Am ajuns in Maramures, Viseul de Sus – Mocanita!

Mocanita steam train.

August, varf de sezon.

The peak of tourism season, August.

Agitatie mare dar si suparare la fel de mare

(Great agitation but also great anger)

Datorita numarului foarte mare de vizitatori, toate trenurile trase de locomotivele cu abur nu mai au locuri disponibile pentru turisti si administratorii incearca sa ii linisteasca, afirmand ca vor aduce si locomotive diesel ca sa suplimenteze numarul de trenuri.

Due to a large number of visitors, all trains pulled by steam locomotives no longer have seats available for tourists, and administrators are trying to reassure them, saying they will also bring diesel locomotives to supplement the number of trains

A fost doar inceputul …. (It was just the beginning …..)

Un grup de cetateni nemti (o doamna vorbea romaneste destul de bine) au inceput sa isi exprime nemultumirea in fata casei de bilete afirmand ca au venit special pana in Romania impreuna cu familia si cu prietenii sa le prezinte Mocanita, unicat.

A group of German citizens (a lady who spoke Romanian quite well) began to express their dissatisfaction in front of the ticket office stating that they came especially to Romania with family and friends to present Mocanita, unique.

Puteau sa mearga in Elvetia sa se plimbe cu trenuletele echipate cu locomotive diesel.

They could go to Switzerland to ride trains equipped with diesel locomotives.

Administratorii permit camparea in incinta garii, contra cost.

Atrag atentia faptului ca pregatirea locomotivelor cu abur incepe la orele 03.00 dimineata iar primele curse incep la orele 08.00.

I draw your attention to the fact that the preparation of the steam locomotives starts at 03.00 in the morning and the first trips start at 08.00.

Aceasta locatie este ideala doar pentru campare pentru 1 singura noapte, dupa vizitarea traseului Mocanitei sa plecati catre alta destinatie.

This location is ideal only for camping for 1 night, after visiting the Mocanita route to go to another destination.

Se ofera surse de energie electrica pentru conectarea autorulotei, cosuri de gunoi si apa potabila.

It offers sources of electricity for connecting the caravan, trash cans, and drinking water.

La toaleta exista lichid de curatat colacul, ca la parcurile de distractie din Germania.

Va recomand sa alegeti locurile din ultimul vagon datorita faptului ca puteti avea un camp vizual mult mai mare.

I recommend you, choose the seats in the last car due to the fact that you can have a much larger landscape view.

Pe traseu mocanita opreste intr-o gara rustica si acolo se serveste masa.

Nu imi mai amintesc daca puteti cumpara bilete cu sau fara masa inclusa in pret, noi am achizionat biletul standard si am beneficiat de masa calda.

Un alt pont, cand mocanita opreste la ultima statie pentru debarcarea pasagerilor, discutati cu impegatul de miscare sa va permita sa continuati calatoria pana la locatia unde se realizeaza manevrele de schimbare a pozitiei locomotivei.

Another tip, when the Mocanita steam train stops at the last station for disembarking passengers, please approache the company’s employee to allow you to continue the journey to the location where the maneuvers to change the position of the locomotive are performed.

Este foarte interesant pentru copii sa observe pregatirea locomotivei pentru urmatoare deplasare, catre statia de baza Viseul de Sus.

It is very interesting for children to observe the steam locomotive preparation for the next trips, to the Viseul de Sus base station.

Deserventii locomotivelor sunt foarte prietenosi cu turistii si acestia au avut amabilitatea sa raspunda la toate intrebarile tehnice a unui pusti de 12 ani.

The locomotive’ operators are very friendly with the tourists and they were kind enough to answer all the technical questions of a 12-year-old kid.

Am petrecut 30 de minute in compania lor si a fost o adevarata scolarizare pentru pitici.

I spent 30 minutes in their company and it was a real school for the kids.

Va recomand sa descoperiti aceasta bijuterie traditionala romaneasca Mocanita!

I recommend you to discover this traditional aRomanian jewel steam train Mocanita!

Aceasta destinatie turistica face parte din categoria “revenim cu prima ocazie”
