Our locomotives often carry names of historical figures. In this case, it’s the nineteenth century nationalist, Toomas Topp. Previous examples include “Kunikk Jaan-Friidrikk”, “Edvardis Kedrusavnas” and “Kaarel Berkmanis”, all of which ended their days in the scrap yard. Others required a change of name – “Uulfrikk Kvestjaana”, for obvious reasons, “Tsaralekksandrtva” and “Laars Klokkzinkk”. Will there one day be an “E Tovesen Laustrup”? At present, it seems unlikely.
