Mass Transit, Romanian Style

“Mass Transit” – the Vaser Valley Railway, Romania has a very random assortment of converted vans that run on its 760mm narrow gauge track. Built between 1933-35, partly wrecked by the Nazis in WWII and rebuilt after, it was mainly a forestry railway, running for 50km in the Maramures region of Northern Romania.  The converted vans are used by forestry workers and locals, more conventional trains including steam services run throughout the year. The English language website for the railway is here

There’s a short YouTube film here
