I took this train last summer and it's "tilting" design unnerved me at the time. Very sad to hear this has happened, but it is an unusual railway line for sure. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.16.33.31 (talk) 22:57, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

"...passengers claim that the speed of the train was too excessive." I've always maintainted that these train drivers should stick to a more acceptably excessive speed! Shane.Bell (talk) 09:04, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Croat Rail disasterEdit

Dear Wiki,

Is this the rail service which takes 5 hours from Belgrade to Split? Possibly the slowest rail link in the whole of western Europe!

Last year I was in Split, a fine city worth a trip anyday, but had to fly due to 3 days travel from London by rail - simply to long and too expensive. Now this rail disater. Perhaps they were trying to speed up the service a little to fast?

Croatia is waiting to join the EU but it will have to sort out its infrastructure. Hope this does not set back Croat development. Dalmatia is well worth visiting and I can recommend it + fabulous coast. Regards,

MARK DOUGLAS London N16 5SW

5 hours from Belgrade to Split is nice given the distance (if you are correct)
this is Zagreb to Split (I don't remember the travel time)--TheFEARgod (talk) 19:02, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
