New bridge ? Are you sure ? Isn't that the bridge visible from the approach
of Belgrade central passenger station ? If this is it, I saw it, under
construction but nearly finished, when I was there, on my way to Athens,
when I was 20 years old. That is, 30 years ago...

It's a misunderstanding. The official name is "The New Railway Bridge" so everybody calls it new railway bridge. And you are right it's radder old now, it was finished in 1978. You where crossing the river via "The Old Railway Bridge" when you saw it. They weren't very imaginative when they gave them names.

There is a large area in Belgrade called "The New Belgrade" even though they started constructing it in 1947.

Due to the snow blizzard train from Vienna was 8 hours late!



The first coach is Serbian one, with the new gray livery. The second and third ones are Austrian. The fourth coach is from Bulgaria. Fifth from Kiev and sixth from Moscow.



Coaches from Kiev and Moscow were supposed to arrive yesterday but they couldn't leave Budapest. They are arriving 15 hours late!

Class 444 pulling freight. Since traffic have been normalized there are a lot of freight trains on the tracks.

Nice photos! In terms of rollling stock, Serbian Railways are pretty similar with the Romanian ones, IMO. Do you have any two-deckers?

No, Serbian Railways don't have any double decker coaches. I don't like how double decker coaches look, classical coaches look much better and are more elegant.

Serbian Railways are in possession of numerous salon coaches. These coaches were used by the former Yugoslav president Josip Broz Tito and other high ranking communist officials. Most of them are still usable today and serve as coaches for special and touristic trains.
