Two views of DMU's on the 76cm Zagreb to Samobor line on July 29th 1970.  The Samobor line was not part of the national system but was run by the city of Zagreb.  The railway opened in 1901 and closed in 1979.  It had four of these diesel trainsets, three of which were scrapped on closure.   One DMU survived and the body is now at Zagreb Marshalling Yard while the bogies are in the Croatian Railway Museum.  The surviving unit is DEV-3.  Plans are now being made for a new railway to run from Zagreb to Samobor.  The line could be viewed from the main line from northern Europe to Zagreb and was often a passing enthusiasts first view of the Yugoslav narrow gauge.
