WWII Locomotives & War Series nº 30 - by Carlos Briz (Pithead Collection)


(Class P8 locomotive - Finnish State Railways)

Let's return to WWI and to Finland this time, the place where summer lasts a full week
(with luck...).


The hardy Finns managed to make ends meet by using captured Soviet war material, together with war supplies from all over the world. 
However, it seems the Hurricane was not the best buy.

The KV1 was awsome, by any standard. 
They made a "shock and awe" impression on the Wermacht, when the landsers met them on the battlefield.
And I guess the Finns much appreciated Soviet generosity, when they managed to get their hands on some of them.
