FolkestoneJack's Tracks


Posted in Banovici, Bosnia by folkestonejack on April 5, 2010

The double track narrow gauge line (760mm) at Banovici in Bosnia is home to a class 25 (0-6-0) steam locomotive and a class 83 (0-8-2) steam locomotive, used mainly for shunting operations and as back-up to the class 720 and 740 diesels which haul most freight trains here.

A derailment had occurred just outside Oskova station and we walked out to take a look. A class 83 (0-8-2) steam locomotive had been sent out with an engineering train and a number of individuals were in the process of re-railing the wagon as we arrived. After all the charters and arranged runpasts there was no doubting this was 100% real.
