LAG. This company owned the cog railway from St. Wolfgang to the Schafberg too which is still in operation.
