CFR 764.153 at Dej Triaj Depot

After all the big and fast steam locomotives that I have posted earlier, allow me to present a much smaller and slower, yet graceful little steamer, the CFR 764.153, displayed at Dej Triaj depot. The little narrow gauge loco, built by the Uzinele "23 August" (also known as Uzinele "Faur" and Uzinele "Nicolae Malaxa") factories, has a top speed of only 30 km/h.

ID: CFR 764.153
Wheel arrangement: 0-8-0T
Built: 1949
Builder: Uzinele "23 August" (Bucuresti)
Top speed: 30 km/h
Gauge: 760 mm
Location: Dej Triaj, Romania (depot)

The locomotive has been recently restored and looks very nice, but it's not being used anymore.

Must be nice, you can visit them eveyr day. By the way, do you know what's with that inscription on the entrance gate that it's forbidden to enter and trespassers will be punished? I thought it's an open museum... Were there any changes since last summer?
