Borzhava Bike-Railcar Tours start on 27.12.2021 in Pryborzhavske

On 27.12.2021 in Pryborzhavske, Khust region, Transcarpathia start Borzhava Bike-Railcar Tours in order to develop Borzhava Narrow-Gauge Railway through the creation and promotion of a new tourist attraction.

The model of a bike-railcar was developed and made by Transcarpathian "Zeykan Forge". It took only two months from the idea to the prototype. At the first stage such tourist bike-railcars are planned to be launched from Pryborzhavske to Bilky and in the future to Irshava.

About Borzhava Narrow-Gauge Railway

Borzhava Narrow-Gauge Railway consists of five sections it was put into operation gradually from 1908 to 1911. Its main function was to transport timber from Borzhava mountain meadow to Transcarpathian lowlands.

The railway was private until 1923 and used from the beginning for passenger traffic. The length of the track used to be 123 km some of which was completed after Second World War but a number of sections have already been dismantled so there is only 44 km left for passenger traffic. Track width is 750 mm (against 1520 mm of the usual Ukrainian track).

In most sections of Borzhava Narrow-Gauge Railway passenger services ceased in the mid-1980s and freight traffic began to decline in the mid-1990s as the enterprises servicing the narrow-gauge railway were closed.

In 2017 was an attempt to create tourist attraction on Borzhava Narrow Gauge Railway by Steam Train GR-280 with railcars for railways tours but due to situation GR-280 steam locomotive belongs to Haivoron Depot it was returned back to Haivoron, Holovanivsk Raion, Kirovohrad Oblast. Without locomotive the the initiative of tourist train creating was stopped till now.

Later GR-280 steam locomotive become the leading attraction of Haivoron Express Tourist Train which started operation in 2021.
