Scheduled stops at Jakoruda are timed to allow opposite direction passenger services to pass on the single line Rhodope Valley Mountain Railway. Arriving first from the south, 77002 has charge of the morning Ord 16104 service from Dobrinishte to Septemvri on 21st July 2019. The driver in his blue overalls leaves the cab and heads for the line of cameras gesticulating and saying something in Bulgarian. Turns out he is offering the photographers to sit in the cab while he takes a shot of them looking out of the window with their own cameras! A few took him up on his kind gesture.
