Čiernohorská železnice: Čierny Balog – Vydrovo

The Čierny Balog - Vydrovo line is not only one of the first accessible sections of the Čiernohorská Railway, but it is also the most visited. A diesel locomotive with tourists has been running on this four-kilometer line since May 1, 1992. It pulls a number of different cars, consisting of several old train sets. If you have a stroller, use a special wagon, in the past served as a dining. The entrance to it is not barrier-free, but the wider door allows you to lift the stroller or wheelchair and load it into the car.

The dispatcher whistled and the train left the station in Čierny Balog. Along the road and the creek that line the houses of the local village, he headed for the forests, where wood was once mined. Today, this place has turned into an open-air museum, reminiscent of the history of work in the forest and also the economic and environmental significance for society. Of course, the forest railway also fits into this concept, because it was a part of it and a great advantage in logging in the 20th century.
