A 'Ffestiniog Travel' tour of the trains and trams of Romania took us by train from Sibiu to Iasi via Timisoara, Arad, and Oradea in, to us, old-fashioned compartment coaches, most of which had seen much better days. The trains were only two or three loco-hauled carriages travelling at a sedate pace, no buffet and not much in facilities, very reminiscent of Indian railways. The trams were a mixture of second-hand european and locally-built vehicles, The food and hotels were excellent ! It was an amazing holiday and totally recommended.
