Various dates in 2017: Heritage diesels in Finland

Finland is an amazing country that’s well worth a visit – I will shortly post a resume of the loco haulage that’s still to be found on passenger services there.

Sadly, diesel haulage on passenger trains is not so widespread any more, however there are a number of excursions advertised for heritage diesel haulage through the summer – featuring classes Dr12, Dr13 and a Dv15 and Dv16 pairing.
