Lillafüred Forest Railway (Miskolc, Hungary)

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.

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. msik1s.jpg (14098 bytes)

The vehicle on the 2nd picture is not a parked car, but a railway wagon !
