ChME3 diesel locomotive at Kaluga-1 railway station. The building of the Kaluga City Railway Station was built in 1898 and perfectly corresponded to the spirit of that time. Made of red brick, it harmoniously blended in the interior of the old city, symbolizing the power of technology over the "wooden merchant Kaluga." In the architecture of the building there is a mixture of many stylistic architectural types of buildings, and the project itself was considered "ideal" for that time. This station is also very fortunate - it has stood the test of time. Almost all the decoration of the facade, external and internal decoration have reached our days in its original form. The building is also curious because almost all known historical and cultural figures of the past century have visited it - from Emperor Nicholas II to Vladimir Vysotsky.
A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
