Welcome to "Phil's Loco Photos"

Another trip to Russia, this time I flew to Moskva and then took an internal flight on a Ilyushin 86 to Saint Petersburg and stay a friends place the whole visit. We did quite a bit of exploring the city on some days and I made the opportunity of travelling with a few of the local trains now that I was aware which ones were TEP70. During the trip I went down to KM53 once and therefore get two TEP70s in one go. The next day I went out to Gatchina to pick up an inbound turn. I returned via Helsinki so got a chance to exit on the rain via Vyborg with a big twin ЧS6 to Vyborg and then an M62 to Vainikkala, at this time it was quite common for an M62 to work the border crossing section vice VL82 dual voltage locos. I had a pair of Sr1 electrics into Helsinki and then made my way to the airport for flight back home
