Development of the Russian railway business has had a long way. This is particularly evident when comparing the first local locomotive with a new locomotive of the “Sapsan*” train.
By the way, avid travelers can go to www.rzdtour.com — http://www.rzdtour.com/routes/tourtrain/ or http://www.rzdtour.com/en/routes/day-off-trains / (for English-speaking community), where you can find a list of retro train routes. Unfortunately, the range of travels available varies for residents of Russia and foreigners. Seems one has to have a good knowledge of the Russian language. So my English-speaking friends will most likely need an interpreter or a ready-to-accompany them Russian friend. Personally, I’m interested in the route «Up to the sky by train», so expect a new photo report.
Last but not least, all my readers are invited to participate in a small competition. The photo at the left represents one of the most common types of Russian locomotives, it remains only to guess which one. The most attentive subscriber gets a gift of three basic grammar lessons. By the way, you can easily transfer the prize won prize to your friend / relative / acquaintance and a good soul. Good luck!
