Latest update to the Bulgarian Gen area – Class 07 workings for the December 2016 Timetable
I have now updated the 07 page with what I believe to be the current state of 07 workings
Basically, bad news….!
- Plovdiv – Kapikule turn – as advertised (if not expected) the overheads are now live all the way to Turkey. Plovdiv lose all regular 07 work as the Istanbul is now through electric. Obviously they’ve upped the Plovdiv-Svilengrad service as well, and there are a number of hauled services again now during the day.
- The Bucharest – Sofia train pair does not run (!!) in 2016 timetable apart from summer dates advertised as June to September. Hopefully this is factually correct, times would allow a CFR loco. Outside of these dates a CFR Desiro operates between Bucharest and Ruse only. #PROGRESS!!!
- 1470/1471 presumed, no info available
- Dobrich and Silistra turns retained. Both now booked to contain modern sleeping cars so require EH loco. The Varna turn is retimed from the afternoon to evening departure and now only goes to Dobrich.
