Uzbekistan’s Railway museum

I have put up a page on Uzbekistan’s Railway Museum in Tashkent, which has a number of steam and diesel locomotives and is surprisingly popular with couples seeking romantic photographs?!

Do any train enthusiasts have any idea what this machine here is? My best bet is it might be a Soviet tamper?

I don't know what this is?

Railway Museum pages now up

I seem to find myself coming across steam trains in various states of disrepair throughout my trip.  Sometimes in museums, sometimes just outside train stations.  Given I’ve now amassed quite a few photos of these I thought I would put up a new part of my blog to show them off, away from the eyes of those who might think this all “a bit sad…..

I’m not (he said defensively) actually a particular train geek so I have no idea what the identity of most of these trains are, and even when they was a plaque or something saying what they were its not something I have cared to note down. Instead what I’ve done is split them down into where they can be found.  (links will be added to this post as I upload the pages or can be found in the page menu on the left.)

I like the “elephant graveyard” feel of a lot of these places, at the photos I take reflect that.  I tend to prefer the ones left to rust and decay.
