I find it interesting because you must get to Čakovec first. Nice station, btw!

Thanks, here's a complete view.

Building is now great, but platforms suck. Unfortunately, no reconstruction can be done until a new freight station is built outside of town. Otherwise, there is no room for widening.

Croatian railway infrastructure company "HŽ Infrastruktura" signed 30m € contract to build first new railway line in more than 40 years today

12,2 km of non-electrified single-track railway line between Gradec and Sv. Ivan Žabno will cut travel time between town of Bjelovar and country capital Zagreb almost in half, from 105 minutes today to less than an hour in the future. Project recieved 85% EU funding. Construction will start in October, and should be competed before end of 2017. Contract was awarded to Comsa S.A.U. from Spain and H. F. Wiebe GmbH & Co. KG from Germany.

I have a question. I just noticed a abolished railway line from the port of Ploce through a tunnel into some kind of valley.

https://goo.gl/maps/zT9z4y2ba4E2

https://www.google.de/maps/@43.05387...8i6656!6m1!1e1

Can someone explain me the purpose of this railway line? What was after that tunnel?

Hungary has closed railway border crossings with Croatia for a month. Will trains drive through Slovenia?

No

Nothing has changed, the passenger trains ban was just extended.

Cargo continues to flow as usual.

So if you wanna get from Zagreb to Budapest, you have to go through Slovenia and the border crossing Hodoš/Bajánsenye with Hungary (although you're faster over Vienna ).

Končar KEV DMU enters service







CROATIA: Passenger operator HŽ PP’s first Končar KEV Class 7023 diesel multiple-unit entered revenue service on February 15, operating on the route between Zagreb, Varaždin and Kotoriba.

The three-car articulated DMU is 58·5 m long. It has 151 fixed and nine folding seats, two wheelchair spaces, space for two bicycles and room for 163 standing passengers at 4/m2. It has low-floor entrances, CCTV, a GPS-based passenger information system, wi-fi and air-conditioning.

The driving cars have 390 kW MAN engines, Jenoptik Power Systems generators and Končar traction motors, giving a maximum speed of 120 km/h. AdBlue fuel additive is used.

The DMU cost €4·29m plus VAT. HŽ PP ordered 10 of the DMUs in January 2014 as part of a €213m contract for Končar to supply a total of 44 diesel and electric units, but because of financial difficulties it is unclear whether all will now be delivered.
