07 July 2012 - Agnita-Beneşti sector maintenance - 5 participants

Agenda: Although we planned to install the last sheets of tin on the side of the carriage shed, the intense sun and the 38 degrees changed our plans, forcing us to search shade. Thus, we put back fishplates, punched in rail spikes and cleared shrubs on about 250 meters from the Bârghiș swamp towards Benești, increasing the running length of track to 1.5 miles.

Extras: Before reaching Agnita we stopped at Cornățel to give interviews and be filmed pedalling on the velo-draisine. Three national TV channels (Antena 1, ProTV and B1 TV) each made a report on our novel attraction, following its appearence in the Sibiu County Tourism Agency's newsletter. The reports were broadcasted the same day, at the mid-day, evening and night news.
