No problem... if you have snow, fog or sunset, you can always make spectacular railways

Having spectacular railways isn't always nice and easy . This pictures are from September 2007. Transalpina was repaired after two weeks. Power of nature:

Thanks Station buildings are mostly painted light pink or orange. Some of them are very well maintained, especially on local railways (because of local community )





This is unmodernized version of Fiat SŽ 814, in 2013 they are going to be replaced with new 6 DMUs:

Awesome pics again! Too bad the average speed of pendolinos between Ljubljana and Koper is less than 70 km/h.

At what speed are Slovenia's fastest trains running during the normal service?

And indeed some awesome pics again

160km/h, Pendolino could go 200km/h but there are too many road crossings and would be dangerous.

Their average speed is much lower though. The average speed of pendolinos between Ljubljana and Maribor is just 88 km/h. Between Ljubljana and Koper (Adriatic Sea) it's even less than 70 km/h (running only in summer weekends). Pendolino between Ljubljana and Venice was abolished.

Do you know the reason(s)?

^ I don't know, but an interesting thing is that if you'd gone to Venice (or from Venice to Ljubljana) just for a day, you couldn't've gone by pendolino in both directions, one direction had to be done by 'ordinary' train. Not very handy, if you ask me.

Money of course FS (Ferrovie dello Stato) is canceling all passanger trains to Easteren Europe, they aren't profitable enough, because Italian railways are in big cries. Next year is going to be the last with passanger train between Slovenia and Italia. Interesting how we are more connected now, in united Europe Yugoslavia had more than 4 passager trains daily (8 in both directions) with Italy.
