The Romanian-built Class 55 diesel shunter/light freight locomotives continue to ply their trade in and around Bulgaria's freight yards as captured here on 11th October 2023. The location is Iliyantsi where Ruse-based BULMARKET maintain a presence with the class for their shunting requirements within the yard. Class 55 diesel-hydraulic type BB machines (known as type LDH25 in Romania) came from the 23rd August factory in Bucharest between 1969 and 1991, 55-239 being a 1987 example.
