Tomasz the tank engine


Not exactly as impressive as The Flying Scotsman or Mallard, but this Soviet-era TU7 (designated a TU46 in service

with the Slovakian State Railways) was a trusty workhorse of shunting operations throughout the Soviet Bloc as well

as aligned countries Vietnam and Cuba, and even in Guinea in West Africa. After much planning, this nice example

is now enroute to a new life with a preservation railway in the valleys of Wales, hopefully for many years to come.
