Lokomotive with Famous Names

When the Special Train started operated it was hauled by the steam locomotives.
These locomotives were confiscated after the Second World War, series 11. Since 1947 the “Special Train” was hauled by the locomotive marked 11-022, manufactured in Hungary.

For the “Blue Train”, as we know it today, three diesel-hydraulic locomotives were procured from the Krauss-Maffei factory from Munich, and these locomotives were marked with serial numbers and names. Therefore the locomotive 761-001 was named “Dinara”, 761-002 „Kozara“ and 761-003 „Sutjeska“.

After 20 years these locomotives were replaced with 4 diesel-electric locomotives series 666, purchased in “General Motors” factory in 1978. Beside the serial number and item number they had also famous names: 666-001 „Dinara“, 666-002 „Kozara“, 666-003 „Sutjeska“ and  666-004 „Neretva“.
