Hello from England,
Always great to read the latest international rail freight news, and so well reported.
I must however point out that the Russian broad gauge is actually 1520, sometimes given as 1524, but not as stated in the article above about Russian wagons passed for use in Europe. You are probably thinking of the Iberian gauge.
Meanwhile, please keep up the good work and thanks for a most informative and wide ranging regular read. Thank you!
