Emperors train in Finland
« on: October 23, 2008, 01:28:37 AM »
I just bought a lovely book from the Railway Museum of Finlad. It is about the Romanovs and the finnish railways. There are magnificient photos of the three remaining railwaycars that are kept at the museum. There are also interesting photos about the Romanovs when visiting Finland. One of my favourite is when Maria Fjodorovna is pealing potatoes in the stairs of Langinkoski cottage with some officers. Unfortunately because of the copyright I quess I am not able to share the photoes with you here in the site.

This has already been discussed and the photos posted.  You can search to find them.

Oops, sorry about that. I might be stupid but I can not find any photos of those three train cars that are in the museum from this site. Perhaps you could help me, or someone?

Here is the URL for the Finnish Rail Museum that has the Russian Imperial Train.

Also, you can find info on the Rail Museum on Wiki.

Thank you Douglas.  I still canīt find any photos except the one little one from the Emperors car in museaum site. Anyway it does not matter. I have seen the cars and I have very good book and nice color  photos about the cars and my idea was to ask the permission from the author put them up here. I am happy hear that they have been posted allready here.

Here is the URL for a photo of the Tsars railcar at the Finnish museum.   It appears to be a beautiful dark blue.
