Well Beijing is a city with many well-known museums, like the Capital Museum or Beijing Museum. But there is another museum in Beijing that few people know and that is Beijing Railway Museum. I come to know this museum through a friend Jim. He is a big fan of trains and he knows all the history and background stories about trains. What the Railway Museum to him is what a Disneyland to a 7-year-old girl. It is not until he told me about this place that I came to know there is really a museum of trains.
I guess most people who know little about trains hardly know this place. It has exhibited more than 50 trains, whose years date back to 1881 to 1993. In the Railway Museum, you can see the first steam train in China, some other trains named after Chairman Mao and General Zhude, and trains made by other countries like England, US, Japan, Russia and Belgium.
I think the main reason why there are few people knowing about the museum is that people, know little about the trains and they are not interested in the development of trains at all. Every single train is the work of many scientists’ research and practice, less appealing compared with the soul-stirring stories in the dynasty in ancient years. Meanwhile, the advertisement of this museum is pretty weak, which increases the hardness for the public to know about the museum.
It is an interesting place, especially to kids and also grown-ups who are crazy about trains. These old trains are like big toys to them. They fancy every train they see. The different colors, shapes and styles also leave a deep impression on me. Walking around in the museum, I seem to feel the passing of time.
