Russian Railways Turn 175

The engine arrives at Rizhsky Station, and puts out a final toot on the whistle. The last stop is the Museum of the History of Railway Technology. It’s a museum in the open air, housed between the tracks serving commuter trains, and those for long-distance departures. There are over 70 exhibits – from wagons from the time of Tsar Nicholas II to modern high-speed trains.
