Friends of Borzhava Narrow Gauge Railway have appealed to the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration and the Ukrzaliznytsya PJSC.
The text of the appeal was posted today in social networks. The activists were encouraged to do this by the negative experience of implementing this year’s project "Historical Train at Borzhava Narrow Gauge Railway 2017". Its goal and the reasons for failure are clearly set out in the statement.
In particular, since the "Social Movement "Friends of the Borzhava Narrow Gauge Railway", in conjunction with the NGO "Borzhava Initiative", has been successfully implementing trourism railway projects in recent years, when the bills for the services provided by the Ukrzaliznytsya were fully paid, it is very strange that the project "Historical Train on Borzhava Narrow Gauge Railway 2017" was implemented without any economic feasibility study and analysis of tourist flows". And this is just one of a number of remarks.
That is why the authors of the statement appeal to the abovementioned addressees to take their opinion into account when continuing the project "Historical Train on Borzhava Narrow Gauge railway 2017", and to pay attention to the uninterrupted functioning of the Borzhava Narrow Gauge Railway, both for residents of the region and for guests.
