History[edit]

The first railway line on Romania's present-day territory was opened on August 20, 1854,[2] and ran between Oraviţa in Banat and Baziaş, a port on the Danube. The line, which had a length of 62.5 km, was used solely for the transportation of coal. From January 12, 1855, the line was operated by Imperial Royal Privileged Austrian State Railway Company, the Banat province being at that time part of the Austrian Empire. After several improvements in the following months, the line was opened to passenger traffic from November 1, 1856.
