Baltic Peat Producers Forum'17 excursions

Every year in september, peat industry companies from Baltic states and abroad meet together in Baltic Peat Producers Forum (BPPF), which took place this year between 13rd and 15th of September, in Riga, Latvia. Ice-breaker party for the forum took place in the evening of 13rd September in Baloži, in SIA "Pindstrup Latvia" wood fibre factory, which is just besides our railway, thus we were honored to give excursion to all participants of the ice-breaker party on our railway. We showed to the visitors how slowly but steadily we are progressing towards a complete museum railway, restoring railway tracks, rolling stock and other objects with enthusiast efforts to create an interesting object for the peat industry as well.

We welcomed visitors in the warmth and authentic soviet-era atmosphere in the canteen carriage, and gave a tour with a narrow gauge train on the whole restored railway line (up to day 1,1 km, including last parts finished just recently).

During the excursion we received a lot of positive feedback and good wishes for future works, and we also hope that among the visitors we will find new supporters for our project!

  

Excursion was organized by the society "Bānīša Draugu klubs" in cooperation with Latvian Peat association, general sponsor of the forum and main supporter of Baloži peat museum railway - SIA "Pindstrup Latvia".
