Current status[edit]

The Kobrinskaya forestry railway's first line was constructed in 1946, in the area of Murashinsky District, Kirov Oblast from the village Bezbozhnik. The total length of the Kobrinskaya narrow-gauge railway at the peak of its development exceeded 150 kilometres (93 mi), of which 80 kilometres (50 mi) is currently operational. The railway operates scheduled freight services from Bezbozhnik, used for forestry tasks such as the transportation of felled logs and forestry workers. In 1992, as a result of privatization "Mayskiy timber industry enterprise", there was founded JSC "Mayskles" company.[2] In 2014, repairs are being made to the track.[3]
