For many years, the Borsha Vallay Rauilway saw its first steam train on August 4th, 2017. The tour was a great success and well covered by local broadcast stations and newspapers.

Unfortunately there were some protests in Gaiworon, where the loco was borrowed from, and some sabotage on the Beregowo line on August 5th. The messenger of this news faced a hate mail from someone abroad. Strange behavior, lies and rumours making the round, just why they think no-one deserves success with a project to save a railway which is not their personal baby.

Here some press releases:
