The Russian web is a mine of railway goodies, let’s dig it !

Beautifully evocative picture of electric double-unit VL10-519, a former main line DC locomotive built 1969, ending its carrer for OAO Apatit, an iron ore mining company. Seen exiting tunnel with a train of loaded dump cars from the Kirovsky mine towards Yuksporiok [Юкспориок] station.
