Serbia's first rail service in 18 years from the capital Belgrade to Kosovo has been forced to stop at the border. Kosovo's president had said he would not allow the train to enter the territory, calling the rail service a deliberate provocation.

An old railway station in the middle of Belgrade railway junction. Railway traffic in Topcider is managed by manual methods. The switches turned manually. Trains run on a bad tracks. Bad rail joints cause real sound of old railway. A lot of freight trains in one place. Interesting night work and railway events in the station. All of this allows you to enjoy 46 minutes of freight and passenger trains traffic. Topcider Railway Station, September and October 2017.
An overnight journey from Belgrade to Budapest by elderly Serbian sleeping-car. The car is old & somewhat decrepit, but the beds are comfy and sheets clean. It also ran on time. Serbian & Hungarian passport control wake you at the border, but you do get some sleep! Note that as at summer 2015, this train appears to have couchettes but now no sleeper - not entirely surprising given the Serbian sleeping-car's age.

A brief look at Serbian trains, filmed at Belgrade main station. First we see a handsome looking Hungarian built 4-8-0 steam loco, albeit now looking rather sad and neglected in its faded blue livery. Next we see some 25kV Class 444/441 ASEA built electric locos which seem to haul most passenger trains and finally two night trains - the 2145 to Budapest and the 2150 to Skopje

The Tibetan Nomads traveled from Bar in Montenegro to Podgorica and to Belgrade over the celebrated Bar to Belgrade railway which is one of Europe's most spectacular train rides. It's a marvel of engineering, with 254 tunnels and 435 bridges on the 296-mile journey from the Serbian capital to the Adriatic. Construction of the line started in the 1950s but only completed in 1976, opened by President Tito himself.
It's one of Europe's most scenic train journeys, from Bar on Montenegro's Adriatic coast to Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, via the causeway over Lake Skadar, Montenego's capital Podgrodica, the world's highest railway viaduct at Mala Rijeka, the Vrbnica monastery, the Potpec dam on the Lim River and more. See https://www.seat61.com/belgrade-to-bar-railway.htm But be warned, at around 00:02:40 it includes the infamous "Uh-oh, we've hit a horse" incident... The video was shot on the first part of a 48 hour overland journey from Montenegro to London by train. Fortunately, we were a mere 45 minutes late at Belgrade, and I easily made my connection with the overnight sleeper to Budapest.

Historically, the train link between Belgrade and Sarajevo was probably the most important one in the Balkans. Today the service lacks some of the comforts of yesteryear.The restaurant car is Serbian, but both of the other cars are Bosnian: one comes from the Serb-dominated political entity Republika Srpska while the other is from the Muslim-Croat Federation. The locomotive is changed every time the train crosses the border, slowing down the trip significantly. But the new train connection is symbolic -- showing that the former enemies are trying to improve their relationship.
VICE Serbia explores how pirates, mostly through deals made with international boat crews, illegally load off oil, ores or fertilizers that they later sell on black market. Such activities are often followed with great risks and violence between rival gangs is quite common. The Danube flow through Serbia is 600 kilometers long and a lot of international transport goes along the river. Serbia has been blacklisted by a number of international companies because of illegal river trade or, more commonly said, piracy.
