Weekend Steam: Romania


From the heritage series this is a concise movie about one of the almost gone jobs in Eastern Europe: manual loading mocanita wagon. In Romania the person performing this job is called "tapinar". 
Today the wagons are loaded mechanical and this manual activity is almost gone. The only place still to find this old tradition is the CFF Viseu de Sus forestry narrow gauge line in Maramures, Romania.
