Steamtrain Pikku-Jumpo TK3

The Train Was Robbed and What a Circus

Project Manager 1986-1987 City of Lahti

The greatest summer job! We printed “false money” and robbed trains. I rode an old steam train in the national costume in the role of the PR hostess for the city of Heinola. I continued as the project manager, ran the programs, printed and designed posters, ads, flyers and postcards. Local theatre companies and scout groups planned entertainment. Passengers filled the rides and we received “Finlands most fun travel product” award from the Finnish tourist board.


Painoimme väärää rahaa ryöstimme junan. Olin saanut mahtavimman kesätyön Heinolan Heilinä, kesäkaupungin PR-emäntä, jokA emännöi kansallispuvussa Lahden ja Heinolan välillä liikennöineessä höyryjuna Pikku-Jumpossa. Jatkoin parin vuoden ajan Pikku-Jumpo hankkeen projektipäällikkönä: suunnittelin ohjelmat, esitteet, julisteet. Ohjelmat tehtiin harrastelijateatteri- ja partiolaisryhmien kanssa. Matkustajat täyttivät junat. Saimme MEK:ltä Suomen hauskin matkailutuote -palkinnon!
