The Steam Locomotives in Bulgarian railways - PHOTOGALLERY
museum@railwaymodeling.com

The first railway route along the nowadays-Bulgarian land was Rouse-Varna (224 km.). The line was opened for exploitation on 7 November 1866. The first state railway Tzaribrod-Sofia-Vakarel was built after Bulgaria’s liberation of Ottoman slavery. Thus the beginning of the railways’ development was set. For many years the steam is a main engine, as at the time when the steam locomotives were being exploited, Bulgaria succeeded to maintain an exclusively high technical level. To the Bulgarian railways were recommended only tested and unique types of locomotives.

Some of the locomotives’ series in the gallery have a pretty individual photo material. Especially when it is about the museum exponents and the restored Bulgarian railways’ steam locomotives. Related to that we place an additional photo gallery link - (additional gallery), where will be located a big part of the additional photographs of the relevant locomotive, in order to improve the photo-gallery’s functionality.
