Vatican train station and railway line opens to the public

Did you know the Vatican has its own train station and railway line?

Well it does and for the first time it has opened, together with the Papal train, to fare paying passengers.

The line was built in the 1930's but is not used often.

The event marks the 60th anniversary of the founding of Caritas, the Church's charity aimed at helping the poor.

Duncan Kennedy went on board.
