Apparently, the first of the ten new trains for the Macedonian railways, at unloading at the port of Thessaloniki. A total of four diesel and six electric passenger trains with a capacity of 200 people and a speed of 160 km/h will be delivered. They are manufactured in China, and the total cost is 25 million euros.

OK, and officially the new trains arrived in Skopje. There is still no information about that in the media, except some articles with the basic info about the trains (capacity, speed etc.), but not about the number of the arrived trains or the lines they will operate.

Anyway, good news for Macedonia.

The thing is:
We do not need any new trains. At least not now. We need infrastructure. Some of the rails are as old as 50 to 80 years while the train stations around the country are true horrors and no one is using them.
At this point of time I would use some of these machines for a new line from the central railway station to the capital airport.

As a discussion forum as SSC is, first of all we need to make more talks on a threads like this, since all of this pictures are useless if people are not familiar with the railway infrastructure in the country.
Its more than a horror and we need the very BASIC re/construction to start, which in fact will worth millions to start repairing something. Other than that this trains are useless.

Well, just look at the condition of the depot where the new train is being prepared for use - it's awful. We should start from there - reconstruction of the basic infrastructure.

I agree, and I often put the example-parallel for the road infrastructure. You cannot reduce the accidents in our country if you don't invest in the infrastructure. Fast cars and rising cost of living needs better and high level road infrastructure.
It's the same with the railway network. We are a very small country which can become very developed if there is an action plan for the next decade and it should start from the very small and basic things and the projects will evolve over time. Speaking about national investments.

The reconstruction of the train station in the city of Prilep is almost finished. I believe that the reconstruction of the interior is left for the end.

Photo from the history of the Macedonian railroads - the morning train from Presek, with Feldbahn, at the end of its four and a half hour trip, approaching Ohrid. Spring 1965. (Line closed 1966.)

Six train stations were reconstructed on the Corridor 10

The reconstruction of the train stations on the Corridor 10 is almost finished. The stations in Veles, Prilep, Gradsko, Demir Kapija, Negotino and Tabanovce were reconstructed and now only the interiors need to be renewed.

This year will be reconstructed four other stations - in Bitola, Chashka, Bogomila and Gevgelija. The project is implemented with the support of the EU funds.
