|The Hotel Train "Carpatia Express"|
The "Carpatia Express" provides unique accommodation for railway enthusiasts and those who are looking for an unusual experience. The train is positioned next to the CFF railway station in Viseu de Sus. The train consists of a steam locomotive built in Romania, two sleeping cars and a dining car of the former East German Railway.
The dining car of the "Carpatia Express" is also open for guests without accommodation in the hotel train. An early reservation is necessary..
The memorial locomotive
At the front of the "Carpatia Express" can be found a historic steam locomotive built at the Romanian factory in Resita. It is a later development of the German "2-10-0 standard freight locomotive" Class 150 of the former "German State Railway" (Deutsche Reichsbahn). After the end of World War II the Resita Factory built 282 locomotives for the Romanian State Railway (CFR). This engine is therefore not just an impressive jewel in the hotel train crown; Resita 150.216 is also a piece of European railway history!
