Irkutsk is one of the largest cities in Siberia, it is the administrative center of Irkutsk Oblast, Russia and has a population in excess of half a million people. The city proper lies on the Angara River, the only river to flow out of Lake Baikal.
Irkutsk is a city with a fleet of aging and modern trams, which for a railfan such as I, were a joy to observe and photograph. It's all very well to take me on a walking tour of churches, the war memorial, civic buildings, markets, museums and the cemetery, all I wanted to see were the trams, trolley buses and hang out at the train station. I found a great vantage point when I was supposed to be exploring the markets, and took more than 100 photos in no time. I'll not bore you with dozens of Irkutsk tram shots today, but be warned, they're waiting in the wings.
Saw this tram coming towards me outside the train station and had to have a shot. Lovely old trams running on some scarily unstable tracks, but it all seems to work.
Some of our team members and some of the campers were baptized at 8am in freezing cold water.
