Russian enthusiast builds his own steam train mini-railway

He and his friends are now busy building a steamboat and are also planning to make a steam plane

For Pavel Chilin, building his own railway was the fulfillment of a childhood dream. It took the 62-year-old electrical engineer more than 10 years to build a 350-meter (383-yard)-long narrow-gauge railway twisting through the grounds of his steads about 50 kilometers (some 30 miles) outside St. Petersburg. The design of his steam train is based on a classic example from the early 20th century.
