Slightly off the rails


Trains hold a fascination for small boys of all ages. The Transylvania Model Railway Society demonstrated train and trackside modeling at the main station in Cluj. Visitors had their tickets punched to remind them of the good old days. More nostalgia was available in a collection of railway travel documents dating back more than 100 years. Most of the excitement was reserved for the trains. Would they run on time? Would they run at all? Eventually they did, keeping to a Romanian pattern of stop, start and stop again just for authenticity. I searched in vain for a mischevious Count Dracula figure, perhaps he was hiding in a tunnel waiting for nightfall.
