A Baltic Adventure

It has been a little quiet on the posting front for the last week or so. The reason, as often seems to be the case was another escape from the country to chase down some trains. The destination this time was the Baltic states of Lithuania and Latvia with their appealing, and huge ex-USSR, double diesel engines hauling long Russian broad gauge freight trains. A full trip report will follow but here is a small taster of some of the delights of this trip.
