Which way?

Heinävesi railway station 2022

Which way? Left? Right? Straight?

I saw this sign at the end of the small platform. It speaks a language I do not understand, known only to the train staff.

There are four passengers’ trains passing through this small rural station each day. Just two carriages linking Joensuu and Pieksämäki plus few villages in between.

Now and then a locomotive passes by on its way to pick up a train at the next station.

I have not seen yet one of those long freight trains stopping to pick up freshly cut logs. I might see one one of these days if I stay long enough. We’ll see.
