The armored train carrying Kim Jong-un arrives at Dong Dang railway station.
More than 60 years ago in late 1958, his grandfather Kim Il-sung also visited Hanoi on an armored train, which had its own conference rooms, bedrooms and acted as a mobile office. It had between 17 and 21 cars and a maximum speed of 60 kph. It also had a small helicopter for emergencies.
