The first 100 were built by the Tampella and Lokomo Finnish companies, and they were joined by Frichs of Denmark to produce the remainder, including no. 1163, shown in the photograph.

Hello Veikko! I was in Finland a couple of years ago and bought an excellent book, "HÃ¶yryÃ¤ suomalaisilla kiskoilla" ("Steam on Finnish rails") which is now part of my home reference library. That's where my information came from.
