Thanks for the link!

Thats quite the interesting video!

You might note that Estonia Rail's Locomotives are in Rail World Colors! Seems to me the MMA's aren't.
Is Estonia really that much more profitable? I was under the impression that the Estonian Govt. was squeezing private rail companies pretty tight?

I believe Rail World has not been involved with the railroad anymore for a few years.

Yes, it is a very busy operation for it's size, mostly Russian exports going to Estonian ports from the border.
