Moscow’s Krylatskoye district will be the site of a new children’s railway, according to the district council’s website.
The six-kilometre railway will be built in the Skazka recreation park and offer passengers views of the Krylatskiye hills from the windows of the train. The tours will tell passengers about the area as well as about the work of the train driver and the history of Russian railways.
Each wagon of the train will be designed to resemble trains at the beginning of the 20th century and will accommodate up to 10 children. The train will be controlled by autopilot but children will have the chance to sit in the conductor’s chair.
Construction on the railway will begin in spring and it should be operational by autumn. It is expected to become the longest children’s railway in Moscow.
