Former JŽ 760 mm gauge locomotive 83-173 was built in 1949 by the "Đuro Đakovic" works in Slavonski Brod (now in Croatia) and rebuilt in 2000 at Zrenjanin. Here it is seen working a special train on the "Šarganska Osmica", a restored railway near Užice. This is on the route of the now-closed main line between Beograd and the Dubrovnik via Sarajevo. This picture was taken on on part of a trip organised by "GIL Incentive- und Bildungsreisen" of Heidelberg, Germany.
