The forest railway is a collection of movables of one-time Čiernovážska Forest Railway, whose construction started in 1913, upon a permission of Hungarian State Forest Authority in Liptovský Hrádok and was carried out by Magyar Belga company. It was built in three stages and completed in 1940. It transported not only goods but also passangers ( permitted by authorities in 1932). It used to be the longest forest railway in Slovakia, with its track leading from Liptovský Hrádok via Liptovská Teplička to Zátureň pod Kráľovou Hoľou. However, due to economic reasons, it was closed on 31st December 1971. Despite the pressure of some activists, regional authorities had not done much to try to save the railway in its original form.
The only remnant is 11,6 km passage from Liptovský Hrádok to Svarín, with 30 % missing top parts, left to decay by ravages of time.
