These are repaired and reconditioned periodically, broken parts are manufactured by hand, with a few machines in the former Soviet Union.

Tells me the engineer responsible for plant repair these machines of 140 tons were produced during the second world war and can extend his life other 100 more years. We have steam for some time, what I don't know is if there will be enough coal in mines.
