This tour is for people who want to see vintage Russian locomotive and trains in Moscow, Pereslavl, Samara, Tolyatti, Nizhniy Novgorod and St. Petersburg. During the tour we visit Moscow Railroad at Rizhsky Rail Terminal. Opened in 2004, the museum has about 60 railway relics from Tsar’s Russia to World War II.
We enjoy the private collection of the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum at Talitsy, a little railway station, where the museum has a collection of locomotives, carriages and railway paraphernalia from the 19th century to the middle of the 20th. There are also other exhibits of the past - non railway machines and equipment. Three steam locomotives, two diesels, a selection of railway carriages and wagons, several railcars and a number of automobiles are restored to working order and may be seen in action. Saint Petersburg is the city where the Russian Railway was born in 1837. So it is the city with deep railway traditions and here people keen on this human trade will find many places of interest.
