OUR FLEET

STEAM LOCOMOTIVES

Between the years of 1993 and 1997, Turistren acquired 9 abandoned steam locomotives from the courtyards of the old railroad workshops in order to analyze which could be restored and brought back to life. All locomotives were the same brand in order to be able to use the spare parts from one to another
 
To the date we have rehabilitated and restored 5 locomotives which are in perfect operation.
