This is a former Forestry Railway terminating in the suburbs of Miskolc in northern Hungary. Since the forestry traffic ended in 1994, the line is now only a tourist railway.
For more information, have a look at Lillafüred Forest Railway
This excellent site is how I first found this railway. In 1997, armed with a copy of it, we paid a flying visit whilst travailing between Budapest, and Sanok in Poland.
The following is a few pictures from that visit.
|Today's loco runs round its train at Miskolc-Kilián station, now the terminus of the line.|
|These 2 pictures are of the lines main sheds, and workshops.
The vehicle on the 2nd picture is not a parked car, but a railway wagon !
|A few pictures from along the line. note the guard clipping the tickets from the running board. On our trip he did the whole train this way.|
