Scenes from a 10-day winter journey through Romania mostly in beautiful cold weather with some snow. I travelled there on sleeper train "Ister" and back on "Corona". The first two days I captured scheduled CFR class 60 (Sulzer) and 65 (EMD) diesel locomotives around Sibiu and Cluj as well as partly second-hand DMUs (ex German DB class 614 and Dutch NS class DH2 "Wadloper").

The main week of the trip was spent on a Tanago photo steam charter tour on the narrow gauge logging railways of well-known Vaser Valley ( Valea Vaserului / Wassertal ) and Moldovita. In total six locomotives were under steam, one day we took pictures riding a diesel railcar. Vaser Valley Mocanita is the last timber line still in operation featuring long diesel production trains hauled by Faur L45H class 87 locomotives, draisines converted from vans plus other interesting vintage and current forestry scenes.

Photo trip reports will follow soon, of course much more was captured than can be watched in the video! :)
