New passenger carriage completed within the Interreg "Industrial heritage" project
In October 2018, a new passenger carriage was completed in Baloži peat museum railway. The carriage has been designed and built according to historical pictures and materials regarding narrow gauge passenger carriages built in 1930-ties and 1940-ties, and it includes two-in-one design features of closed and open-sided passenger carriage. Thus in the summer heat the carriage can be enjoyed in it's open form, presenting great views on the scenery around, but still with roof to cover from rain, and in the colder spring-autumn season the carriage can be used as a usual carriage with side panels installed.
