Steam in Bosnia, 2004
Olivier Foiche reports:
Kakanj : 060 T 62-020 shunting, 62-366 under repair and 62-031 dumped (reserved by French group)
Zenica mine : 62-633 shunting
Zenica steelworks : 62-380 and 62-520 in use (the passenger train was
steam train !), 62-362 plinthed at the entrance, 62-314/316/361/372/373/374 out of used
Mramor : like Durdevik
Bukinje : the mine is closed. In the shed, I saw 62-376/637 and 210 german kriegslok 33-503 cold, 33-064 under minor repair and 33-504 dumped.
Sikulie : 33-216 was shunting. Sadly, a diesel engine (661) comes now inside the mine to bring the train to Lukavac and then Kreka
Dubrave : 33-248 shunting
Kreka mine people said to me that they have 10 steam engines (5x62 and 5x33) and don't want to buy diesel engine at this time. A 62 from Breza is actually under overhaul at Bukinje shed and they loan a 62 engine to Breza mine during overhaul
Tuzla line and Bihac line are reopened.
