Hi Belgrade friends, I just took the Belgrade - Sofia - Istanbul train. It now does a weird manoeuvrer: after leaving Belgrade station, it takes the bridge across the Sava to Novi Beograd, then changes the engine to the opposite end of the train in order to cross the Sava again but over the new bridge which takes it into a tunnel via Beograd Centar before joining the old parcourse. Looking at a map, this manoeuver seems rather useless. Is it a temporary measure because of construction or is it in preparation for closing the old Belgrade station down, or what?

I think this example of the sad state Serbian rail is in hasn't been posted before. This is a map of speed limits on Serbian railroads. These are only the regular speed limits, there are additional local limitations not shown.

The whole county (plus Montenegro):

Looks pretty massive for a European trainset.

While the trains they are replacing look quite the opposite:

As of last weekend, tourists can enjoy a ride on a heritage train from Mokra Gora in western Serbia to the scenic town of Visegrad in Bosnia's Serb Republic, on a newly restored narrow-gauge railway . The next step will be the extension of this railway from Mokra Gora to the city of Uzice.

It will stop at Beograd Dunav, the station that you can see in the last picture.

Russia sign agreement on railway

Source: Tanjug

Quote:
MOSCOW -- Serbian Railways and Russian Railways signed Tuesday an agreement on projects in the areas of construction and modernization of the rail traffic in Serbia.

Serbian Railways Director General Milovan Marković and Russian Railways Director Vladimir Yakunin signed the agreement in Moscow.

The agreement envisages construction of new rail routes and reconstruction of the old ones, and the projects are expected to be launched late in 2012 after signing the Russian-Serbian agreements on interstate loans.

“We have the total of five projects. Two are related to construction of new railroads, while the other ones are related to modernization and reconstruction of the current infrastructure, including around 400 kilometers of rails. The final deadline for completion of works is five years,” Yakunin said after signing the document.
This 800 million dollar worth project includes:

- completion of Valjevo-Loznica railway
- overhaul of 200km of Belgrade-Bar railway
- overhaul of 110km of Corridor 10 railway through Serbia
- purchase of new DMU trainsets from Metrovagonmash


Overall, Serbia needs some 4-5 billion to overhaul & modernize its most crucial railway network:

Does anyone know if there are any plans to enhance the loading gauge of any of these routes so that they can allow the operation of intermodal trains carrying 4m-high semi-trailers, piggyback style?

Are you talking about Ro-La trains? I think that the main corridor has a UIC GC profile but the branch to Bulgaria maybe has a narrower one. Here’s an axle load map:
