IC 274 arriving at Oulu for Helsinki—Five Years ago.

It was raining approaching midnight at Oulu, Finland, when I used my old Lumix LX7 to photograph IC 274 bound for Helsinki on July 29, 2015.

A pair of Russian-built Sr1 electrics led the train of largely new sleepers.

Five Years Ago-July 22.

On this day in 2015, I was visiting my friend Markku Pulkkinen in Oulu, Finland.

Oulu is far north, and in July it never gets completely dark.

Working with my then new FujiFilm XT-1, I made these evening photos late in the day near the VR locomotive sheds at the north end of Oulu’s expansive yards.

Finland is one of my favorite places to photograph, and I hope to return someday when travel returns to normal.
