This is an old, originally American diesel. It is a Serbian railways class 661. USA sold these EMD G16 machines nicknamed "Kenedi" to what then was Yugoslavia and this was one of the most used diesel locomotives in the country. When Yugoslavia broke up, the machines were divided amongst the newly born nations. For more pictures of these machines, see for example the Slovenian section of this picture archive. This individual still carries the old Yugoslav Railways colours and markings as well as the old class number 661. It has merely gotten a new red logo at its front.

These Y1 railbuses used to be Swedish. They were built for the Swedish state railways SJ 1979-81 by Fiat Ferroviaria and Kalmar industries. The railbus is based on the Fiat ALn668 railbuses delivered for the Italian state railways FS, although they received a new chassis. They were quite lousy machines until the Swedes took out Italian engines and replaced them with Volvo truck/bus engines, thus creating a fairly good quality product. When the Swedes eventually did not any more need all of these, many Y1 railbuses were sold. They are now used not only in Sweden, but also in Norway, Serbia, Croatia, Kosovo and Uruguay. Here we see one of them as Železnice Srbije (Serbian state railways) class 710. Picture from Niš, Serbia 11.1.2018 by Timo Varshukov.

Two Serbian Railways electric locomotives. The bigger one on the right is the same class 461 as in the picture above. The one on the left is a four axle class 441 locomotive. Also the 441 is based on a Swedish design by ASEA, but these Yugoslavian machines were built on ASEA's license by Končar Group, TŽV Janko Gredelj, Đuro Đaković and MIN Niš in 1968-87. For a better picture of such a locomotive, see our Slovenian section.
