The Altsevo peat railway emerged in the 1962s in the area Tonshayevsky District, from the village Pizhma to the swamp "Altsovsky Moss". The railway was built for hauling peat and workers and operates year-round with several pairs of trains a day. A peat briquette factory was built and put into operation in 2005.[1]
