[FI] UKLight visits Finnish port of Vuosaari [Updated: 2014-03-30]

Home Stadler Rail Valencia UKLIGHT Beacon Rail Class 68 [FI] UKLight visits Finnish port of Vuosaari [Updated: 2014-03-30]

According to this (Finnish) forum, the future Beacon Rail / DRS 68001 has arrived in the Finnish port of Vuosaari. At the moment we have no idea if this is an intermediate stop on its way back to Valencia from Velim or if it's there for other reasons, because Finland seems a bit off-route.

Update: An image of the loco on a low loader at the docks on March 28 can be found here: link. It has been indicated that for logistic reasons the detour via Finnland was chosen to get the loco to Spain, efficiently using existing shipping services.
