Regular Steam Trains
Since 2000, regular steam trains for tourists have been running in the Vaser Valley. The trains operate from spring to autumn. Details and schedules can be found in the current timetable.
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.
*The stop at Paltin varies according to weather and season. In high season the stop is of about 120 minutes. For all those who want to experience the Vaser Valley in a different way, it is possible to ride on one of the planned special trains into the valley.
Details of special trains are shown in the timetable.
