    conference in Tampere Finland, spent a few days watching
    Finnish trains :

    Very nice pictures! Glad to see pics of rolling stock from my own country :) :) :) :)
    Your pic #1 is a Sr1 electric loco, introduced starting of the seventies i think. It was mostly build in Russia.
    Pic #2 and #3 are about Dv12, a middleweight diesel that is used both for switching and main line usage. It is the prototype for my scratch build project, more info on the Scratchin ad Bashin forum.
    Pic #4 is a Dr13 heavy mainline diesel, design by Alsthom, France. Very old, started life around the sixties and I think there is still some units operational here.

    Thanks Albert!!

    I always wondered what these were!, I had a great
    time photographing them, I particularly liked the Dv12
