An international tourist train is to be launched by the beginning of the next Iranian year (March 21), a senior official at the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways said.

According to Mirhassan Mousavi, the deputy head of the company, the train will take tourists to Tehran, Fars, Isfahan and Yazd provinces before returning to Tehran, travel news website Donyaye Safar reported.

Speaking at the 11th International Tourism Exhibition held on Jan. 23-26 at Tehran's International Fairground, Mousavi said tourist trains are operating in a number of provinces to help develop tourism.

Given the popularity of tourist trains across the world, Iran’s national railroads company is endeavoring to catch up with other countries.

A tourist train is not intended as a practical transportation, but as a museum-style attraction to see, as an activity to do, or a means of employing historical dining or sleeper train cars as somewhere to eat or sleep for novelty or entertainment purposes.
