Railroad station in Vyazma

The town of Vyazma is an important railroad junction between Moscow and the rest of Europe. I live in this town and here are four pictures which I took on August 1st this year, that is 12 days ago, as I was seeing my brother off on the train to Moscow.

Railway bridge over Vyazma River

 

There is a railway bridge over Vyazma River about 87,5 yards (80 meters) from our countryside house. A couple of years ago trains rolling past our place were not so noisy as they are these days. I presume it’s because wooden sleepers have been renewed and replaced with concrete ones, and now trains make a big noise rushing over the railway bridge. They are too loud now, indeed.
