Slovenska Strela ready after two years of renovation, but………. VIDEO

SLOVAK SHOT – An unexpected technical defect thwarted the arrival of the national technical monument‼ ️
The ceremonial event was to take place today on the occasion of the arrival of the motor car M290.002 after two years of renovation in the new pavilion in Kopřivnice????
After completing all renovations, the missile was assembled and subjected to operational tests, which are to confirm that it will be able to repeat safe operation, even when reaching a maximum design speed of 130 km / h. Unfortunately, during Sunday’s test, the rubber, so-called Hardy couplings were damaged, which ensure a flexible connection of coaxial shafts, transmitting torque from the drive units to the chassis
Due to the fact that it is a historical exhibit, using today’s not commonly used design solutions, thorough operational tests are the only way to prevent possible future failures.
The repair will take several weeks.
However, all evil may be good for something. Due to the current situation with coronavirus, the event would be very intimate only with invited guests, as the limit of persons according to government regulations is only 5️⃣0️⃣
The new date of arrival has not yet been set, but it will be the turn of February and March 2021. We firmly believe that public participation will take place on this date and it will be a dignified event that this unique hybrid motor train deserves????
Thank you all for your understanding and we will inform you about further details

SLOVENSKA STRELA – An unexpected technical defect thwarted the arrival of the national technical monument‼ ️

The ceremonial event was to take place today, December 15th 2020, on the occasion of the arrival of the motor car M290.002 after two years of renovation in the new pavilion in Kopřivnice

After completing all renovations, the missile was assembled and subjected to operational tests, which are to confirm that it will be able to repeat safe operation, even when reaching a maximum design speed of 130 km / h. Unfortunately, during Sunday’s test, the rubber, so-called Hardy couplings were damaged, which ensure a flexible connection of coaxial shafts, transmitting torque from the drive units to the chassis

Due to the fact that it is a historical exhibit, using today’s not commonly used design solutions, thorough operational tests are the only way to prevent possible future failures.

The repair will take several weeks.

However, all evil may be good for something. Due to the current situation with coronavirus, the event would be very intimate only with invited guests, as the limit of persons according to government regulations is only 5️⃣0️⃣

The new date of arrival has not yet been set, but it will be the turn of February and March 2021. We firmly believe that public participation will take place on this date and it will be a dignified event that this unique hybrid motor train deserves????

Thank you all for your understanding and we will inform you about further details.
