Caucasian VII (Steam Tour)

Returning to the area of our very first Russian tour in 1992, we cover 3,500 miles (5,700 kms) on a nostalgic rail journey by steam haulage from Moscow down to the North Caucasus and along the warm waters of the Black Sea coast. We plan to use over 20 different Soviet-era steam locomotives for this journey including 6 x P36 type locomotives. Full details of all the steam locomotives to be used will be released in due course.
