Dear railway fans,

Dear partners,

With great pleasure we would like to inform you that we can already welcome the newest member of the BDZ’s steam loco flotilla.

The rebuilding of the long awaited steam locomotive 16.27 completed successfully! Last week the first test runs of the locomotive have been carried out.

We would like to thank the locomotive team for the good and hard work. With diligence and restlessness, and especially strong will the team brought the locomotive back to life.

We hope that next year you will enjoy the first charter train trip with the newly rebuilt locomotives 46.03 and 16.27 with us!

In the meantime, the rebuilding of the other long awaited steam locomotive – 46.03, is running also at a good pace.

We will keep you informed!

Best regards,

Ulpia Tours

Dear railway fans,

As you already know, Bulgaria possesses 4 active historic steam locomotives which operate on our unforgettable special train trips. These are the standard gauge locos 01.23, 03.12 and 05.01 and the narrow gauge locomotive 609.76

And now the good news!!!

In the next year the “steam loco flotilla” of Bulgaria will be enriched with another two remarkable steam locomotives, which are now being rebuilt:

The only twelve-coupled 46.03 – a steam loco, which is one of the largest and most powerful standard gauge tank locomotives in Europe, built in 1931 by the Polish company Cegielski,

and

Steam locomotive 16.27, part of the DRB class 42, which belonged to the Lokomotivfabrik Floridsdorf in Vienna (WLF) till 1952, when it was sold to Bulgaria together with another 32 locomotives of the same series.

Herewith I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Mr. Heym – the responsible editor of “Lok Magazin” of GeraMond Verlag Ltd. – for the approval to publish on our website the article of Mr. Alfons Stettner “In den Schluchten des Balkans” / “In the Gorges of the Balkan”!

Many thanks also to Mr. Stettner – the author of the article!

To the article „In den Schluchten des Balkans“ / “In the Gorges of the Balkan” (.pdf)

Through this article you can get an even closer look at the museum locomotives in Bulgaria. Hope you will be able to enjoy it in its original, in German. Pease let us know, if you need our assistance with translation.

See you soon on our new photo adventures in Bulgaria, 2015!
