How are the works to fully reopen the main Slovenian line going? Apparently most if not all passenger trains from Ljubljana to the coast are partly replaced by buses.

One railway track should be electrified completely until the end of May however there have been some problems on most difficult parts so this is delayed for a few months, at least until September. All local passenger trains are still replaced by buses, but there are few express passenger trains that travel all the way from Ljubljana to the coast.

There are frequent trains only to Borovnica.

One track will be open for electric traction till end of this month, only for freight tho. Other one at the start of September supposedly. With both tracks back on electric traction, passenger trains will be back(at least they say so, but for SŽ, passenger traffic is more of unwanted activity, which they exploit for extracting subsidies from the state and then most of the money goes elsewhere).

Wasn't a conversion of the old 3kV lines to 25kV planned in the medium term?

The new 3kV catenary does not look like it could be switched over to 25kV without throwing it away. Spain has developed a catenary type that can handle a future conversion from "low" voltage DC to high voltage AC while keeping mostly all of the catenary system....

Nope, it seems that they have abandoned that plan.

Croatia had run 3 kV through 25 kV catenary for some time without much trouble.

Not true, the new network is prepared for 25kV (photo in the article is symbolical and from Ljubljana main station). New sction Pragersko - Hodoš (Hungarian border) is also prepared for 25kV. But don't expect the big switch. It won't happen so soon and to be honest, it's not really needed. It's cheaper to buy multi system locomotives.

How is it prepared if the catenary is of 3 kV type?

Where did you get this info? I've been told it's ready for 25kv. The same elements were used in Hodoš on the 25kV side of the station.

On Pragersko-Hodoš line all network elements including feeder stations are desinged for 25kV AC conversion with minor alterations - 3kV "looking"cantenary doesnt play any role here - key are the insulators used etc...
Same is done with newly done sections, minus feeder stations which would have to be mostly replaced. Will happen sooner or later cause of the limitations of 3kV system, especially with weak old feeder stations - so having dense freight traffic with power hungry locomotives at same section(especially with climbs) its not possible, cause of lack of power supplied.

Electrification and modernization of the 109-km railway to Hungary is completed, allowing speeds of up to 160 km/h.
