A Locomotive In Front Of The Salt Mine

This is a diesel-hydraulic locomotive and as far as I know, is owned by the company who owns the Praid salt mine. This locomotive is only used for shunting and if you visit Praid, then you will find it in front of the mine, near the large mine shaft. Somebody told me that they started to use the locomotive when the salt mine is closed for the tourists, usually this happens in late September. Then they shunt the empty fright cars to the mill where the workers fill them with fresh salt from the Praid salt mine.
