… Eurasia.

"The war train Zaamurets was the behemoth of the 1910s and 1920s.

Heavily armored. Bristling with guns. Everywhere it went, Zaamurets was the biggest, baddest thing around. Not many foes could touch it. If you possessed this train, you ruled the rails of early 20th-century Eurasia.

Even more stunning, this awesome, self-propelled war machine went on a journey across the world. The years-long voyage carried the train through Ukraine, Russia and China  illustrating the chaos and uncertainty of the era. The leviathan served in Tsarist, Bolshevik, Czech, White Russian and several Chinese armies.

Which is why everyone wanted it…."

A fascinating story but if the train was so big, bad and invincible why did it keep changing hands?
