Land full of history

The Viseu de Sus forestry railway, located in the far north of Romania close to the border with the Ukraine, is an outstanding example of technical cultural heritage.

Steam Trains

Last of the Carpathian Forestry Railways

Steam trains run as far as Paltin station, approximately two hours from Viseu de Sus. In Paltin there is a stop of 1-2 hours before the trains return to Viseu de Sus. For train passengers a catering service is available at Paltin. It is also possible to take a short walk into the Carpathian forest, to visit an observation platform from where visitors can get a view over the Vaser Valley.

Forestry Railways

Since 1932, the Vaser Valley Railway, known locally as the “Mocanita” has been in almost constant use. Trains run into the valley six days a week to transport wood down to a processing plant in Viseu de Sus.

Food and drink

A train ride is sure to fuel your appetite! In addition to the established catering services offered at Paltin station and the Cafebar Elefant, commencing in 2011 we have a new catering service in the “Carpatia-Express” hotel train alongside the railway station in Viseu de Sus
