Couple days ago near Tallinn (in Estonia its now) Soviet train has been destroyed. A survived old Russian loco called “DR1A-2283” (just like droids in Star Wars) found its last grave in Estonia and we have photos how it was.

But they scrapped it for the metal

Just imagine many people that were traveling on it. Happy children, summer brakes, trains were sort of very vital in the Soviet vast terrains.

Now being scrapped for money, capitalism has no regrets.

  1. Many of them were already sent to museums and also sold to Kazakhstan. No one else was interested in buying them. What else are we supposed to do with the old trains? Keep them rusting around?

  2. I am always sad to see rolling stock torn up as it hits the end of the line. I have always wanted to make a tiny house out of rolling stock, or trams, etc. even old they still have their uses, other than scrap.

  3. In 1924, the Revolutionary Military Council of the Soviet Union approved the use of dogs for military purposes, which included a wide range of tasks such as rescue, delivery of first aid, communication, tracking mines and people, assisting in combat, transporting food, medicine and injured soldiers on sleds, and destruction of enemy targets. For these purposes, a specialized dog training school was founded in the Moscow Oblast . Twelve regional schools were opened soon after, three of which trained anti-tank dogs.
