For fans of Russian rails and trains, Russian Railways has opened a new museum in St. Petersburg to mark the service’s 180th anniversary last year. In an old train depot near the city’s Baltic Rail Station, one can see old steam and electric engines, engage with interactive displays, and hear the sounds of various engines.
Some 3,500 artifacts are on display and the museum is open Wednesday to Sunday, from 10:30 am to 6 pm.
