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!

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

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.
