Children's railways attract many tourists in Russia


14:22, August 07, 2011

A boy waits for the start of the train in Irkutsk, Russia, on Aug. 5, 2011. The children's railway was built in 1939, with a length of 3.25 kilometers. Children from ten years old to 16 years old work here as locomen, stewards, dispatchers, station masters etc. They learn railway knowledge and skills at a professional railway school in winter and experience in the real work on the railway in summer. Most of the children hope to take railway work as their future profession and therefore they work very hard to learn relative knowledge and skills. The children's railway, as a vocational training railway, also attracts many tourists here for a special experience. So far there are 26 children's railways across Russia. (Xinhua/Jiang Kehong)
