After a two-year pause I returned once more to enjoy some great GM sound, watch and listen here:

Trip through Slovenia and Zagreb, Croatia, to the Dalmatian coast. Featuring GM-diesels around Split, mainly at spots I missed during many past visits as I mostly seeked the mountains (see my video archive). Since my last visit passenger trains are now purely hauled by HZ class 2044 "Mala Karavela" (EMD GT 22 HW) as they belong to the HZ passenger company, freight by class 2062 "Licanka" (EMD G 26 C) / modernized "Turnerica" 2062-1xx.
Sadly due to lack of trains and drivers the locals between Split and Perkovic / Kastel Stari are a complete lottery at the moment. Variations within just a day included: 2044 + coaches, class 7123 "nagibni", class 7122 "Swedanin" (to Kastel Stari, then change to bus), entirely replaced by bus. But I was lucky to experience at least one GM-hauled local per day (going by it several times as well), also uphill freight 60340 was reliable as always. During my 3-day visit I caught B 15800/15801 "Adria" Budapest - Split - Budapest four times as it runs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, as well as the daily seasonal sleeper trains Zagreb - Split.
