the name of the train is "BH voz", which means "BH Train" - not very creative.

Talgo trains finally enter service in Bosnia-Herzegovina


Quote:
Bosnia and Herzegovina Federal Railways (ZFBH) have introduced into service today its Talgo tilting trainsets on Sarajevo – Doboj route. The BH Voz (BH train) has 237 seats (200 II class, 36 I class, and one seat for people with disables).

ZFBH is negotiating with Croatian Railways the introduction of BH train on Sarajevo-Zagreb international route starting with 2016/2017 timetable.

The railway operator also plans to run Talgo trains on Sarajevo-Banja Luka, Sarajevo-Mostar-Capljina, and Sarajevo-Ploce routes.

In the long term, BH trains could also serve Sarajevo – Bihac route, to be reopened for traffic after modernisation works which include line electrification, an investment estimated at BAM 2.3 million (EUR 1.1 million) investment according to Enis Džafić, General Director of ZFBH.

From today, the international train Sarajevo - Zagreb will be withdrawn!
This means: Bosnia & Herzegovina looses ALL international railway traffic!

The international trains to Belgrade and Budapest plus the night train to Zagreb was withdrawn in the last 3-4 years.

Sad to hear.
I travelled on that route many years ago, the border card at the Republic Sprska got very antsy about my cameras and photography. Not the sort of questioning we would be used to on a European border in the 21st century.

What is the reason? Are there any plans to resume international trains, maybe using Talgo sets?

Bosnian Talgo finally enters service

Quote:
The service is expected to be extended south to Mostar and Čapljina from early 2017, and will run through to the Croatian port of Ploče during the summer.

An extension of the Talgo service north to Banja Luka is envisaged, along with use on the Bihać line where a €1·1m rehabilitation project is planned. An international train to Zagreb is also proposed.

Railway of FBiH could not afford the price of running the trains through Croatia. In the past, this was a more reasonable shared cost, but this year they were not able to reach an agreement. Croatian railway was asking for market prices, which was more money than the train could ever make. This is the reason other Bosnian trains through Croatia were canceled over the years.

The Talgo trains are now running on domestic routes within Bosnia-Herzegovina, as there are no longer any international connections.

Thank you. Why is there no alternative?
HZ already continues to drive a morning train from Zagreb until the border HR/BiH.

If ZBiH introduces a morning train Banja Luka to the same border station vv, at least a cross-border rail connection remains to exist.

I think they were trying to negotiate Talgo going all the way to Zagreb and that plan failed. Not sure why they didn't agree to fall back to the classic train cars crossing border.

ZFBiH also failed to reach an agreement for ZRS for Talgo to even go to Banja Luka, since the railway is divided internally. It only goes to Doboj for now, but they are expected to negotiate again the passage to Banja Luka. This would be a great improvement to quality of train travel from Banja Luka to Doboj and to Sarajevo, as the current trains are very old. Talgo would offer A/C, WiFi, charging plugs, monitors, cafe bar, passive tilt and other comforts.

So what is the status on the train from Sarajevo to Mostar? I heard the line was inactive due to repairs. Will it be operational again this summer?

Bosnia - Croatia railway re-opening initiative

Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia have agreed to seek European Union funding to rehabilitate and reopen the 177·9 km Una line between Novi Grad (Bosanski Novi) and Knin. This once provided the shortest rail route between Zagreb and the Adriatic port of Split, but it has been out of use since being badly damaged during the wars of 1991-96.

Citizens are increasingly using the trains for travelling to the south of BiH, Line for Banja Luka soon to be opened

Quote:


Three weeks after the launch of the BH Train (BH Voz) with Talgo garniture on the line Sarajevo - Capljina, this morning a double composition of wagons was launched towards the south.

"A regular 9-wagon composition was sold out completely yesterday, so we were forced to increase the capacity with another composition. The reason for this is the level of quality of service, attractive prices and increased interest in the tourist season. We have connected Sarajevo and the Adriatic, and by introducing additional Sarajevo-Zenica passenger lines that are synchronised with the existing lines to the south, we will enable passengers from this city to enjoy a comfortable, high-quality and cheap trip to Mostar and further towards the sea. We expect even greater interest of citizens as well as foreign tourists, more so since we will soon open the traffic towards Banja Luka and other cities in the north of the country, but also because we have prepared a whole range of benefits for BH Train passengers" - said Enis Džafić, general manager of Railways Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In the past 15 days, 5,260 passengers were transported on this line, resulting in a daily average of 350 passengers.

In accordance with their valid tariff policy, the ŽFBiH grants commercial benefits to regular travel prices for certain categories of passengers with the relevant document:

- for round-trip journeys, 20% discount;
- for students, journalists, pensioners and persons over 60 years of age, 30% discount;
- For trips of children aged 4 to 12 years, 50% discount
- children under 4 years old are free of charge.

Also, the ŽFBiH also grants discounts for collective trips, for groups of 6 to 30 passengers they will give 30% of discount, and for groups of over 30 adult passengers, they will give 50% of discount.

Passenger train Zenica - Sarajevo departs at 04:54 with arrival to Sarajevo at 06:39. Passengers from this train will be able to make a connection to the train that runs on the route Sarajevo - Capljina, departure from Sarajevo at 07:01 and arrival in Capljina at 09:35.

By passenger train on the route Capljina - Sarajevo departing from Capljina at 19:25 and arriving at Sarajevo at 9:59, passengers will be able to make connections to Sarajevo - Zenica train, with departure from Sarajevo at 22:24 and arrival to Zenica at 00:09 from July 5, 2017.

We can remind that BH Train on the line Sarajevo - Capljina is connected to the bus lines by company Autoherc d.o.o Grude for Neum and Makarska. The departure time from Capljina is 10:15 AM, and the time of arrival at Neum is at 11:20 PM, while the departure time is from Neum at 6:00 PM and the time of arrival in Capljina is at 19:05.

Fast (brzi) train Sarajevo-Čapljina, between Sarajevo and Bradina. This is on the newly reconstructed section of the rail which was opened for traffic a few months ago.
