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

Difficult to find by car. Absolutely no signs. Sat nav got us close but then trial and error did the rest. Not really a museum because the only info is what is on the trains but some huge old engines, a snow plough, a crane...More

After being in the old town for a few days we were looking for something else to do, involving a walk. This attraction was perfect as it involved a decent walk, leaving the main square with GPS in hand, it was quite easy as the...More

This was a bit difficult to find, although following the advice at the bottom of this page was a big help (using Google Maps to find the roundhouse). It was very cold and snowy when we visited, so we only stayed about an hour, but...More

We were really glad we made it to the 'museum' (not really a museum, but a collection of engines) after we missed the turning on Dorobantilor at our first attempt. Once you find the turning, it is easy to get to. We visited with our...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.
