I collected photos from two snow-covered trips to Slovakia. On the first trip we visited the diesel-paradise of Central-Slovakia together with Iványi Csaba ( ) and two cars. The first line we photographed was this interesting valley railway built by Czechoslovakia in 1949 to replace a 1000 mm narrow-gauge link running at the valley floor as part of a new main-line railway link from Zvolen to Sahy, that was never finished. A good long freight train would very much be welcome on this railway, but unfortunately only these 812s run here, though nowadays usually the téli Panzerkampfwagen-design special livery railcar appears here.
