A trip on the Mocăniţa railway from Viseu de Sus​ is unique, as the steam train is the last remaining forestry train in Europe. The Vaser Valley railway was built back in 1932 and forestry trains were primarily used to transport the harvested wood. Since 2000, tourists also have been able to observe the Maramures mountains with its pristine forests and fast-flowing rivers from the vintage steam train.

As the train arrives at Paltin station, passengers have some free time to explore the scenic surroundings and enjoy a picnic. On the way back to Viseu de Sus the conductor may even stop for a mushroom break if in a season. Regular tours run from spring to late autumn.
