  • Short Summary

    Steam train runs up and down on the track outside a new railway station in the Vatican City.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Italy. For the first time! Italian railways open Vatican City Railway Station."

    Vatican City, Rome, Italy.

    Two massive gates across a railway line begin to open.

    Railway tracks under bridge. Steam engine moves slowly along tracks.

    Shot from other side of bridge showing train coming under bridge, it is going fairly fast.

    The train now reverses back along the track under the bridge. More shots of the train running up and down the track. (These are just shots of the locomotive and tender - there are no carriages attached).

    What is probably the station building is clearly visible in most of the shots. People are watching the engine from the side of the tracks.

    The massive gates are now closed across the tracks.
