Geocache Description:


Par Bānīti

20. gs. sākumā Vidzemes pievedceļu sabiedrība vietējā transporta vajadzībām uzbūvēja šaursliežu dzelzceļa līniju Stukmaņi (Pļaviņas) - Gulbene - Alūksne - Valka. No tās saglabājies un joprojām tiek izmantots 33 km garš dzelzceļa posms Gulbene - Alūksne jeb Gulbenes - Alūksnes šaursliežu dzelzceļš, ko vietējie iedzīvotāji dēvē par Bānīti.

Kopš 1998. gada Gulbenes - Alūksnes šaursliežu dzelzceļš, tajā skaitā sliežu ceļi, ritošais sastāvs, inženierbūves, aprīkojums un dzelzceļa ēkas ir valsts nozīmes vēstures piemineklis.

Bānītis, būdams Eiropas tūrisma un muzejdzelzceļu federācijas (FEDECRAIL) dalībnieks, no citiem (vairākiem simtiem) Eiropas muzejdzelzceļu atšķiras ar to, ka joprojām ikdienā pārvadā pasažierus.

Bānītis ir iecienīts tūrisma objekts, kas piesaista apmeklētāju interesi ne tikai kā senās dzelzceļa tehnikas liecība, bet arī kā atraktīvs transporta līdzeklis ceļojumam pa Vidzemes gleznaino apkārtni.

Bānīša apsaimniekotāji sadarbībā ar pašvaldībām un dzelzceļa entuziastiem regulāri rīko dažādus pasākumus, galvenais no kuriem ir gadskārtējie Bānīša svētki.

 

The Vidzeme Banitis or Gulbene - Aluksne railway is the last operational narrow gauge railway in the Baltics.

The small railway with regular passenger traffic between two district centres has become a much loved tourist destination, attracting visitors on account of its historical rolling-stock and infrastructure, as well as its heritage value and frequent entertainment activities.

Welcome to Gulbene - Aluksne railway and enjoy the Special Events - Annual Narrow Gauge Railway Festival on the first Saturday of September, as well as Saint Martin’s Day, Christmas, and Easter trips on the board of narrow gauge train!

During visit we recommend also sightseeing in vicinity of Gulbene - Aluksne railway. The small railway is friendly also for those who are riding a bicycle!
