Episode 1: Trip up the line

This was the first day of the trip, which was on Sunday the 1st of June, and there is normally no line work (logging or tourist train) on Sunday so we should have had the line to ourselves. However, it was an election day and the company ran a rail car to bring people down to Viseu de Sus to vote. The loco we used was Elvetia (=Switzerland) the working Resita 0-8-0T owned by the Swiss preservation group.

The scenery gets more attractive and we reach Cozia (km 18.6), Novicior (km 20.6). Just before Botizu (km 26.2) are 3 tunnels which we see from the train.
