Konjic and Jablanica
shed with two JŽ class 97 0-6+4 rack-and-adhesion and two
class 83 0-8-2 locomotives outside.
JŽ class 97
0-6+4 rack-and-adhesion engine 97.024 (Floridsdorf/1911) has
just come off the front of our train at Konjic after
descending the rack section from Bradina. These
remarkable machines had two outside cylinders for the adhesion
wheels and two inside cylinders for the cogwheel rack drive.
The two systems were not connected so the exhaust would vary
as the two sets of cylinders worked in and out of phase.
JŽ class 83
0-8-2 83.161 (Slavonski Brod/1948) has taken over our train
from the rack locos at Konjic and will take us the 69km to
Mostar. A grabbed b/w shot while trying to avoid
the railway police!

class 83 0-8-2 83.161 (Slavonski Brod/1948) waits at
Jablanica with our portion of the 08:25 train from
Sarajevo. We had a long wait here expecting the
second portion of the train to arrive. However, due to
congestion, our train eventually moved on to Prenj where the
second portion finally caught up with us.
