For technology and tradition enthusiasts, Romfilatelia introduces into circulation the postage stamp issue Locomotives, Steam Trains. The postage stamps of the issue illustrate some of the representative Mocanitasteam trains of Romania. Famous, both in the country and abroad, the Mocanitasteam train is a narrow-gauge train, driven by a steam locomotive. It runs in the mountain regions, in the past ensuring the transport of goods and, in particular, of timber. The name of this picturesque means of transport is due to the Mocani, as the local people from the Apuseni Mountains are called. The narrow railway crossing this area was established between 1910-1912.
