On the 100th anniversary of our country's independence, Poles received a gift from the Lithwanans. Our guys, they made … Lithuanian locomotives.
Lithuanian Railways "Lietuvos geležinkeliai" made an original gift to celebrate the Independence Settlement Day of the Polish Republic – the national anthem in the performance of the locomotives – says the Lithuanian transporter.
The original performance was carried out by the Zbigniew lewicki maestro.
On this important day, we wish every Pole. Poland is an important business partner for us today, especially when our countries have contacted the Rail Baltica rail line. The national anthem sounded with locomotive sounds that stimulate the attitude of the company "Lietuvos geležinkeliai" – we believe in non-standard solutions, we are breaking up with current stereotypes and we are a modern partner for our clients.
– says Mantas Bartuška, Director General of the company "Lietuvos geležinkeliai".
The leader, virtuoso violin and ex-Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra undertook the removal of uniform sounding of seven locomotives.
First of all, I want to make a wish – I'm Lithuanian Pole, that's why these holidays are important to me
– said the musician who was driving the locomotives. – The circumstances and work made me much more impressive – more technical than custom – he added.
When performing the piece, the leader felt in the nineteenth century.
I'm used to see a leader with a baton. I also use it every day. This time I was doing when playing the violin – this practice was normal in the nineteenth century. Johann Straus was immortalized as a leader with even violin in his hands
– said Z. Lewicki.
The process was not easy and the whole team is required to be focused. According to the director of the company "Lietuvos geležinkeliai", Most effort was needed in the choice of locomotives and different sounds of their sounds. Preparations for the operation of the idea lasted over a month.
– From all of our property trains – passengers and goods, we had to carefully select locomotives with different tone sounds. This is a very difficult task, but the final impact is all surprising – it's probably no-one that Lithuanian Railways has so far realized how many sounds and keys have locomotives. Of course, we have also chosen the most musical engine drivers – M. Bartuška mentioned the views of preparations.
