End of the world" train


It travels along the same rails as in times of a prison, “End of the world Prison”, when it transported the prisoners to their tasks in the cold forest, mainly to cut logs to guarantee the necessary firewood used for cooking and heating at the prison.
In 1994 after 42 years of silent retirement (the prison was closed) the train resumed its old circuit

The steam locomotive consume 500 liters of water and the most important thing is to keep an eye on the boiler, so it does not run out of water", said one of the drivers

The photo was taken at a stop when locomotives are changed, the man, a driver, was checking one before beginning the trip back to the main station
