Few rare historical photos of the narrow gauge line Gostivar-Ohrid (the line was closed in 1966). These photos are from 1965.

Loko Trans to develop Skopje rail hub
24 Nov 2016



MACEDONIA: Czech freight operator and rolling stock maintenance company Loko Trans is to invest €20m to establish a logistics centre in Skopje to serve the Balkan region.

This will include facilities for rolling stock maintenance and repair, as well as freight transhipment, warehousing and a customs office. Construction is expected to start in the first half of 2017 for completion within a year. Loko Trans expects to create between 150 and 200 jobs at first, growing to 600 at a later stage.

Subsidiary Loko Trans Cargo has begun the process to obtain certification enabling it to operate freight trains in Macedonia

There are five trains between Skopje and Bitola 541 641 643 543 645. Maybe somebody knows which one is operating as traditional train: diesel locomotive with wagons?

The reconstructed station in the city of Bitola. The station was built in the late 19th century as part of the line Bitola - Thessaloniki, to connect the two biggest cities in the European part of the Ottoman Empire.

Well, you forget that Istanbul / Konstantinoupolis / Carigrad is also in Europe, so Bitola / Monastir moves down to no. 3....

Anyways, it will be great if trains will once again run from Thessaloniki / Solun / Salonico /Selanik up to Bitola. I will definitely take it. It will also be a great sign against the trend to close up borders and hate the rest of the world, which ironically is a global trend right now.

Good news, everyone!



Quote:
The EU Will Finance the Construction of the Macedonia-Bulgaria Railway Line

The European Union will finance the construction of the Corridor 8 railway line, which should connect the Black Sea with the Adriatic Sea and pass through the territory of the Republic of Macedonia. This is what EU Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn told Deutsche Welle.

He also mentioned Brussels will offer a total of 6 transport projects - highways and railroads. "One of the railway projects is going to be connected with the famous Corridor 8, which should connect the East-West link from Bulgaria through Macedonia and reach Albania," Hahn said.

The Commissioner's statement came hours before the EU-Western Balkans summit in the framework of the Berlin process, which opens today in the Italian city of Trieste. The meeting is held in Italy, as current chair of the EU Council and is organized at the highest level.

For us is really important to connect with Bulgaria, because in the moment most of the Macedonian import of goods comes from the Thessaloniki port, but in the recent years there are strikes and protests all the time and the trade suffers a lot of damage. The Burgas port would be some alternative, and the Dures port would be also an alternative in near future. Also, the railroad connection between Macedonia and Bulgaria would increase the trade between these two countries.
