All of the pictures and videos in the links below were taken in late July - early August 2008 while my wife and I were on a Scandinavian/Baltic Sea cruise. Whenever the opportunity presented itself, I looked for a train station or a train excursion. We visited eight countries in sixteen days. While the focus was anything but train watching, I did succeed in getting some interesting pictures of trains that I had never seen before. Tallin in Estonia was a good example. I also saw two unusual trains while in Berlin, a vintage DR VT 175 (DR VT 18.16 or DB 675) and a current Class 180 pulling the Berlin-Warsaw Express. I also took a vintage steam train excursion in Arhus, Denmark.

As the guides said throughout our tour, "Have a look!"

Revised: Pictures and videos of trains in Berlin and East Germany. The ship, the Rotterdam, docked in Warnermünde in formerly East Germany. We took a train to Berlin, arriving at the Berlin-Lichtenberg station. It was there that I say the VT 175 on a siding adjacent to the station. Perhaps someone from Berlin could give some history to this train. I saw several other loks but the most interesting was when we were leaving Berlin from another former East Berling station, Berlin Gesundbrunnen station, where I saw a dingy and dirty BR 180 pulling the Berlin-Warsaw Express. It had shiny white cars but was litteraly without many passengers. Among the photos is a red e-lok I could not identify and need help with the writing on the lok and its class.

Revised: Pictures of an old steam train in Arhus, Denmark. We took a steam train excursion on a lok that is younger than it looks. It was built in Arhus in 1949 and is used for this daily excursion. I was able to take pictures inside the cab which was quite small and very hot.




Revised: Pictures of several Estonian trains in Tallin. I was able to make a quick visit to the station at Tallin. The steam lok is on a special display track. The loks were certainly different and unlike any lok that I have seen.





Revised: Pictures of trains in Helsinki train station. I didn't have much time to take pictures but I did get these few.






Revised: Pictures of trians in the Central Station in Stockholm. There were a wide variety of loks and coaches in the station.






Revised: Pictures of trains in the Copenhagen Central Station and in the Elsinore/Helsingør Station.






Revised: Pictures and video of trains in Malmo, Sweden. My wife and I took a train from Copenhagen to Mamö. In the yards, ourside the Malmö station, I got pictures of a variety of SJ loks and coaches.
