The first steam train of the children's railway
The first steam locomotive of this railway, C from 00-01. What is surprising - a homemade engine, built by the Komsomol members of the factory school at the PRVZ and regularly worked on the children's railway line for 25 years (from 1936 to 1961). The weight of this engineering miracle is 1.5 tons; overall dimensions are 1/5 of the size of an “adult” steam locomotive.

Motor vehicle Yubileiny
The Yubileiny motor transporter was made by the Krasnoyarsk depot in 1986 on the aggregate base of the Moskvich-412 car (there are Kulibins in Russian villages!). The locomotive is stylized as an electric train ER9, and is equipped with a gasoline-powered internal combustion engine. Over 20 years of work traveled 16,000 kilometers!
