Jose: I had a vague feeling maybe it wasn't a U.S. auto - I'd guessed perhaps Mex or S American ?.

Here you can find the full story of the NG railway it used to run on ( or still does ).
Scroll down for two more photos of it.

Excellent detective work Dave & Helmut.

That last trip was good value; Eu 1,090/£880/$1,300 - wish I'd known about it.

That chunky little NG 0-8-0 looks real pretty !

Si: please note: my computer does £ & $ signs bit I ain't got that stupid double cross barred, curly E thing.

Umm, maybe I could persuade Madame S that Kiev would be a great shopping town ?
Maybe we could pass by Chernobyl if we needed a sun-tan top-up.


Nastrovya or whatever they say,   Michael

Hi Michael.

Don't worry about not having the stupid curly E key.

I suspect you aint gonna need it soon anyway...
...unless you're writing a history book !

I can assure you that the Ruskies will welcome you with open arms & wallets, if you're flashing some good ol' Yankee green-backs !!!

Cheers comrade.

Si.

P.S mine's a large Stoli. no ice...
...it's bloody cold enough already !
