Hello. I would like to show you some of my videos with our Russian steam locomotives. The first one is a shot of a trains parade. The oldest steam locomotive on this parade was built in 1897.

Great video. If I remember correctly, the ten wheelers were the largest steam locomotives used in the country. It is wonderful that all those steam engines were preserved and are run out for public display. I remember the bad old days when you could get tossed into the Gulag for photographing railroads behind the Iron Curtain. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
