Jump to navigationJump to search

(Sarajevo -) Čapljina ŽFBH - Metković HŽ (- Ploče)

[E] The only train across this border ceased in December 2013 and all internal HŽ passenger services from Ploče ceased from 24 April 2014. HŽ operates to Čapljina. There were plans to start a Sarajevo - Ploče Talgo service in 2017 but these have not happened.

(Bihać ŽRS -) Martin Brod ŽFBH - Knin HŽ

[D] This line crosses the border between Bosnia-Hercegovina and Croatia seven times. Martin Brod has been adopted as the official border station. A ceremonial passenger train, conveying government ministers from both countries, operated over the line on 26 January 2001. The line saw occasional freight traffic, but in 2010 was declared closed by HŽ owing to the poor condition of the track.

However, in May 2017 Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia agreed to seek EU funding to reopen the line between Novi Grad (Bosanski Novi) and Knin and then ZFBH signed a contract on January 16 2018 for works on the section from Blatna to Bihać with the intention of reopening the line from Novi Grad to Bihać to passengers. Novi Grad - Blatna - Bihać reopened to passengers on 3 July 2018

(Novi Grad -) Dobrljin ŽRS - Volinja HŽ (- Sunja)

Srpski Brod ŽRS - Slavonski Brod HŽ

[D] This route closed during the break-up of Yugoslavia but re-opened sometime around 2003. It carries a small amount of freight traffic across the Sava river bridge. Originally this line was narrow gauge, and connected into the main Yugoslav narrow gauge system at Doboj, via Derventa.

(Doboj -) Šamac ŽRS - Slavonski Šamac HŽ (- Strizivojna-Vrpolje)

[E] The Budapest to Sarajevo train pair ended 9 December 2012, closing this line to passenger services. ŽRS operates to Slavonski Šamac. Šamac is referred to as Bosanski Šamac in the Croatian timetable.
