The New Frontier
26th April 2014

After another trip from Prishtine on the Peje service train with 001, Saturday's tour again started at Fushe Kosovo with 2640007, formerly 003 or JZ 661.228

Reflections on a soggy railtour at Bardh

Having reversed at Bardh 007 (ex NSB Di3.641) took over for the run to the mine, seen here near the M9 motorway bridge

At Gllavica nickel mine we decamped into the mud and rain for some more photos

Back at Bardh we met 005 on a freight so we had to get some shots of the two working Nohabs together

After 007 had taken us back to Fushe Kosovo shunter MDD3-01 dragged us out to the depot

010, built with parts from JZ 661.203, took over for the run north, seen here at Kastriot

Another runpast at another unidentified station keeps the locals (and us) amused - or should that be bemused?

Nice idea to get a shot with the mountains as a backdrop, but doesn't really work from such a low vantage point

On the outskirts of Mitrovice we finally got some sun, and a derelict bus for added interest

Looking north towards Mitrovice this is probably the best picture from the tour for me

Mitrovice was deemed to be as far north as we could safely go

For those of us that wanted to, we then walked out to the roadblock on the bridge over the river Iber which marks the start of the disputed Serb controlled northern area of Kosovo

Then it was back to Mitrovice station for the run back to Fushe Kosovo and the end of a very interesting two days of railtours
