Geocache Description:

The Forest Railway of Zsuzsi (Hungarian: Zsuzsi Vonat) was Hungary's first narrow-gauge railway line.

The first section of the line was opened in 1882. This 950 mm gauge railway was first used as a forestry railway, in 1922 public transportation started , the line was extended between 1924 and 1950, reaching a total length of 48 km. It was rebuilt as a 760 mm gauge railway in 1961-1962. Goods transportation was stopped in 1977 and the line was taken over by the local authority. Regular passenger transportation ceased, but a part of the line was operated as a pioneer/tourist railway until 1995, when the authority could no longer bear the costs of running. In 1996 it was taken over by a new organisation which was formed mainly by retired railwaymen. A part of the line between Debrecen and Hármashegyalja works today. Now it is maintained by Zsuzsi Kisvasút Baráti Köre (Fellowship of Zsuzsi Narrow Gauge Railway).
