From Construction Europe magazine:

More EBRD backing for Serb railways

The European Bank for Reconstruction & Development (EBRD) is supporting further modernisation of rail operations in Serbia with a € 100 million sovereign guaranteed loan to the Serbian state-owned railway company, Zeleznice Srbije.

The finance will be used for the upgrading of Corridor X rail and the purchase of locomotives.

Corridor X is the primary transport route in Serbia, running on a north-south axis and connecting major and secondary urban centres by road and rail. This includes the three largest cities - Belgrade, Novi Sad and Nis.

The EBRD loan will be used to renew over 111 km of track on Corridor X, to purchase track maintenance machinery and to acquire 15 new electric locomotives, which will replace outdated cars for freight services.

It is said the investment would assist Zeleznice Srbije in raising the quality and efficiency of passenger and freight services on rail Corridor X, reducing maintenance costs and improving energy efficiency.

The project, supported by € 650000 in technical assistance grants from the Central European Initiative, German government and the bank's Shareholder Special Fund, will also support Zeleznice Srbije in its restructuring process, implementation of this project and the development of various energy efficiency initiatives.

This is the EBRD's fourth financing extended to Zeleznice Srbije. In total, including the latest loan, the bank provided over € 300 million for the modernisation of Serbian railways.

Since the beginning of its operations in Serbia, the EBRD has committed over € 2,2 billion in various sectors of the Serbian economy, mobilising additional investment in excess of € 2,7 billion.

New Russian, Czech loans for reconstruction & electrification work on Serbian railways...

Quote:
Talks on Russian loan at the end of October

26.10.2010 12:37:00 | Source/Author PressCut
The loan for the Serbian railway worth EUR 350m will be discussed in the meeting of the Mixed Commission for the Cooperation between Serbia and Russia, to be held on October 28 and 29. Serbia will request funds in the amount of EUR 200m for the building of the Belgrade railway junction and EUR 150m for the railway between Valjavo and Loznica.

Serbia’s Ministry of Finances says that the Russian party requests comprehensive preliminary designs for all the suggested projects so that their cost-effectiveness can be estimated. It had already been agreed that Russia would grant USD 800m in loans for Serbia’s railway infrastructure.

Nis-Dimitrovgrad railway electrification starts by end of 2010
22. Okt 2010.

Works on the electrification of Nis-Dimitrovgrad railway, on railway Corridor 10, will most probably commence before the end of the year.

- That is the only section of railway Corridor 10 that has not been electrified yet - said Serbian Railways CEO Milovan Markovic.

Pointing out that the negotiations were underway for the approval of a loan of 120 million euros by the Czech Republic for the modernization of Nis-Dimitrovgrad railway, he said that all technical details of that arrangement would be cleared up very quickly, after which the loan agreement would be signed.

- The works should last for about 3.5 to 4 years, which includes complete reconstruction and electrification of the rail and replacement of safety devices - said Markovic and added that those works also included the construction of a bypass around Nis, which would enable relocation of the freight railway traffic from that city, and maybe even the passenger one.
The railway between Nis and Dimitrovgrad is of great national and international importance and it is among the most significant international main railway lines of Europe (E-70). It is a part of the network of "high performance" railways in southeast Europe.

Electrification work will apparently begin next year on Pancevo-Vrsac-Romania railway, with funding coming from a German loan:

Serbian Railways are in a process of acquiring 25 EMU-s and 4 companies have made an offer. Those are: Alstom, CAF, Siemens and Stadler. After assessing the offers the commission will decide which manufacturer will supply the trains.
Meanwhile the reconstruction of the Kraljevo station, an important junction in the central Serbia is in progress:

Unfortunately they didn’t specify many details in the article. The order is for 25 EMU-s and the companies that made the offer are: Alstom Transport Deutschland GmbH, Stadler Bussnang AG, Siemens AG Osterreich and CAF.

The article didn’t say but the trains will probably have 4 sections. The electrified lines are marked in red and the new trains will ride on almost all of them. The line marked with the dashed line will be electrified in the near future:

Not newspapers but the official magazine of the company.

Finally, black paint around the windows to please the complexes of the "that doesn't look modern" crowd

Here's an imageshack link in case the photobucket one goes down:

The windows look like 1990s. But the rest of the train looks modern. And the train looks very European and not Russian.
