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.

With the CFF, we went for the basic package, which included a one night stay in a disused railway carriage, a four course dinner and a buffet breakfast, plus the ticket for the steam train the next day! We thoroughly enjoyed this experience. The night...More

I'm very happy we still have such incredible places! I had the feeling I was back 100 years ago. The landscape is stripped of fairy tales, the railroad is the narrowest in Europe, the benches of the train are made of wood, the oldest locomotive...More

It is a long way from Bucharest to Viseu de Sus and if your only objective is the logging railway, it really is not worthwhile. We had a car rental and spent three weeks touring Romania. The train ride was a way of taking a... More
