During 2017/2018 BDZ (Bulgarian State run Railway) were suffering from a shortage of main line motive power which resulted in a number of Skoda Class 61 electric shunting locomotives assigned to working quite lengthy passenger duties. One member of the class No. 61008 is assigned to train service Ord 50110 Blagoevgrad to Sofia Central morning local stopper. Some two hours into the journey 61008 is pictured as it departs from Dragichevo, four stops out from Pernik on this 31 stop service on 25th April 2017.
