A long-abandoned railway line was laid to the military base, which is located in Buzuluksky Bor. The railway begins in the village of Koltubanovsky. This is an offshoot of the Kinel – Orenburg railway. The military base was closed and the railway has been abandoned in 2012.
That railway passes through the abandoned pioneer camp “Victory”.
In some places, that railway passes the border between the Samara and Orenburg regions in Russia.
Buzuluksky Bor National Park encompasses the Buzuluk Pine Forest, which is the largest grove of isolated high pine trees in the world. It is surrounded by steppes on the East European Plain east of the Volga River and west of the foothills running up to the southern Urals. This makes it an important habitat for scientific study and is the site of the earliest forest management area in Russia. It is about 70 miles east from the city of Samara, Russia, and 15 km north of the town of Buzuluk, Orenburg Oblast.
