About Mocanita Viseu de Sus

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.

The Mocanita is therefore the only European railway that is still used for timber production.

Today, regular steam trains for tourists and rail enthusiasts operate from spring to autumn.
The route has a length of 22 km (one way) and is very spectacular, because it goes right into the heart of Maramures Mountains.

Forest railway route has a length of 47 km, but the tourist route is only 22 km (one way) and starts from Viseu de Sus and ends in Paltin station.
