As opposed to Romania, where speed limits even on electrified mainlines may be as low as 20 to 40 km/h Bulgarian railways have quite good speeds with trains mostly travelling as fast as the terrain allows for. The narrow-gauge trains also reach a speed of about 60 km/h, and they maintain it along most of the route, but they can't do that in the gorges and loops, making the 125 km journey last about five hours. Trains were mostly punctual, this photo was the only one we took because trains were delayed (actually it allowed us one or two additional photos than we planned).
