TEM TMH shunter on Tartu port railway



storyThis was the last train on this railway - starting from July this line is closed and will be dismantled soon. Built in 1922, it’s main purpose was to connect river port and neighbouring industries with Tartu main station. Over the years many industries were shut down and usage of this line has decreased. Now the only customer of this line, Kuusakoski scrap metal yard, was forced to reorganize their logistics using more expensive road transport. There are plans to build new streets on this rail corridor, as this line runs through central Tartu.
