A FEW CHILDREN
By George Repin
When selecting photographs for my REFLECTIONS page, to illustrate recent articles, it occurred to me that some of the pictures of children which I have taken in the course of travels, while not directly relevant to any of the topics that I have written about, might be of interest in themselves.
Accordingly, I have made a random selection from readily accessible pictures of a few to share with readers and have made them the subject of this issue of REFLECTIONS.
Stationmaster - Children's Railway. Harbin, China, 1984
Located in the Children’s Park in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, China the Children’s Train was opened on June 1, 1956. The railway is two kilometres in length running around the park with two stations – Harbin Station and Beijing Station. The train is managed entirely by children including driver, stationmaster, station staff, ticket inspectors and so on. The train can carry up to 192 passengers in six carriages with soft seats. These photographs are from a series showing the train in operation. Harbin 1984.
