In the days between Christmas and New Year a lot of work has been done at Minkiö with the 103-year-old locomotive. The modification work on the fire wood bunker was continued with laser precision. The boiler jacket was cleaned, primed and painted 2-3 times. The frame and wheels were scraped, sanded and cleaned. The frame was painted with primer and topcoat. Once we get the blue topcoat paint the wheels can be also painted.
