  • Motorail linking 2 valleys between Most na Soci and Bohinska Bistrica in 2 directions. We going through a big tunnel more than 6 km which shortens the trip. 30' instead of 1 h 30 by the opportunity to get on board with bicycles also route. Attention well arrive 1/2 hour before the train's departure time because only 15 cars can take place.

  • Late may, beautiful day of sunshine. Slept nearby, we introduce ourselves on time to Nova Gorica railway station on Sunday morning. "Boarding" operations are conducted with efficiency and courtesy and are immediately on our place in the last car. The staff in period costume, steam puffing from the locomotive, the coaches still with its original furnishings and wall map with the Austro-Hungarian Empire predispose us to that brief time travel that will be our day. A couple of long boos: here we go! Two and a half hours in a Green Valley and a river blue, nature at its best. Windows closed otherwise the smoke and sparks entering the compartment. The sparks are seen right when you walk through the galleries, one of which is several kilometers long. You get to Bled. We divide into groups for the visit to the castle that is interesting but very confusing: the groups cross paths in the path and the noise prevents full comprehension of the explanations of willing guides. Worse followed. Having booked the tour we are entitled to lunch at the restaurant. Unfortunately the order maintained up to that juncture, dissolves and the road up to the restaurant and accommodation in tables are a torture, which continues with the length of the dilated lunch. After lunch, acceptable, we have some spare time we use for a restorative coffee and paused. Then we start again. Another two hours, until hot enough. Then, dulcis in fundo, four hours in Panda up in Modena! Recommend after the experience to book only the train roundtrip and get a nice tour of the beautiful Lake Bled. Beautiful experience anyway.

  • We experienced this great adventure on a warm Sunday in May and were really pleased. Right from the start you are catapulted to early 1900 from the beautiful historic wooden wagons and locomotive train; even the conductor, musicians and other figures are in period costume and greet passengers with a kindness and availability. On the train there is a splendid carriage bar where you can make a small breakfast or eat a snack, and the service of the trip includes the ability to shoot two postcards with the special postmark of the train. The trip takes a couple of hours and includes an overnight stop in Most na Soči. along the road passes through several tunnels (the longest is the famous Gallery of ben 6327 metre Podbrdo, an Alpine tunnel) and spectacular views thanks to its beautiful rivers like the soča and the Sava. Loved the view of the bridge of Solkan, 85 meters of stone arch! The helper peasant dress visit various coaches providing passengers cheese and grappa and singing along with the musicians on traditional melodies, making the experience truly enjoyable. Several agencies offer this tour accompanied by a package including visit to Bled Castle and its Museum and lunch at restaurant. Having tried this solution I would recommend booking only the return trip by steam train and organize yourself for the day in Bled!
