Class 87s in Bulgaria   4 comments

***UPDATE OCTOBER 2017*** Still ongoing – the basics are in place as linked below. I’m working through this and the more general BG section, so some of the content may come and go whilst I play around. This is definitely not a rapid project!

Also, there is a BG-GEN section available for non-seven Bulgarian Goodness. Should be in the list across the top of the site before the actual content!

  4. Dear Admin

    in June I could observe the BDZ 07 111 (BG-BDZPP 92 52 0007 111-4) on the following train services:

    05.06.2017 2637, 28203, 28204, 2636, 20955
    06.06.2017 28204, 2636, 20955
    The 20950 probably runs with BDZ 07 as well.
    I have postet some train compositions on

    The 460/461 train services was hauled by a CFR 65 loco Bucuresti – Ruse.

    I could also spot BDZ 07 locos with freight trains:

    05.06.2017 09:57 Valchi Dol heading for Dobrich, destination unknown (seen from 28203)
    05.06.2017 16:52 Poveljanovo heading for Dobrich or Sindel, destination unknown (seen from 28204)
    06.06.2017 17:03 Devnja with a loco on each end: a BDZ 07 heading for Dobrich and a BDZ 55 heading for Poveljanovo, destination unknown (seen from 28204)

    Thank you very much for providing loco workings on your webpage. I hope this information will help you.

    Kind regards
