Mocanita is the Romanian forestry narrow gauge steam train that was born more than 100 years ago.

 

Unlike the standard gauge trains that run on 1435 mm gauge, mocanita track gauge is 760 mm for an easier access on the rocky valleys hidden in the century old forests. Mocanita is that little steam train going up to the forest in the morning with empty wagons and bringing them back, loaded with heavy logs for the small home village. Through mountains and deep forests the train follows the valleys and the river banks to the delight of the tourists.

This steam train is not only a production transportation mode but an out of the ordinary curiosity. Generally the trains are big and massive machines that run with precision and speed, but mocanita is steaming around working hard on every slope out there in the wild.

Therefore mocanita is an invitation for an adventure in the wild Carpathians. An invitation for you to discover or to remember the wild nature landscapes, the fresh forest air and the taste of the forest fruits.
