BDZ PP (Bulgarian State run Railway Passenger Division) 1982 build Skoda No. 45149 is pictured at Burgas on 9th June 2018. Its fair to assume that the driver is going off duty as he is captured removing his overalls. This locomotive started life as a Class 43 but later re-designated Class 45 following re-gearing for a reduced maximum running speed to 110 kilometers per hour. With the absence of any run round facility the station pilot in the form of Romanian-built Class 55 shunter No. 55 206 will shortly arrive on scene to release the loco.
