The plant also included four deep wells, two surface water collection basins, and a building for pumps and a building for the pump station attendant and his family. The plant was constantly operated and maintained by the pump attendant. From the pump station, water was pumped into the reservoir of the water tower. From this reservoir, water was supplied at high pressure via large cast-iron pipes to the three water cranes used to refuel steam locomotives in Eilsleben. A water crane could deliver 10 m³ of water per minute and completely refill a locomotive in about three minutes. The total water supply of the tower was sufficient for about five to seven locomotives. The system also included a float that closed a valve when the elevated tank was completely filled and prevented further water from flowing in. There was also an overflow that led to the open air at the base of the tower. Another valve also allowed the tower to be completely emptied. In later times, the pump house was also used to chlorinate the drinking water for the railroad workers' houses. *Wikipedia

We stopped for two nights at Alex and his family, on the way to the north. Super nice hosts. Everything was perfect. Ideal terrain to switch off and just enjoy the peace and quiet. Ideal also for our dogs, they also felt very comfortable. If we come back to the area, we will gladly stop again at the old pump station at Alex.
