Who are we and what do we want?
Köping–Uttersbergs Railway Preservation Society, KUJmf, is a non-profit association founded 1975 with its home in the city of Köping, Sweden.
The purpose of this association is to preserve and bring to life material and immaterial memories of the Köping–Uttersberg–Riddarhyttans Railway, KURJ. This purpose is met by the following activities:
work for establishing a railway museum and a vintage railway in Köping,
preserve and renovate rolling stock and other objects held by the Society,
work for writing down stories of the KURJ,
gather the Society members around the tasks above by publishing the periodical Uttersbergar’n.
KUJmf has club rooms with an exhibition in the old KURJ station building in Köping. Beside the station building, which also houses a restaurant, lies the engine shed which to its exterior mainly resembles the first engine shed in Köping. The KURJ rolling stock in our care is stored in the engine shed. In addition to the only preserved KURJ steam engine and two passenger coaches there is also an interesting inspection trolley and some bicycle trolleys.
