Today we undertake a journey with VR IC 47 it’s Monday 3rd June 2013, we are at Hämeenlinna. The time is 11.11 and we are ready to depart on our journey to Tampere and Parkano. This is the mainline to Tampere and onward to Oulu, double track as far as the junction for Pori- the port on the Gulf of Bothnia and Finland’s most important export facility for paper products. We pass Tampere marshalling yard where wagons are classified: north Oulu and Pori or east towards Russia. Tampere has a population of nearly 220,000 making it the largest non-coastal city in the Nordic area. It’s located between two lakes, Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi. Since the two lakes differ in level by 18 metres, the rapids linking them have been an important power source throughout the city’s history, most recently for generating electricity. Tampere is dubbed the "Manchester of Finland" for its industrial past as the former centre of Finnish industry. We continue north past the Tampere pleasure park famous for the highest tower in the Nordic Region and then run to Parkano on the mainline to Oulu. The run is made in fine spring weather.
