Lenin’s Train…

One of the most fateful trains in history: It arrived in Petrograd’s Finland Station a century ago, in April 1917. And thus began the European, then the global Civil War: “The piratical imperialist war is the beginning of the civil war throughout Europe … Any day now tha whole of European capitalism may crash. The Russian revolution accomplished by you has prepared the way and opened a new epoch. Long live the worldwide socialist revolution!” (quoted by Catherine Merridale, pp. 218-219)
