The Borshava Narrow Gauge Railway (Боржавська вузькоколійна залізниця) is one of just three remaining 750mm gauge passenger-carrying railways in Ukraine in 2017, this example operating the modest distance of approximately 20 kilometres between Vynohradiv and Kmil'nyk in the Zakarpattia Oblast region. Track, in the form of a 'Y', is extant between Vynohradiv, Irshava and Beregove, with the junction station at Kmil'nyk. However, the only services that currently remain from a once extensive passenger and freight timetable on the former 123 kilometre Transcarpathian Railway are the thrice-weekly four trains per day passenger services between Vynohradiv andKmil'nyk, essentially on the Sunday, Monday and Thursday market days. The railway's workshop, motive power depot and carriage sheds are located at Beregove, which no longer has a regular service, but locomotives and stock have to be transferred over the 22-kilometre line to the Kmil'nyk country junction station, where redundant coaching stock is gradually rotting away in the former goods sidings, and now the end of the line for passenger services from Vynohradiv.

 

The Vynohradiv market is truly cosmopolitan in nature with Ukrainian, Hungarian, Slovakian and Romanians, among others, intermingling around the large open-air market ground, with the temporary market stalls set up around and even on the railway. In fact for the locomotive to round its two carriages stall holders have to move their products, only quickly to return them to their closely guarded patch of ground. It is little wonder that residents and visitors to the region are so diverse, with its chequered history, under the control of Hungary, Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union at various periods during the 20th century. In this photo, the 06:10 service 6603 from Kmil'nyk, with Bo-Bo diesel-electric Tu2-034, has just arrived at Vynohradiv as market stall holders and customers go about their early morning business on Sunday 23rd April 2017. This was the only operational locomotive on the line at this time, although another Tu2 had been lifted from its bogies and was under repair at the Beregove workshop.

 

The following website by a Ukrainian national (in English) is of great interest and describes the line's history very well, also providing a map of the original system - a professionally made production:

Sunday Market - Experimental image playing with desaturaton then painting in colour.

I really loved the experience. I always wanted to visit this market, to pick up some books and also for some street shots. I am glad I did it :)
