... raudtee Ny Alesundis Teravmägedel, tõenäoliselt kõige põhjapoolsem raudtee maailmas. Pildil olev vedur on 107 aastat vana ja saabus Ny Ålesundi 1917. aastal. Kuni 1950-ndateni kasutati raudteed söe transportimiseks kaevandusest sadamasse.
Praegusel hetkel peaks vedur olema Norras restaureerimisel.

...railway near Ny Ålesund, Svalbard, Norway - probably the northernmost railway in the world. The locomotive is 107 years old. It came to Ny Ålesund in 1917 and was used for coal transportation from the mine to the harbour into the 1950s. At present moment the loco should be under restauration in Norway.
