    Great article. Are all pictures from the same museum?.
    Is it St. Petersburg Railway Museum? I would love to go there. They seem to take good care of their locomotives.

    I love trains. I wish the railroads would become an important form of transportation again in the US. Any country that keeps their railroads is a smart country in my opinion.

    Cars are cool, but they are an inefficient way to answer peoples need for transportation.
