This track of length 3 km, connected sawmill in Vyhoda to Tartak in the Old Mizun in 1890. So narrow-gauge railway line combined Boykivshchyna with timber metropolis of Austria-Hungary. Network of narrow railways became indispensable in harvesting, processing and marketing of timber. It widened picturesque Gorgan, becoming a witness of the greatness of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, vicissitudes of war and guerrilla adventures, absorbing flavor of local people's life and the sweat of hard working woodcutter. Having reached the greatest extent and prosperity in the Soviet era, it began gradually to decline till the end of the last century, suffering from nature and from man.
