Bratislava Spin Day Jan 2019

obb-2016-015-devinska-310119

2016 015 pushes out of Devinska Nove Vez with the 0716 Vienna – Bratislava

zssk-240136-devinksa-310119

The train back was of far higher quality as 240136 roared in on the 0722 Kuty – Bratislava. Whilst the first coach is in true ZSSK Dbtmee suburban stock condition, the middle two are those that are now being refurbished with plastic seats, plug sockets and the like.

zssk-381002-bratislava-310119

The fleet of two Skoda 381’s still give ZSSK reliability issues, 381002 departs ECS for the yard after working the 1022 Kuty – Bratislava

zssk-383105-bratislava-310119

383105 brings the 0607 Kosice – Bratislava in

ZSSK-350014-BA-310119

With Gorilla power in 350014 on the 0711 Kosice – Wien IC right behind it. This train now reverses and continues via Petzralka and Kitsee to Wien Hbf with a ZSSK Vectron rather than continuing as a regular Bratislava – Wien REX service as per previous years.

zssk-240001-devinska-310119

A very short blast of afternoon sun at Devinska where a recently outshopped 240001 was awaiting the road south. Long term resident bank engine 751203 had been replaced with 751185 which is unfortunately just as silenced.

lte-45148-cd-242218-bratislava

‘45148’ trundles light through Bratislava and is one of the many pretend Bulgarian registered and numbered locos that are ex-CD 242s. This one is the former 242218 leased to LTE by ZOS Zvolen. Info on the four actual Bulgarian locos that operate in CZ/SK can be found over here in the Bulgarian section of the site

zssk-240089-brat-310119

I think this was my first Bratislava visit with all the hauled push-pull sets doing what they were supposed to with 263s and 381s. However evidently some rancid trunk had blown up during the day as 240089 appeared for the 1809 Bratislava – Nove Zamky vice the booked cart.
