Ruskeal Express - Steam train. Aerial view, winter season


Former DVOW Finalist sinaysky brings us this excellent wintertime drone video of a historic train line in the region of Karelia in Northwestern Russia.  It's called the Ruskeala Express, and it's a steam-powered train which runs between the town of Sortavala and Ruskeala's mountain park, one of its top attractions.  The Republic of Karelia is a Federal Subject (essentially, an oblast or province) of Russia, located north of St. Petersburg.  It's a largely forested land which is home to over 60,000 lakes.
