Remarks & Notes 
40 years after the steam rotary snow blower Xrot # 100 was retired and exhibited in the Swiss Museum of Transport (VHS) Lucerne, this 125 years old vehicle was steamed up this day in Brugg AG. Work was made by the steam group Zürich (Verein Dampfgruppe Zürich VDZ), initiated and headed by Stefan Landenberger. The Xrot # 100 was built in 1896 by Henschel & Sohn in Cassel/Germany for the Gotthard railway, under licence of Leslie and has about 800 HP. The approximately 10-foot wheel (2,96 meter) turns at up to 140 revolutions per minute.
