Remarks & Notes 
Fittings on the boiler of 2-10-0 steamlocomotive C 5/6 2978 "Elephant" of SBB Historic, with boiler pressure manometer (max 15 bar / 217,5 PSI) and water level indicating instruments. The boiler # 3335 was built by the SLM Winterthur in 1914 for the locomotive # 2956, and was changed to the # 2978 in 1960 with regard to its preservation as a historic locomotive. The C 5/6 # 2978 was the last delivered standard gauge steamlocomotive for the SBB in 1917 and was declared historic locomotive in 1968.
