At Avramovo, the highest point on the Rhodope Mountain Narrow Gauge Railway, German-built Henschel B-B diesel No. 75009 is ready to begin the long descent initially to Velingrad and then beyond to Septemvri with afternoon train service Fast 1662 (14:40) from Dobrinishte on 20th September 2022. Its been widely reported that BDZ PP have been looking for foreign investors to contribute towards the running of this unique railway line. With that in mind we see the seven coach consist of this train carrying Pirinsko Pivo beer branding, a more local sponsor brewing local beer in the nearby Pirin Mountain range area.
