Bradina and the rack section.
A pair of JŽ class 83
0-8-2s get the all clear to leave Bradina with a freight
train to Sarajevo. They are coupled
tender-to-tender which was normal practice for double-headed
working as it avoiding having to turn the engines. The one
nearest to the camera is 83.073 (Krauss Linz/1909).

0-6+4 rack-and-adhesion engine 97.020 (Floridsdorf/1908) by
the coaling stage at Bradina as we emerge from the long tunnel
under the Ivan Pass. It looks like one of the crew is
having an early lunch.
JŽ class 97
0-6+4 rack-and-adhesion engine 97.034 (Floridsdorf/1915)
awaits its next turn of duty at Bradina which will be to
provide the trailing loco for our descent to Konjic.

continues to slowly descend the 1 in 17 rack section behind
0-6+4 rack-and-adhesion engine 97.024
(Floridsdorf/1911). Although the distance between
Bradina and Konjic was only 13km, the time allowed was 54
minutes including engine changes! The passengers
in the carriage in front of ours seem fascinated by us British
gricers hanging out of the windows with our cameras.
the 1 in 17 rack section below Bradina with 0-6+4
rack-and-adhesion engine 97.034 (Floridsdorf/1915) at the rear
of our train. It was normal practice to have a
loco at each end of the train on the rack section. The train
had been split in half and luckily our part went down the rack
section first, possibly because we were in the only first
class carriage! The new standard gauge line is
under construction above. Page 6, Konjic
