Faszination railways ... shining eyes

We're in San Marino. We wanna show you the faszination railways. We both are sons of railway workers and also employed by the Austrian railways. Let us meet at the former railway tunnel. Now it is a bicycle path for tourists and inhabitants of San Marino. We can find the old railway cars, which still run a short track here.

Ferrovia Rimini–San Marino was an electrified narrow gauge railway that connected Rimini, Italy and San Marino. The line was opened in 1932 after four years of construction. It was a 32 km long, 950 mm gauge, 3000 V direct current electirified railway. The line was built by Società Anonima delle Ferrovie e Tramvie Padane, with 12 tunnels and 6 major bridges. The railway was closed in World War II and was not reopened after the war. Roads, bicycle roads and residential homes were built on the railway track.

During the war, a blue electric car was kept in a tunnel and it remained 67 years after the war. The train was restored by citizen's initiative and returned to San Marino. In 2012, 650 meters of the track was reconstructed and the train is in the country.
