Germany - Saxon Steam
Steam railroads - a truly Saxon experience
The Saxons have always been known as ingenious for their spirit of invention in the areas of industry and technology. 1839 was the year in which the first long-distance railroad in Germany began operating - between Leipzig and Dresden. The ‘Saxonia’ puffed her way along the 71-mile track and entered the annals of history as the first German-built steam locomotive.

Today, there are still more narrow-gauge steam trains running in Saxony than anywhere else in Germany. This website invites you to experience these nostalgic trains in a unique landscape. And there are a host of other sights to see along the tracks.

Germany, Hannover - Hannover Tramway Museum
Hanover, Germany - The Museum comprises the only nationwide collection of tramcars in Germany, located on the site of a former potash mine in Sehnde-Wehmingen, southeast of Hanover.

About fifty trams are on display in the exhibition hall and a provisional carbarn, representing German trams from horsetram to the sixties. Additional elements like pantographs show special aspects of tramway history.

Exibition Hall Inside a former administration building we are arranging small exhibitions of tramway technics and tramway systems of Hannover and Brunswick. The photo shows the interior of a former underground interlocking, now part of our exhibition.

In a small cinema we present old tram films mostly black and white. In another room you can drive a Berlin tram yourself with a tram simulator turning a genuine old controller.

On opening days at least one tram is in service over a 2.5 km distance. Our trams depart every 20 minutes with additional cars during rush hours. One tram ride is free if you hold a valid entrance ticket.

On the museum site there are about 4 km standard gauge tracks which we already electrified. Over the next years we will amend more tracks to create a loop for single ended tramcars.

India - Palace On Wheels Online
It's a journey worthy of kings. No wonder the experience is labelled the Palace on Wheels. With its cream saloons, embellished with intricate designs, chug through Rajasthan on a journey through the former royal kingdoms of this state. Once ruled by kings whose presence lingers on in forbidding fortresses and fairytale palaces, now converted into museums, hotels, and restaurants where retainers serve truly royal repasts.

Japan - Kyoto Railway Museum
On April 29, 2016, the Kyoto Railway Museum opened to the public, offering the opportunity to experience Japan’s steps toward modernization through its railway history in the city of Kyoto, where both tradition is valued and innovation continues.

The fundamental concept of our museum is to become the hub of railway culture that progresses with its community. We seek to unite ourselves with local communities by setting a basic mission: to contribute to the revitalization of local communities through business activities centered on the railway.
