Home / 2017 / Finland - July 2017 / Finland - Day 7 10

Day 7 (08/07/2017): Joensuu to Kouvola via the freight-only line to Ilomantsi (the most easterly railway line in the European Union) with class Dv12 diesel loco 2607, to Pieksämäki with class Dr13 diesel loco 2343, then with class Hr1 steam loco 1009 via the freight-only branch from Mäntyharju/Mynttilä to Ristiina. Unfortunately 1009 failed with a hot axle box at Hillosensalmi so we were bussed, over 3 hours late, to Kouvola!
