Hermeskeil Private Train museum(Germany)

In Hermeskeil, Germany there is this private train museum. The owner has made his collection of mainly steamlocs and some diesels and electrical locs open to the public. Many people find it a shame that these trains are decaying and only have bad words for the owner. I do not agree with this point of view. It is indeed sad that these trains are unprotected, but if the owner had not bought these trains, they would be on the scrapyard. So in a way we may be happy that they are still around and that he displays his collection to the public. Hopefully there will be a solution in the near future.
So far I visited this place twice, but I will go again in September.
