HISTORIC
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.
 

Due to severe administration and preservation deficiencies, we request that the ownership of the Sibiu-Agnita narrow gauge railway, together with its Cornatel-Vurpar branch, be transferred from that of the Romanian State, administered by the Railway Assests Management Company, to that of the Sibiu County Council or any other local administration entity. The transfer will include commitments which will guarantee that the assets will be treated as a railway, which will be preserved and restored given its status as historic monument. Last but not least, the development of the railway by means of tourism and culture will be initiated and supported. And for this we require your help.

Sign the petition, save the Sibiu - Agnita Railway!

Welcome to the Sibiu-Agnita Railway - a narrow gauge railway running 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.

Currently the railway is in the hands of local authorities 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, thus any help is welcomed. Whether you like to volunteer, respond to their appeals, purchase their products or simply have a ride on their draisines, any help is appreciated.

We are grateful for their help:
