The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Built by Electroputere Craiova in Romania, under licence from ASEA (I thought they looked rather like Sweden's Rc types). Class 40 are 5, 100 kW (6, 839 hp) Co-Co locomotives. A total of 45 of these locomotives were delivered to Bulgaria.
