So, what is happening here? This is Aldomirovtsi on the main line between Sofia and Dragoman on Bulgaria's LINE 1. Aldomirovtsi is where loaded coal hoppers from the Beli-breg open cast mine swap diesel power in favour of electric for the onward journey to the Bo-bov Dol power complex. TBD TP (TBD Freight Transports) Class 06 No. 06-303 pulls forward to allow Skoda 44-083 to take control of the loaded consist, the individual seemingly in charge of the whole operation walking ahead with the obligatory mobile phone in hand. In turn the empty rake of hoppers in the centre road will be taken to Beli-breg by 06-303 to collect the next shipment of the never ending flow of coal. 30th August 2022.
