Red Star Railway's Comments

31 July 2018

Dear Friends --

Well!

The past week has been a roller coaster for fans of Russian railways.

First, understand: every day I check Dimitry Zinoviev's magnificent Russian railway website, parovoz.com. For years, it has been my go-to source for information on all things Russian railway.

Then, one day last week, I tried to check parovoz.com. All I got was the notice "404 -- Unable to connect to site." Too often, this means that the site is gone. Kaput. Forever.

My first reaction was to go on a five-day drunk -- to mourn the passing of the finest and most essential website about Russian railways ever created. And no wonder!

But then one time when I checked the parovoz.com URL, the reply was in Russian. When I first read it, I felt hope for the future of parovoz.com. The notice stated that the site was being moved to a new, super, faster server.

So I held my breath. And I checked parovoz.com every day. Actually, and to be honest, several times a day. After all, I really want parovoz.com back again.

And today it happened. It's back again -- https://parovoz.com.

Okay. Now I'm considering going on a five-day drunk -- this time to celebrate (in my way) the return of parovoz.com.

Dmitry, thank you.

Kindest regards,
