Remarks & Notes 
In her long life, this tiny 0-4-0 steamlocomotive for 1 meter gauge was the very first time on the top of a mountain! The privately owned "Ticino" out of the collection of Martin Horath in Goldau, was built in 1889 by Jung at Jungenthal/Germany for work at the river correction in the Ticino, Magadino plain. In 1941 she was withdrawn because the boiler was worked out, but she survived for about 20 years, till she was rescued by Mister Guido Travaini from Mendrisio. He kept her dry and hidden in the basement of his house, till he died. His family loaned the locomotive in 2016 to steam expert Martin Horath from Goldau and he made it operational, together with some friends, in about 3 months. Now, on the occasion of the 150 years anniversary event of the Rigi Bahnen, the "Ticino" was loaded on the standard gauge flat car Kk # 26 (with some parts dating from 1871!) an brought up to the Rigi. Here we can see this little steamlocomotive in Rigi Staffel.
