MONUMENT
The Sibiu - Agnita - Sighișoara narrow gauge railway, including its Cornățel - Vurpăr branch, is historically listed as a whole, class B, code SB-II-a-B-20923 in the List of Historic Monuments.
 

Welcome to the Sibiu-Agnita Railway - a narrow gauge railway that winds through the southern hills of Transylvania and among numerous fortified Saxon churches. It crosses a Natura 2000 natural reserve, scattered with abundant wildlife and precious flora, in a peaceful rural landscape guarded by the snowcapped Carpathian mountains.

Started 13 years ago from the idea of a big-hearted mayor, the support of an eccentric Englishman and the perseverence of a dreaming student, the Sibiu-Agnita Railway project grew steadily every year, thousands of volunteers and supporters laying a foundation onto which the SAR can grow harmoniously and sustainably, and with it, so can the Hârtibaciu valley.

The tireless dedication, devotion and enthusiasm of the SAR volunteers was brought to the attention of His Royal Highness Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, passionate supporter of the conservation of patrimony and the sustainable development through tourism of Transylvania. In a recent letter addressed to the SAR volunteers, His Royal Highness expresses his admiration for our labor and congratulates us for our heroic efforts, noting how fortunate we are that many of the buildings and original locomotives survive and expressing his wish to travel on the Sibiu-Agnita railway during his next visit to Romania.

The support of His Royal Highness honours and encourages us, while also motivating us in our efforts to preserve and restore the patrimony of the Sibiu - Agnita railway, both the line and buildings, as well as the locomotives and carriages that ran through the Hârtibaciu valley.

Currently the railway is in the hands of the Prietenii Mocăniței association and is being gradually restored by volunteers. Many years of neglect and the stripping of all rolling stock pose a great challenge to the volunteers, and thus help of any kind is very welcome. Whether you like to volunteer, respond to our appeals, purchase our products or simply have a ride on our trains and draisines, any help is appreciated.
