After 6 years of forced rest because her boiler certificate has expired, Slovenian Railroads' museum locomotive 06-018, built in 1930 by German locomotive builder Borsig, will run again. After some minor repairs and after passing the boiler inspection, which granted her a one-year operating certificate, she came to the Ljubljana-Moste locomotive workshops for wheel load weighing. This checking shows if the wheel springs are balanced and the weight of the locomotive is distributed equally to all wheels. While the scale showed some differences, the locomotive passed this test, and after some other additional minor repairs done during the next two days she was ready for the short test run to Kranj. The 30 miles trip passed without glitches, and so did the final, grand test ride on November 10th over the mountainous Bohinj line from Jesenice to Nova Gorica and back. The guys in the museum workshop did the excellent job and now she is ready for the next season of the museum train rides.
