Remarks & Notes 
After about 20 years work and several setbacks like fire or flooding, a second "Elephant" 2-10-0 C 5/6 steamlocomotive is (almost) finished (4 cylinder compound with about 1320 HP). The # 2969, built in 1916 by SLM Winterthur for the SBB, was rebuilt by association Eurovapor Lokremise Sulgen and is unter steam now, here it is leaving the shed in Sulgen for test runs in the station. Still there are some minor things to do, then brake test and practise runs will follow before the great planned trip over the Gotthard line together with sister # 2978 of SBB Historic in october this year. In fact, running gear, frame and cab of this locomotive is from # 2969 (displayed in Winterthur from 1969 untill 2001), but boiler and tender are from # 2958 (displayed in Olten from 1973 untill 1996).
