These steam engines are great, and the trip from Nuremberg to Istanbul is a wonderful idea. Are there plans to make it a permanent attraction or is it a single celebrative event? Also, are there more steam engines in Serbia operating for turistic purposes on a regular basis?

This journey was organized by an agency from Germany. Unfortunately I can't understand German so I can't say what tours are they planning for this year. Anyway here's their website: http://www.bahntouristik.de/ige/cms/index.php

As for Serbia, there is a narrow gauge line that operates steam trains: http://www.zeleznicesrbije.com/activ...ke_osmice.html

I will select pictures from that ride and present them here. Serbian Railways also organize one day trips across the country with steam engines wich usually involves some local festival with local music, cuisine and etc. However they haven't published the timetable for this year yet.

I'm afraid I don't quite understand your question. If you're thinking about regular passenger service then yes, train from Belgrade leaves for Istanbul every day at 07:50. If you're thinking about steam trains, then no, there is no such a train.

Sorry for the big pictures but I think it would be a waste to resize them.

Serbian Railways in the summer months organize one day trips with a train that includes old style coaches and of course the steam locomotive.

At the Port of Belgrade:
