Initially, Samoborček was projected as cargo train, to connect Samobor companies with growing Zagreb industry and market because the only connection was horse omnibus. Railway was public company until end of second war, when it was nationalized and became "Gradska željeznica Zagreb-Samobor" ("Zagreb-Samobor City Railway"). Eventually, the railway was neglected in favor of truck and bus traffic and interrupted operation in 1979. All infrastructure was abandoned and dismantled.
The Samoborček railway consisted of a single-tracked narrow-gauge line operating on the so-called Bosnian gauge at 760 mm (2 ft 5 15⁄16 in). Initially the line had a length of 19 kilometres (12 miles), from Zagreb to Samobor via Podsused; in the 1950s the track was extended some additional kilometres to Bregana and military overhaul workshops in what is today Slovenia.
Until the 1950s there were various steam engine driven compositions. Average speed was 15 to 20 km/h (10 - 12 mph). From the 1950s until end of operation DMU aluminium compositions, officially called DEV and nicknamed "Srebrna strijela" ("Silver arrow") took over, with max speed of 50 km/h (30 mph).
Although all tracks were removed, a large part of other railway infrastructure (embankments, bridges) survives today, usually without function. Most of railway stations and embankments survived, mostly they were converted into shops, restaurants and warehouses. A steam locomotive which once operated the line is on permanent display in Samobor.
