Borzhavski narrow-gauge railway

Borzhavski narrow-gauge railway

Borzhavski narrow-gauge railway on a number of features is the landmark of Transcarpathia. Built in 1908, today it is one of the few existing roads of this type. Initially, narrow-gauge railway was built for the needs of the local timber industry, and later still established passenger route Vinogradovo - Khmelnik - Irshava 44 km (first route was limited to the second and third paragraphs). Another feature that distinguishes Borzhavski narrow-gauge railway from other railroads, is the use of non-electrical and mechanical hardware only (semaphores, turnouts, and so on. D.).

During its existence, during the First and Second World War Borzhavski narrow-gauge railway was in the possession of Czechoslovakia and Hungary. In the 70s of the last century passenger traffic began to noticeably reduce, and in the 80`s - totally eliminated. However, the efforts of local residents and local authorities in the early 90`s the train again started to carry passengers.

As of today, there is only one small section of the narrow-gauge railway, which has been preserved, but is not in use, between Irshava and Priborzhavskim. However, this does not prevent the access of tourists who come here specifically to look at the unique railway and visit in the heart of Transcarpathia.
