On Saturday, July 4, 2020, in the Mini train museum – Backo mini express, the elections for the most beautiful locomotive of 2020 were held. On the eve of real, serious and for Croatia important elections, these “unimportant”, but no less interesting, took place. Visitors were offered candidates from different eras, so they could choose between old steam locomotives from the period between the two world wars and the most modern ones, led by LYRIA, a superfast locomotive that travels at an average speed of over 300 km/h.
58 visitors proceeded to the vote. One invalid ballot was established by counting the votes, and from 57 valid ones we got the following results:
1) With 24 votes, the first place was convincingly won by the locomotive ROYAL BAVARIA (12 votes Czech RAILJET, 9 votes DRG steamer, 7 votes LYRIA and 5 votes SNCF version TEE),
2) Awards (family annual ticket) were won by: Edo Toplak, Martina Orešić and Iva Zipato
Congratulations to the winners, and they can pick up their prizes from July 6 to 10 or after our vacation (from August 2 onwards), from 10 am to 6 pm in Gundulićeva 4. We also thank all visitors who responded to the invitation to, in addition to free sightseeing of the largest layout in Southeast Europe, give their contribution to the selection for most beautiful loc of 2020.
