Overview
More
Sometimes known as the Vaser Valley Railway, the forestry railway of Viseu de Sus is a unique example of technical cultural heritage. Travelling over a network of some 60 kilometers of narrow-gauge track, you can still find wood-burning steam locomotives running alongside several diesels and railcars. The CFF Viseu de Sus ("CFF" stands for "Caile Ferate Forestiere" - forestry railway in Romanian language) is probably the last real forestry railway still operating with steam locos in Europe. For the enjoyment of our numerous visitors, we are keeping the tradition of steam railways alive in Viseu de Sus, offering regular steam trains, charter trains with catering services and trains for special events.

It's a clasic tourist trap. Parking is free. The most interesting part is on the train station where you see how the train works. The ride in the valley is nothing special in the way of scenic and it's very long (2h). On the end...More

It is a beautiful trip with a smaller train than usual, friendly staff. Very nice scenery. Possibility for a small stroll into the forest at the mid stop point. A little bumpy on the return trip since the train goes downhill. You cand book online.
