    Don't know if you guys will find this interesting or not, but my other life involves working at a major railway signalling and control company. Now called Invensys, it was formerly Westinghouse Brake & Signal, and for all sorts of reasons I've ended up as a sort of unofficial archivist.

    We've published a couple of books on the history of the Company, but thought you may find some of the photos in these interesting - some fantastic engineering from the 1890s through to the 1940s.

    Great pictures from the train workshop, Tommi
    Always interesting to see what one can find inside of such a workshop of old things.
    Come up with more pictures when you can.

    Signs for all purposes.


    A old coffee can, perfect to store some nuts and bolts or whatever.



    That's all for now, but I'm kind of planning to return bringing some more lenses with me...
    Many thanks for the friends at ÖSlJ.

    Upstairs there's a storage of all kind of probably-good-to-have-stuff.




    A oil can.


    A telephone switch board.


    Drawings can be handy.


    Or some replacement glass tubes to the lamps.


    More lamps.

    A lot of work going on. Seen from far to near: Lessebo, the chassis of #2 Virå, and the chimney of locomotiv "9".


    Something says that there's a lot of work left to be done before "Virå" is ready for operaton again. yes, it's the chassis where the buckets of paint are standing on...


    The "Nine" is probably a simplier case, "just" a broken axle.


    Some details.




    A little bit like Nordstjernen?

    Last afternoon a couple of friends took me along for a visit to the workshop where a lot of repairs were being made to keep the material in good usable shape.


    Typical winter outside.


    Locomotive #8 "Emsfors"


    The electric locomotive #15 "Garpen"


    The building plate of "Lessebo"...


    ...and some details.
