Obscure services

Doboj - Zenica

(ERA-E 100C5-101A5; ERA-R 221B4-B3) BH24/1

Doboj to Zenica is the only double-track line in Bosnia Herzegovina, apart from short stretches near to other major towns. At various places the northbound and southbound tracks follow different routes, particularly between Maglaj and Natron, between Tomići and Bradići, between Bradići and Globarica, north of Vinište and several kilometers south of Žepče. There are separate lines on both sides of the Bosna river between Jelina and Zenica, but all passenger trains use that on the east bank. The west bank line runs through Zenica steel works. Note that there has been no passenger service between Doboj and Maglaj since March 2020 due to Covid travel restrictions.

Other sparse services

The following lines have few trains (relative to service levels generally in this country) - fewer than three trains each way on at least three days a week - or do not run each weekday:

- Maglaj - Zenica Two return services daily
