Overview of Children's Railway
Gyermekvasút, or Children's Railway in English, is a narrow gauge railway in Budapest, connecting Széchenyihegy and Hűvösvölgy, about 12 kilometers long. Gyermekvasút's old name was Gyermekvasút (Pioneer railway - because this place was related to the communist scouts).
The train driver is an adult, and the station operator will be a child from 10 to 14 years old who works with the adults.
In 1947, the Hungarian State Railways company (MÁV) decided that a railway run by children would be built, and construction began in November 1948. In March 1950, this railway was opened. But then, during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, the railway was closed and fortunately it was not damaged.
In 1957, the Children's railway reopened and in addition, a museum right at Hűvösvölgy station was also inaugurated. This museum specializes in displaying objects of the Communist era.
