The railway with a gauge of 760 mm was an important part of the former narrow gauge main line from Sarajevo to Belgrade and closed in 1974. Between 1999 and 2003 the section over the Šargan pass was rebuilt by the Serbian Ministry of Tourism and the Yugoslav state railway JŽ, now the Serbian railways, Železnice Srbije, with great help of Emir Kusturica, famous film director, whose town Drvengrad was built near Šargan Eight station on Mokra Gora.
