Greetings! During my recent trip to Moscow, I had awesome opportunity to walk around this great city. It was early December, but despite the snow on the ground, the cold weather did not set in yet, and it was bearable to enjoy walking and exploring around.
One stop on our list was the Victory Park, which contains complex dedicated to the enormous effort that the Soviet Union put into defeating the Nazi Germany.
The first blog and photos from Vicory Park are connected with the WW II and logistical operations on the railroad.
During the WWII, the Soviet Union due to its size had to invest heavily in the railroad system to move the troops and material from the Far East to the front lines in Europe.
Special military service, Railroad Forces were established to provide necessary logistical support.
This steam locomotive is one of many that provided the necessary pulling power for driving force to push the Nazis back to Berlin!
Enjoy the photos! Cheers! 🙂
