Silviu Darlea reports frrom Romania:
At Arad depot all class 900 Malaxa railcars are out of service. In service are only the modernised class 1000 Malxas with Volvo engines and Allison gear box. From May 1st they will be use on the Arad – Timisoara main line as Regio Train 2608 and 2611 because CFR Calatori due deep crise and luck of money have no the posibility to refurbish the passenger coaches. Another line (electrified) where are use such trains is Arad Curtici. I sent you a picture made yesterday in Soforonea (an intermediare station in Arad Curtici main line).
