The Oberland railway ran until 1952/1953 between Neustadt and Landau as a public means of passenger transport. The name "Die Schneck" was given to the tram in the vernacular because it was not the fastest.

The artists Volker and Florian Krebs created the steel sculpture, which depicts the driver's cab of the railway including tram driver and boarding passenger, on the occasion of the 1250th anniversary celebrations of the municipality of Böchingen in 2017. The sculpture can be found in front of today's ballroom - where the stop used to be in the village.
