Worth finding even if you have little interest in railway engines - very atmospheric and no charge! I think the council are missing a trick by not promoting this elephants graveyard

If you are a trains fan you will like it. Otherwise there was no one who could tell anything about the engines, there is no post about the exhibitions - at least a small story - this train was in service between 1900 till 1950.

I was looking for places that are less touristic, let's say, for this visit in Sibiu. SO I found this outdoor museum, and it was a very nice experience. Would be great to have some more details about the steam engines displayed there, but it...More
