In stock, immediate despatch

We are undertaking a journey from Joensuu in the far east of the country to Helsinki. We joined the line from St Petersburg just west of Lappeenranta and followed the modern double track railway to Kouvola where VR marshal the majority of trains from Russia. The time is now 12.22 and we are ready to depart. West of Lahti the run starts over the classic Riihimäki – St Petersburg Railway. Traditionally the route to Helsinki was through Riihimäki – this involved trains running over two sides of a triangle with Helsinki bound trains making a sharp turn to the south just north of Riihimäki station. In 2006 a cut-off was built to eliminate this dog leg – Much of the new line parallels the E18 motorway to minimise environmental intrusion. The cut-off is double-track throughout and electrified at 25 kV 50 Hz. There are platform loops serving the two intermediate stations at Haarajoki and Mäntsälä.
