Man, instead of showing the desiro crap, a bit experienced people know it´s crap, show the airconditioned German Intercity trains, they aren´t that round infront but they are in fact better, they are for long distance, vey confortable and very quiet when travelling.

^^ Desiro are not intercity trains , nor are for long distance lines. But they are just perfect for short distance lines. Dupnica-Sofia, Pernik-Sofia etc. etc.... I didn't see BDZ using them for Sofia-Varna or Sofia-Burgas lines , and i doubt I will ever see .

And here they are, a nice new Desiro train but beneath it the ugly 6 angular tiles from communist times, not very good. The train on the last pic is not that great, I thought they bought German Intercity trains but no, they are Interregio trains, these don´t have aircondition as you can see, the windows can be opened.

^^ Ok, feel free to write a p.m. to 3tmk, as i can't change the thread name alone.

btw, I never knew that there were other transporters aside from BDZ in Bulgaria... :nuts:

Bulmarket are from my hometown and are owned by an ex-mayor-ex-minister. I don't like that guy, he is notorious for being corrupt and for turning the town into a "First private one" during the end of 90s, when he became a minister he was the first to sign those stupid Microsoft contracts, he managed to ensure his monopoly over methane fuel imports, etc. Even though he sold his methane gas stations business, he is now into biodiesel production. He owns ships too:



And yes, this is the first Bulgarian private company with a license for freight railway transport.
