Imperial Transportation / 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.

Alexsander von Oldenburg and Yevgenia Maximilianova Romanovskaya bought this house in 1915. They escaped there the revolution. They owned it until 1929.

It is said that there is still lot of furniture and other items left used by Oldenbugs.
