When the Na-class steam locomotive 14A of the Australian Puffing Billy Railway had been converted to oil firing, much progress has been made regarding the elimination of the occasional "rumbling" noises. These findings have now been applied to the oill firing of "Heidi". Before this little conversion it was possible but rather tricky to avoid the rambling. The picture taken by Georg TrĂ¼b shows the test train on September 11, 2019 between Zernez and Samedan.
