A pair of OBB (Austrian Federal Railways) SIEMENS/KRAUSS Maffei Bo-Bo AC electrics stand at Iliyansti station on 9th May 2023. Locomotives 1116257 and 1116 112 have just brought in a westbound freight working into Iliyansti Yard from an unknown location in eastern Bulgaria. Following a crew change 257 and 112 departed via the spur towards Voluyak Yard on the western outskirts of Sofia. An ever increasing number of freight workings are appearing in Bulgaria worked by private operators such as OBB. These OBB Class 1116 electrics can be observed on a variety of workings in Bulgaria including although not exclusively on east/west inter-modal diagrams.
