Churches on rails

Catches the attention from the very beginning! 

Russian Railways exploit such spiritual logistics on the very long Siberian routes, maybe because of the vast natural landscapes which make people well-disposed towards higher values.

Anyhow, the Russian mobile church concept dates back to the pre-rail 18th century, but as the glory days of the steam age kicked in, so did churches on rails, but then the Bolsheviks came and de-railed them.

Nowadays we can observe a revival of these specialized wagons.

Today nine churches rail-travel throughout Siberia, of en being a part of sanitary trains, when one can consult with a doctor, buy medicine, or attend a mass.

These churches are completely supplied, and the only difference is that they have bells inside, not outside like a regular Orthodox Church. 

And wait - they go on rails!
