Welcome to "Phil's Loco Photos"

A five day trip to Romania and Bulgaria to sample some Kolomna action in northern Bulgaria, I flew from London City to Bucureşti Otopeni via Frankfurt/M and we then picked up the overnight towards Sofia. Sulzer power to Giurgiu Nord and then an 07 over the massive bridge into Bulgaria. We went to Pleven and the returned to Levski. We had hoped to find 07s on both the Svishtov and Trojan branches but almost everything was boring 55s, however ex works 55.169 which we took south to Umarevci actually sound pretty good, but not as good as 07.028 coming back north on a mixed train! We then did the Svishtov with a 55 and then went to Gorna Orjahovica for a pre arranged depot visit. We stayed the night at Veliko Târnovo and next day did the 07 on the weekend only mixed train to Elena and back. We then went as far as Cherven Brjag to pick up the sleeping car heading to Silistra getting 07.047 from Samuil. We got off at Rujno and then returned with 07.045 and then went to Ruse and went to the depot for some photos of 07s there. We tried to get on the “local train” from Ruse Razpredelitelna - Giurgiu Nord but the passport people who not have any of it so we had to hang around a few hours for international train 498. We had 07.049 over the bridge and then a 62 into Bucureşti and a 41 to Caracal where we stayed. I returned home from there two days later. Note…more photos to be added when scanned
