The first intra-provincial tourist train in Kerman Province which made its first trip last week will operate on a weekly basis. According to the head of provincial office of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, the new train sets off from Kerman and moves toward Rayen and Bam cities, going past the nearby historical attractions, ISNA reported. Pointing to the short distance the train covers, Gholamreza Farrokhi said only a small number of Kerman's multiple sites are located near the route. He, however, pledged to add other sites located near railroads in the plan. "The first day-long tour was held last week as an opening trip," he said. Reportedly, the project, which has been implemented jointly by ICHHTO, the Railways Company and a regional travel agency, aims to introduce the province's attractions to local residents as well as domestic and foreign tourists.
