From Belgrad to Dubrovnik and Zelenika, on 760 mm narrow-gauge track, from 1925 to 1974, through tunnels, over the bridges and through mountain gorges, ran famous train “Cira”, leaving behind itself remarkable smell of steam locomotive smoke…
We have renewed this part of railway, which represents unique construction work, on the route from station Sargan Vitasi to Mokra Gora, and once again echoes the sound of the wagon and cheerful murmur of tourists on the train on famous “Sargan eight”.
From “Mokra gora” to “Sargan Vitasi” you will pass through 22 tunnels,over five bridges,and overcome the altitude difference of 300 meters, and all that on a total distance of 15,440 meters.
During your ride you will have an opportunity to see from one of five observation platforms all the beauty and richness of the nature of this region.

You enjoyed a nice narrow-gauge train journey from Belgrad to Dubrovnik and Zelenika, I know it because I had an experience, it was a narrow-gauge train journey from Shiliguri to Darjeeling (West Bengal - India). Beautiful recording and maintained the frame vertically. Well composition, sharpness and POV.
with deep regards and enjoy a nice weekend.

Interesantan tekst o ciri sa marsrutom opisa puta ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan masinovodja i uski kolosek.
Dobar rad sa planom puta legendarne sarganske osmice.
Treba videti i doziveti ...
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.

Belle prise de vue de cette machine ferroviaire et de son conducteur.Le contraste jaune vert vert donne la bonne touche de contraste à cette image.
