St Petersburg Military
Only in Russia
Missile Launching Train
The old Warsaw Railway Station in St Petersburg has been renovated and
has now been transformed to a shopping centre called Warshawsky Express.
Behind this centre is the St Petersburgh ‘Central Train Museum.
Naturally, this has an amazing collection of Soviet locomotives which
were all repainted in 2007 which was the 150th anniversary of railways
A missile launching train is one of the more ‘rare’ locomotives to see.
Many trains still sport logos of Lenin, and Stalin. One train also touts
that catch phrase to destruction, "Go forward with Communism."
For related exhibitions visit the main St Petersburg railway museum at
50 Sadovaya Street for more history and exhibits.
