We didn't expect a freight train here as there are expansion works going on at the Rijeka port, where normally the iron ore for the Zenica steel mill comes from (that's why the track is double-track to the North from Zenica and not towards the capital), but we were lucky to catch one travelling on the wrong track (thus the red headlights). We thought based on the wear on the rails that the other track is just rarely used. The idea behind this trip was that now the irone ore comes to Ploče so there are a lot more freight trains on the Zenica-Sarajevo-Mostar-Ploče railway accross the mountains, bringing iron ore from the port to the mill and (using the same Eas cars) freshly milled steel plates and casts from Zenica down to the port, over the Ivan pass.
