Recreational ride on board of Mocanita narrow-gauge train on winter holidays

The narrow-gauge train “Mocanita” from Suceava commune of Moldovita will run again during the winter holidays season, on the only such rail still functional in Bucovina. The programme under which it is run is called “Recreational rides with ‘Hutulca’ narrow-gauge train”. The vintage train will start its journey from behind Oana Hotel in Moldovita, respectively from Argel – Zigreva and will run every day from December 26 and up to January 6, 2013. According to representatives administering “Mocanita”, the route follows Moldovita creek , crossing a picturesque zone, typical of Bucovina, with houses in the old style, with haystacks in the field, and the rail line ends in a clearing at the foot of a fir tree forest, where the organizers offer a trip in horse drawn sleighs, with tasseled bridles, and a Bucovina traditional meal. Price of a journey of 21 kilometers is 20 lei for adults and 10 lei for children between 6 and 16 years old (1 euro = 4.47 lei). The vintage train is running due to the investment made by Austrian businessman Georg Hocevar, administrator of SC Calea Ferata ingusta SRL Brad, who restored “Mocanita” in 2005, after a period of over ten years when it was not functional.
