And how's it going with the modernisation of the line Nis - Caribrod?

Btw. Bulgaria has the UIC CG profile on it's main lines. We also have some trains running with standard 1520 mm Russian freight cars, of course with bogies for 1435 mm.

No, unaccompanied intermodal, and specifically piggyback trailers.

I ask as none of the existing intermodal services seem to carry trailers, and Ekol Logisitcs for some reason uses Arad as the start and finish point for block trains serving Germany, and then connects Arad with Turkey by road.

I thought the only reason it might be doing this is due to loading gauge constraints between through Romania to Turkey preventing the transport of 4m-high trailers.

RZD supports Serbian Railways modernisation
12 April 2012

Quote:
SERBIA: An agreement for Russian Railways to assist Serbian Railways with the construction of a 68 km electrified line between Valjevo and Loznica and assist with the modernisation of more than 300 km of existing route was signed by RZD President Vladimir Yakunin and ZS Director General Milovan Markovic on March 27.

The Russian government is expected to provide Serbia with an US$800m loan later this year which would cover 85% of the cost of the five-year construction and modernisation programme. RZD would supply 70% of the workers and materials, with the remaining 30% being locally sourced in Serbia.

As well as the new line, a second track is to be provided over the 16 km between Beograd and Pancevo. Six sections of Pan-European Corridor X totalling 111 km are to be modernised, along with the 200 km Serbian section of the route from Beograd to Bar in Montenegro.

Speed restrictions of 30 km/h are currently in force on many lines, and modernisation should permit 120 km/h operation.

I have a curiosity: since the introduction of BG:Voz, have other Beovoz services been cut back? If yes, why is that and are they planing to get them back to normal levels?

Yes, BG Voz now serves the passengers that live in the Belgrade area. The old Beovoz is gone because the BG Voz makes it redundant. Since the city of Belgrade doesn’t want to finance trains that run outside the city limits, Beovoz is now used to connect Belgrade with neighboring cities. In reality that means that most of Beovoz trains run between Belgrade and Pančevo.

The main line of the old Beovoz was Pančevo-Batajnica because people from those two towns were the main users of the train, going to school and work every day in Belgrade. And now passengers from Batajnica are served by the BG Voz so Beovoz only runs on the Pančevo branch. The trains for Valjevo and Mladenovac run like ordinary long distance trains but they are part of the Beovoz because they use the tunnel in the city and not the main train station. And there is also the shuttle train for Inđija because the city doesn’t want the BG Voz to run outside the Belgrade area.

There are plans to reconstruct the rail line to Pančevo and to add a second track. That will make the Beovoz much more reliable and useful service for the people of Pančevo. The BG Voz will also be extended north of the Danube River to serve people who live in Belgrade’s northern suburbs. However the city of Belgrade will not extend the BG Voz outside the city boundaries so its last stop is going to be in Ovča, the last station before Pančevo.

P.S.: I’ve sent you a private message.

It’s not official but the trains will probably run in Vojvodina in order to replace the ancient railbuses. Besides Vršac, the train depots are located in Sombor, Subotica, Kikinda, Zrenjanin, Ruma and of course in Novi Sad. As for the central Serbia, the depots at Kraljevo and Zaječar have old but usable Y1 railcars. The depot at Niš serves the line to Dimitrovgrad but it is planned for electrification. The Niš depot also provides trains for the Kosovo Polje line but trains only run up to Merdare because of the bombed tunnel and the political situation.

The 12 new DMU’s will not significantly increase the passenger service however the management said that they will buy more.

P.S.:Thanks

Chinese initiative to build high-speed rail
Source: Tanjug

BELGRADE -- The Chinese Embassy in Budapest has launched an initiative for the construction of high-speed rail on Corridor 10 between Belgrade and Budapest.

Tanjug is quoting Serbian Ministry of Transport sources who on Thursday said that the rail would have trains traveling faster than 300 km/h.

The total value of the investment would add up to EUR 2 billion, early estimates show.

According to Chinese representatives, officials should discuss the possibility of building the railway for trains that go at speeds of over 300 km/h since it would be built in almost perfect conditions thanks to the environment.

Trains connecting the two countries would be modern, of the latest generation which are used in China nowadays.

Hungary knows about the idea and the first steps in terms of the initiation of talks have been made, and report about this has been presented during the recent meeting between the head of the Economic Department of the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade and Serbian Minister of Transport Milutin Mrkonjić, the news agency reported.

Talks on the model and the ownership structure of the project should also be conducted. At this stage, it is known that Chinese investors allocated the funds from the Chinese Development Fund aimed at investments in south-east Europe.

Chinese officials suggested that loans should be ensured and this matter should be discussed by the governments of Serbia and Hungary.

The Chinese initiative for the construction of high-speed rail was also discussed at the session which the joint Hungary-Serbia commission held last December, and it was included in the conclusions on the commission's work.

According to analyses issued so far and the data procured from economic and expert teams, the railway would pay off and its construction would be justified since the flow of passengers, goods and capital between the two countries is constantly increasing.

Back in 1992, the European Commission defined the idea for the construction of the Belgrade-Budapest railway as one of the priorities in the sector of the development of railway infrastructure.

Serbian Rail Company Buys Rolling Stock From Swiss Stadler
Quote:
Stadler flirting in Serbia

Serbian Railways (ŽS) has ordered 21 electric FLIRTs (Fast Light Innovative Regional Train) from Stadler Rail for commuter rail services in the Belgrade region. The contract worth around EUR 100 million was signed today in Belgrade. The order is being financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in London. The vehicles will be delivered in two-week intervals between autumn 2014 and late summer 2015. The trains are very environmentally friendly due to their low energy consumption.



Today, at the headquarters of ŽS in Belgrade, Dragoljub Simonović, Executive Director of ŽS, and Peter Jenelten, Executive Vice President Marketing & Sales at Stadler Rail, signed the contract for the procurement of the 21 new trains. The trains ordered are latest-generation four-carriage FLIRTs. Based on the FLIRT, which has sold over 800 units over the last 10 years, Stadler has developed the next generation, FLIRT3. This latest range of trains is made up of various modular sub-ranges. Peter Jenelten is very pleased about the order: “We are proud that we were able to win this EBRD-financed invitation to tender. The new FLIRT trains will allow ŽS to set new standards in regional transport. And it is our first FLIRT order in South-Eastern Europe.”



Comfortable and environmentally friendly
The trains have an electric drive for a voltage of 25 kV, 50 Hz. The maximum speed of the modern trains is 160 km/h, and they can be used for three-way traction. The carriage areas can all be accessed without steps and have 234 seats, including 14 tip-up seats and 12 seats in 1st class. The FLIRTs incorporate spacious multifunctional compartments in the entrance area for wheelchairs, prams and bicycles, a wheelchair-accessible toilet and air-conditioning. Emergency intercoms allow passengers to contact the driver.



The trains will initially have an Indusi train control system, with a subsequent upgrade to the European ETCS 2 standard included at the planning stage. The vehicles are made of lightweight aluminium and are therefore low in weight. This means they can accelerate faster, thus significantly reducing energy consumption and operating costs in comparison to conventional vehicles.



Tailored to customer requirements
Each of the four bodies has one passenger door per side to meet the requirements of Serbian Railways. This highlights one of the real strengths of the FLIRT3 concept: the number of doors and various other features can be adapted variably to meet the customer’s requirements.



The first units will be delivered in autumn 2014. Ten weeks after the delivery of the first vehicle, the remaining 20 trains will be delivered in two-week intervals. Thus, the last vehicle will arrive in late summer 2015.
