A legend among locomotives, “Mammutt” has even become the subject of a modern saga, currently under construction, narrating the events of her record-breaking journey (see Coach 4G).

Nmr. 19 Lokomotiv, “Naroznikkviivljotat”, commemorates the National Library of Noorii, located in Poortsstraad on the south bank of the Ulaava in the capital city. Alongside the museums and universities, the library was the seat of our culture, holding the national archives and at least one copy of every book ever published in Noorskii-Nooriisk. The appointment of Head Librarian was a matter of some significance and several eminent figures have occupied the position - the poet, Priit Laakmann, for example, whose great-nephew, Luudo, may be found in Coach 8E and Edvaard Raavde whose name we meet as it comes around again (see Electric Locomotive No. 3).
