Mocanita Through Heavy Snow in Paltin

The second day of the photo tour was blessed with a lot of snow in Paltin. The weather on the valley was changing rapidly and in each station we came across a different season.

The second day of the photo tour was blessed with a lot of snow in Paltin. The weather on the valley was changing rapidly and in each station we came across a different season.

Our trip to Faina took some time because of the heavy snow and the workers going up the valley on Monday. For this reason five trains left Viseu depot in the morning. The last one was a line working train that pulled a special horse wagon so it took some time to get to Valea Babii because “Ecaterina” (small yellow diesel) runs very slow in the snow.

At the same time it was a long journey for us returning to Viseu accompanied by other three trains. Before Delta Novat we had to wait for the last wagons to be loaded at the same place where the avalanche hit the train on Saturday.
