The first childrens railway in the world!

You may remember that the little person went to Mushtaidi Park in Tbilisi on his birthday. I forgot to tell you that it is the home of the world’s first children’s railway. Operating on a 1.5km track, it was opened in 1935 and was still running up until a year ago. It is expected to re-open after refurbishment. The tall person took a photograph of the original steam locomotive, which is exhibited near the entrance to the park. A plate on the cab reads in Georgian script “first steam locomotive in the world on a children’s railway in Tbilisi, 1935”.

Wow! I never knew that.
