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. « less

We wanted to experience the Vaser Valley Forestry Railway (also called Mocanita) and we sure did. With us on the trip was our 2 years old niece. Everything went smooth until we bought the tickets. After buying the tickets, we were suggested to occupy some seats because there are no seat numbers! That means one can sit where seats are... More

In the town Viseul de Sus, in northern Romania, we made a 6 hours wonderful travel by the old fashioned train along the Vaser River Valley. The way is 21.6 km lenght along Vaser River border and the landscape is amazing, the river is swift and the valley is narrow with rocky walls. A wonderful one day trip.

Having visited the local area for two weeks recently, we went on this railway twice, for the scenery, and experiance of the wood burning narrow gauge locomotives. Both times we booked the package in which food is included in the form of a bbq, beer, soft drink and bun. The food is excellent. The railway was very busy, which was... More

We have been also on the Oravita - Anina railway, which also have an impressive view, but this is more oriented to tourists and is very good organized. If you arrive there by chance and they say that is full booked, try to wake-up in the morning and be there around 6 am and you will get the tickets. If... More

Three trains were scheduled today starting from 9 am until 10 am, so, don't worry if the 2 first are complete with guest who have chosen the lunch package and have the priority (they get a green badge) and have reserved compartments. Unfortunately during the mid-time stop at Novat, the rain started, which really downgraded the trip. Rain in the... More

We stayed overnight in Viseu de sus as the train leaves quite early, and could therefore comfortably eat breakfast at the hotel we stayed at and go buy tickets in the morning. We were two adults with our children aged 4 and 8. We all had a great time. I absolutely loved taking the train up in the woods, and... More

Firstly a word of warning. It takes a LONG time to drive around Maramures, and three hours from Baia Mare to Viseu de Seus, where the train station and CFF company is based. I would thoroughly recommend staying in the village beforehand (see our review for La Cassa). You can either turn up for the train on the day to... More

Very interesting trip. Pity there was so little information about the locomotives and the rolling stock and no exhibition about the railway. They could learn from the UK's preserved railways.
