    Default [CRO] H 1061- fallen flag

    In early 2019, fifteen locomotives went up in smoke and iron. The locomotives were series FS E636/J 362/H1061. There is nothing to comment on here, the photos say a lot and without words.

    This is their story ...

    Very sad to see, indeed.

    Are these locomotives being replaced with something new?

    Did any get saved from the torch for a museum?

    Unfortunately no.

    This is very difficult to answer but I will try to explain current situation: six locomotives have been preserved, two of which are under the direct protection of the state.

    What will be happen in the near future with these locomotives no one knows. Where these locomotives are (see photo in first post), that's where new road should come. I don't know if these remaining locomotives will be stored and saved, I'm just a railfan who documented it all, I'm not work in H (Croatian railways).

    H 1061 108 was selected for museum (Railway museum in Zagreb), which was only original that came from Italy, but it was first to be destroyed. Destiny? No, she was first in line.

    That's sad. We've lost a lot of locomotives, very special and unique ones too as in one of a kind units, that got cut up for scrap. Today the preservationists are kicking themselves for not asking for them sooner.

    If I understand you correctly, a road is going in where the tracks are? If that's the case, that's worse than losing the locomotives because once track is gone, it's gone forever. People forget how useful the railways are for moving goods and people then when the want to put them back it's took expensive to do so, and there are those that fight it because "trains make noise, smell, and are big". We have a number of lines that have become bicycle trails and paths in areas where the trains should be running, but so many people wanted the tracks and trains gone because they were noisy and old.

    Yes, both track will be moved. But ... turntable ... on first picture You can see on right side big workshed for freight cars and left track will be reconnect with old turntable and service places.

    What will be with locomotives we will see. Miracles are possible, even in small Croatia

    Gawd those pictures are sad to look at!

    The good news is at least the tracks will be moved and infrastructure reconnected. That's not how it goes here instead the tracks get paved over and walking paths go in with signs that tell the story of the line and the passenger depots become coffee and ice cream shops. Sometimes they acquire a locomotive or DMU and park it out in front of the line as if to honor the railroad that as once there. I would rather see the line operating than have a stuffed engine sitting there.
