About Steam Train on Bohinj Railway
This three-hour-long train ride along the Bohinj railway will undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience for any true rail enthusiast. The views of Lake Bled, passing through numerous gorges, crossing many tunnels, the longest of which measures 6,327 m (3.93 miles), never fail to impress. Make sure your cameras are at hand!

The theatricals at the start and on the journey are quite good fun - Franz-Josef, his mistress and the incompetent guard are a bit of a laugh. The accordian music on the train was OK and certainly appreciated by the many Slovenians on the trip. The outward trip was rather 'tight' as pretty well every seat had been sold but the return was much more comfortable as a large group had travelled only one way. The scenery is stunning, with rivers, bridges, meadows (especially colourful in late May-early Jane) and mountains. If you get the chance to choose the excursion option i.e. get off before Nva Goricia at Kanal and take the lunch and wine-tasting coach trip - do it. Nova Goricia is a new, modern city and may not be the best use of your time before the return journey. The multiligual guides did a great job, especially when the intercom/PA system failed and they worked face to face with small groups. Thoroughly recommended

Due to the weather the steam engine was replaced by a diesel train something to do with fire hazard. The promised views were masked by trees through most of the trip although the glimpses we did get were spectacular. We also took the coach trip but was diappointed as there were so few english speaking people on the trip most of the commentary was in German as an example from the wine tasting back to the train took 35 minutes about 3 minutes of English then the rest of the trip was in German not what we paid for. Also the characters only spoke and interacted with the German guests. The trip back was littered with long stops in stations where there was little or nothing to do and as temperatures were 35 degrees it would have been better without the stops.

Dear Roger, many thanks for your review. We will try to do our best to fix that black spots but sometimes, especially that long stops are not in our power because we are dependent from the regular traffic.

Fantastic trip back on 100 years old engine. Long steam journey to the Italian border. Recommend getting the little shuttle bus from the station at nova groca into Italy as there is nothing in the Slovenia side. We got the train from Bled, there was a bit of a character performance with people in period uniform on the platform. Amazing trip!

If you love Steam trains you are in for a treat . Guards, ticket inspector and a couple were in costume to add to the atmosphere. Great views and scenery was stunning at its best. Well worth the money. Restaurant car is bit thin on food items, would advise to take your own.

Found the trip ok except the fact that one doesn't see much of the scenery due to the trees and greens along the line
