The magical and mysterious world of steam engines, which can be seen during nostalgic or historical events, is always dominated by the presence of legendary Albatros. In the old days, this was the top-notch modern steam locomotive, which achieved the speed of 162 kph during test runs, and faithfully served to heavy passenger express trains in Czechoslovakia. These days, it's hard to imagine the feeling people had when 114 tons of steel, smoke, and steam just passed by with 120 kph on the speedometer. It's still fascinating now, back then - it must have been completely astonishing.
Only three Albatros locomotives have survived until today. One of them is the 498.112, the subject of rescue efforts by the railway fellows and die-hard train fanatics from the Nostalgic railway group. The rusty torso was parked in bushes for over 40 years and many pieces are missing. Nevertheless, the guys are willing to invest the effort to bring back the machine into an exhibitable status. We all know, that the 112 will never run again - too many parts are missing and not enough financing is available - but if the group can restore its soul and glory, the mission would be accomplished.
We're happy to be partners in this emotional project. We're honoured to watch the mighty machine raise from the ashes.
