Long Description:
This was a nice surprise. There are more locomotives on display in the area, but this comes with some cars attached. It's located near the local train station. A modern facility which looks strange there, considering there is roughly nobody to use it.... no village, no factories, nothing. It was empty, of course.

Unfortunately I don't have details about the locomotive, but it should had been related with the mine exploration. Lousal has now a museum of the mine and is being well taken care of by local authorities. A nice place to visit.
