Today's route: bus from Tuzla hotel to Tuzla station; Tuzla - Brčko - Gunja (Croatia) - Drenovci - Vinkovci - Šid (Serbia) - Bijeljina (Bosnia); bus Bijeljina to Tuzla
A round trip day to travel over two awkward border crossings. Brčko - Gunja sees just the one train pair and is new to the 2002/2003 timetable. Šid to Bijeljina sees four train pairs per day but is only available for local passport holders, hence the requirement for special border formalities. The branch from Rasputnica [=junction] Rača to Sremska Rača, shown on some maps and indeed on the JŽ timetable map, is intact at the junction end but extremely overgrown.
