Remarks & Notes 
Oravita-Anina section is the fifth railway built on the Romanian territory, respectively the first mountain railway and, many would agree, perhaps the most beautiful. Built during the Austrian Empire, it is a unique cultural monument in Romania, as well as a great technical achievement. It was nicknamed the "Semmering of Banat", as it was built only a few years after the famous track "Semmering" in Austria. These are purely historical data, which say nothing about the exhilarating experience of actually travelling on this route. Any person fond of trains and mountain trips should take this route at least once in a lifetime. Video from the trains: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JXPY-eBN4I
