And so among the withdrawn stock may be found “Jds Jaanus Skiinoorii”, “Prv Magnuus Luudokvist” and “Avguust Torssens” (all long since broken up for scrap). Unusually, No. 4 Locomotive commemorates a figure born beyond the borders of our country. No. 4 has been named after the great technocrat and writer on ekonomikva, admired by communists and social democrats alike.
