Narrow Gauge in Transylvania

Vaser Valley & Abrud Railways see more below

The narrow-gauge steam railway which runs for 15kms up the Vaser Valley in Maramures is a fine example of a working forest railway. Transylvania Express operate a tour from Targu Mures to Maramures which is specifically designed to link with the forest railway up the Vaser Valley.

Sibiu to Sighisoara Railway see more below

Trains operated on the stretch of narrow-gauge track between Sibiu to Agnita until 2004. Although deemed unviable, it provided a lifeline to the many towns and villages along its route. Today, there is a move to restore the trackbed, and resume operation of regular trains.
