Croatian plant to assemble Newag locomotives
Monday, June 02, 2014



POLISH rolling stock manufacturer Newag has reached an agreement with Duro Daković Specijalna Vozila, which will enable the Croatian company to assemble Newag E4ACU Griffin electric locomotives at its plant in Slavonski Brod.

The agreement will allow Duro Daković to sell the Griffin to customers in both EU and non-EU countries, and the two companies will jointly produce an initial batch of four single-voltage locomotives.

"This is an important agreement for Duro Daković because it brings locomotive production back to Slavonski Brod for the first time in 23 years," says Duro Daković chairman Mr Vladimir Kovačevi. "Bearing in mind that [Croatian Railways railfreight subsidiary] HŽ Cargo needs new locomotives, we hope that with good quality products, competitive prices, and additional benefits together with Newag we can gain the trust of the carrier."

Newag is offering the Griffin in seven different variants for freight and passenger operations, including 3kV dc, 15kV/25kV ac, and multi-system electrics. All electric versions of the Griffin have a continuous output of 5.6MW and a maximum speed of 140 or 200km/h.

Duro Daković ceased locomotive production during the Balkan conflict in 1991, but continues to produce freight wagons at its Slavonski Brod facility

Cross-border revival
22 Sep 2014



EUROPE: Work is underway to reopen the 74 km line between Đurmanec in Croatia and Sveti Rok ob Sotli in Slovenia. The line closed in 1994 owing to the poor condition of the infrastructure and the problems of managing the border crossing following independence.

The scope of the 66m project includes reconstructing four bridges and the Lupinjak tunnel. The main contractor is Croatian company Prune Građevine.

National passenger operators H PP and S expect to revive passenger services on the route in December.

Are those speeds in Istria correct? When I went to Pula, it felt more like 50 km/h, it was really slow.

Thanks! As accurate as possible. The speeds are from Croatian Railways current Network Statement.

I will update the map in the following years, hopefully. There should be some progress.

Yes, they are correct. There are some further local restrictions too short to fit on the map.

Feeling of speed can be quite misleading. If on a good track, everything feels slow. On a bad and curvy track, even 60 feels like 100.

I might add that it also depends on rolling stock. I take the same route home from work every day. Usually on a relatively new train, but occasionally on a really old one (ca 40 years I'd guess) and it feels considerably faster on the latter.

Ok, but let's look at actual driving times. If you take the Pula-Ljubljana train, you need 1h 36 min from Pula to Buzet (18.10-19.46). The train stops at 4 stations inbetween, so it would need about 1.5h, if it didn't. What's the distance between Pula and Buzet? It can't be more than 100 km, so that means just 67 km/h average speed, which is less than the lowest speed posted on your map in Istria (70 km/h).

Track length Buzet - Pula is 86 km.

That gives average speed of about 60 km/h.

But like I said, there are many "slow spots", 15 to be precise. Most with speed restrictions as low as 10, 20 or 30 km/h. They are short (few hundred meters each), but "lose" a minute or two on every one and you get the average speed above.
