Hi Rajesh.

You are right. Those people who love steam engines come to visit all around the world this park and Railway museum in Hyvinkää also. Two years ago when I was visiting there there was a group from Germany. This time Steam Engine Museum was just opened after winter.

Have a nice day.

There are certainly a wide variety of steam engines in this park, and you did a wonderful job of capturing them.

Hi George.

I think that to maintain these steam engines which are part of our recent history, are better that if they were sold to iron junk collectors.

The problem is who shall maintain them in good condition and here the former Olympic Medalist solved this problem by establishing this cool Steam Engine Park of his own.

Thank You for Your comment.

Un abrazo amigo.
