Narrow gauge railway train "Mocănița"One of the most important cultural and technical values of the country, the Narrow Gauge Railway Train “Mocanita” from Viseu de Sus is the last steam train used for timber production in the world. Built as a more practical technical solution for transporting wood, the railway is still in use, for the initial purpose, but also for tourism.
Since 1932, the Vaser Valley Railway, known locally as the "Mocanita" has been in almost constant use. Trains run into the valley six days a week to transport wood down to a processing plant in Viseu de Sus.Read more...
The Mocanita is therefore the only European railway that is still used for timber production. Today, regular steam trains for tourists and rail enthusiasts operate from spring to autumn. For details and schedules, please refer to the current timetable.
