On August 28, 2009 two fireless steam locomotives have been imported from Germany. 52 8055 took them to our workshop at Schaffhausen. Fireless steam locomotives are extremyly friendly to the environment. Contrary to Diesel locomotives, which in shunting operation spend some 75% idling, emitting fumes and noise, fireless steam locomotives consume energy only when actually doing useful work. They are also reknown for silent operation. DLM plans to recommission and later modernize these locomotives.
