Border Crossings: Bosnia-Herzegovina - Serbia

Jump to navigationJump to search

(Bijeljina -) Velino Selo ŽRS - Sremska Rača Nova ŽS (- Šid)

[D] ŽS operates to Bijeljina; there is no connection to the rest of the railway system of Bosnia-Herzegovina. Passenger service over the whole route from Šid to Bijeljina ceased at the December 2005 timetable change. Note: this crossing was available to local passport holders only.

(Tuzla -) Zvornik Novi ŽRS - Brasina ŽS (- Ruma)

[D] This line was built in 1978 and carries ŽS freight traffic to a large works at Zvornik Novi. The route is shown wrongly, or not at all, on many maps, and runs from Rasputnica [= junction] Donja Borina, just south of Brasina on the Ruma - Zvornik Grad line, via a cross-border river bridge to Zvornik Novi. The line between onwards from Zvornik Novi towards Tuzla is of even newer construction and is fully described here.

(Višegrad -) Vardište - Mokra Gora (- Šargan Vitasi)

[D] 760mm gauge. The former narrow-gauge main line from Sarajevo to Beograd closed in 1974. This cross-border section of the Šargan Eight tourist railway opened in 2010.

Note that the normal tourist service runs only between Mokra Gora and Šargan Vitasi. Only chartered trains cover the cross-border section between Mokra Gora and Višegrad because the presence of Serbian and Bosnian border control officials must be arranged in advance.

(Požega -) Jablanica ŽS - Štrpci ŽRS - Rača ŽS (- Podgorica)

[E] The line crosses the border twice, with one station within Bosnia-Herzegovina at Štrpci. ŽS operates all trains.
