Katoro Express: The first tourist train in Umag
Way back in the summer of 1971, the first tourist train in Umag was officially put into service between Umag and Katoro. The train had 34 seats, but due to high demand, it rarely carried less than 50 passengers. It consisted of four wagons, one of which had an electric motor and served as the locomotive. It ran six times a day, and the full loop from Umag to Katoro and back at 10kph took an hour and a half, stops included. Tourists, who nicknamed the train the “Katoro Express”, could ride it from April all the way to late September for just a few dinars.
