Paid 10 lei to a guy at the entrance and headed in. Plenty of rusting steam engines to see and there is a splendid roundhouse. On approaching this, one of the many people seemingly floating around doing nothing started shouting at us. We retreated from...More

Worth finding even if you have little interest in railway engines - very atmospheric and no charge! I think the council are missing a trick by not promoting this elephants graveyard

If you are a trains fan you will like it. Otherwise there was no one who could tell anything about the engines, there is no post about the exhibitions - at least a small story - this train was in service between 1900 till 1950.
