Remarks & Notes 
Cab view of the oilfired "Mikado" 141 R # 1244 like new or better. The engineer will sit on the left side, because the locomotive was built for the french SNCF. After more then 12 years or about 4400 days 141 R 1244 was put under steam pressure for the first time again on november 9th 2010. The locomotive was built by Montreal Locomotive Works in 1946 and came to Switzerland to association "Mikado 1244" in 1976. Since the last run on september 5th 1998 there was much work done: Boiler and chassis revision, renewal of the cabin, new second steam generator placed, removing the boiler insulation (asbestos) and re-isolation, all boiler cover sheets replaced, replacing of several stay bolts, new refractory lining in the fire box, complete repainting, rebuilding brake from Westinghouse to Oerlikon system, revision and renewal of tender including trucks with new paint, new tires on all 20 wheels, extension Integra Signum train protection system and installation ETM-S and much minor things. On this day, 12th march, 2011, the locomotive made a successful test run "round the Lägern" and was then ready for her next life.
