Attraction Details
Owner description: 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.

“Very pleasant day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We have enjoyed this trip with "Mocanita" a lot! Too bad you don't get to go further.

When you buy the tickets you also get the map where the attractions are listed. If you want to leave at 9 o'clock, then be sure to be at the ticket counter latest at 8! Otherwise you will get into one of the other 2 trains which leave from half to half an hour (only 3 trains a day!).

You can make a reservation, but only if you also buy food! We didn't, and we've eaten very good up in the mountains, at the last stop - you can buy grilled sausages and pork meat, but also beverages.

Even of you go during summer take care and bring some sweaters is it can get quite cold up-there!

Other than these, we've enjoyed a lot our visit here!

“The best trip with Forestry Railways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I've took the special Edition of this trip and listen to the National Philharmonic from Transylvania.
The Paltin station is very well organized and has everything you might need - food, drinks, places to stay, candles and may other simple thing that make us happy.
We also had a big fire after the show. The trip was about 2h but it was fun!

“wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

It was just great, the ride took the whole day with a break at one of the stations above. Since we were a sizable group and there were 2 trains, also a show was held there with performers of local music. Just great...
