Goteburg, Sweden: Russian sleeping car, Summer, 1969 (012r)

Goteburg, Sweden: Russian sleeping car, Summer, 1969 (012r)
After Oslo, I headed back down along the south coast of Norway and west coast of Sweden to Goteberg. I had wanted to go to Stockholm, but did not have enough time. Goteburg was interesting, but few of the pictures from there came out well.

One thing that did fascinate me in Goteburg was seeing a Russian sleeping car in the train station. СПАЛНЫЙ ВАГОН (pronounced something like "spalnee vagon") translates to "sleeping wagon".

Pictures in this set (Military Years) are from when I was in the military, from 1967-1970. All photos were originally slides, a friend spent very many hours restoring those slides to being viewable. Best viewed as part of the Military Years set.
