Welcome to the Croatian Railway Preservation Society website!

Our mission is to preserve and present to the general public the unique and interesting history of the railways of Croatia, from the days of Yugoslavia to the present day Republic of Croatia.

This project, based in Istria, will provide a major visitor attraction and an asset to the local community, thus helping to develop both tourism and economic growth. It will consist of a museum and an operating standard gauge heritage railway line called the "Istrian Railway".

We plan to acquire and restore to full working condition a fleet of historical steam and diesel locomotives, as well as passenger coaches, for use on the heritage line.

If you would like to know more about exciting and ambitious project, then please contact us at:

You can also check out our Facebook page for further information and videos related to the project @ Croatian Railway Preservation Society.

We look forward to hearing from you.
