02/05/2016: day 3 of the 2016 PTG trip to Slovenia, Croatia and Italy. The day started with a run from Bohinjska Bistrica to Most na Soči and back with the railtour attached to the Avtovlak train, with more shunting to put both locos on the front for the last run from Most na Soči. Then the railtour continued to Jesenice, where a second loco was attached for the 2.5 km run towards Hrušica. This is now a siding serving an industrial premises, but until 1967 was a through route to Tarvisio in Italy. The bridge under the main line remains intact. At this point I left the railtour - on the way back to Ljubljana it was going to traverse the branch to Naklo from Kranj but I had travelled over this previously. I had time for some lunch in a local restaurant before getting a service train back to Nova Gorica. Here I walked across the border into Italy, caught a bus across town to Gorizia Centrale, then by train via Udine and Treviso to Venezia Mestre.
