The narrow-gauge terminal is just next to the normal tracks. The yellow thing is an old Budapest tram trailer. It kept its original, normal-gauge gears, only the wheels have been placed closer on their axles. Despite the track is newly laid it has many bumps in it, so I don't think a car not designed specifically for a 760 mm (Bosnian) gauge is going to be safe. If the test runs are OK, they start rebuilding the interior of the tramcar too, as it was greatly vandalised by the passengers at Budapest.
