Snow at Viseu

The Mocanita CFF Viseu de Sus is a miracle in itself but with lots of steam locomotives in the snow it is out of this world.

A long roadtrip means you have to have a few breaks and we like to pick the locations for where you can photograph something railway-related. We departed to the Eastern Carpathian Mountains (currently the part of Northern Romania) to take photos of narrow-gauge forestry railways with steam locomotives running in the deep snow - but in the process had to visit Pusztakettős, a railway platform with an excessive collection of railway-related relics from the pantograph through signals to a complete diesel locomotive cab. In the meantime we took a photo of this Bzmot railcar in the humid weather of the sunrise colours. The photo is definitely not perfect but it shows the effort of the departure if our first break was to happen so early and at such a remote location. This photo was a first and necessary step in taking the rest of the shots in this gallery.

The Oradea to Cluj railway's construction was a difficult process; in fact, all railways were problematicly conceived and arrived late in Transylvania despite the natural resources offered by the area. Construction began by a state decision but soon an English private company (Waring&Eckersley) took over the construction and the rights for later exploitation. As the private company drifted toards bankrupcy it was nationalized and all offered lines were finished by the State Railway of Hungary (MÁV).

The collapse of the Magyar Keleti Vasút (Hungarian Eastern Railways) was quick: their initial overuse of capital because of the badly selected construction company meant all later investment and loan was useless, so when the construction budget ran out for the second time the state quickly payed the banks and nationalised the railway even before the missing Cluj-Razboieni and Campia Turzii-Turda sections could be built. It became part of the Hungarian State Railways in 1878.

Exiting Oradea by train is not the definition of beautiful as it passes through industrial areas but soon mountains appear. The double track disappears though as it is only present on sections and of course its missing from the most beautiful and most difficult to build section between Vadu Crisului and Piatra Craiului in the gorge of the Crisul Repede river. Closer to Cluj Napoca the track becomes double again but the speeds are still not incredible. Hungarian and Romanian officials announced that the reconstruction of the line for 160 kph is soon going to start all along from Cluj through Oradea to Püspökladány, lying on the existing, refurbished mainline to Budapest.

The last railway section built by the Hungarian Eastern Railway (Magyar Keleti Vasút) before its nationalisation was the track connecting the Oradea - Cluj railway with the Alba Iulia - Sighisoara - Brasov line of the company. It made use of the already existing branch line between Teius and Targu Mures, connecting to Raboieni station in 1873. In the time the Medias - Sibiu branch was also already operational.

The ASEA wearing the Romanian national colours took over the Bucusrest - Baia Mare IR from Clju Napoca and immediately took the necessary diesel with it as well, as the railway in the Somes valley from Dej to Jibou and then the line on to Baia Mare is not electrified. After these last, high ISO shots we travelled on to Viseu de Sus to take photos of the Mocanita in this beautiful, snowy weather. Before the main part of the gallery, let me show you a few other photos I took of Romanian electric locomotives on previous trips as they may be interesting to you:

The class TIVc., later series 40 of the MÁV was designed for the Caransebes - Bautari - Subcetate rack-and-pinion railway. Many locomotives survived its closure, one locomotive is on display at Subcetate, by the main road, and another one is here, at the Dej freight yard depot. One locomotive was moved to Slovakia, to the Tisovec - Brezno rack railway, where originally similar (but 4-8-0 wheel arrangement) TIVb. locomotives worked. Since the TIVc. was never adopted by the ČSD and CFR never worked in Czechoslovakia the TIVc. locomotive is used with the markings of Magyar Királyi Államvasutak, or His Majesty's Hungarian State Railways. Photos of the beautiful locomotive and great high-mountain environment can be seen here .

We took this shot from the snow and ice covered meander of the Vaser. It's lucky the morning trains always have the chimny first and that the modern Swiss cars come at the end of the train. You may want to have a look at the drone photo of my friend, Loránd Gábor Nagy:

The iconic steam locomotives of the Romanian narrow-gauge forestry railways were built at Resita and Reghin based on the plans of the MÁVAG 490 . Construction started during the days of the restoration of Transylvania to the Kingdom of Hungary and went on until the 1980s. Some locomotives were later sold to Hungary, but currently only the Csömödér and Gemenc railways' locomotives are operational and the Gyöngyös locomotive called Gyöngyi is undergoing overhaul. The other locomotives are probably not going to be repaired. A few of my photos of Resita and Reghin built steam locomotives:
