On the Wednesday, December 12, 2012, the just recently revived 1930 Borsig-built 2-8-2 locomotive 06-018 went on the road again with the museum train. The occasion was the 110th anniversary of the Slovenian Railroads' Brass band, and she took them on the cross-country trip from the city of Maribor at the northeast to the coastal city of Koper at the opposite, southwest end. Before her night departure from Ljubljana with the empty train I took the photos of her last moments at the Ljubljana - Šiška Museum roundhouse. This was quite demanding task as the whole yard is practically without any illumination, with the only light coming from the two small flood lights on the roundhouse wall, and in the very rare moments, from the two mercury vapor lights, all the time turning themselves on and off.
