Ny-Ålesund is a research town in Svalbard, Norway - 78°55′N. This loco here is from 1909 and used to haul coal from one of the several coal mines near settlement.
Ny-Ålesund on üks maailma põhjapoolsemaid asulaid Teravmägedel (78°55′N). Tegevus algas siin kivisöe kaevandamisega ja sellest ajast on pärit see vedur aastast 1909, mida kasutati kaevandusest kivisöe sadamasse vedamisel. Praegu asuvad Ny-Ålesundis mitmete riikide polaaruurimisjaamad.

This is a fabulous image, the train speaks of hard work and what has been, and what a view to rest by!
