The railroad has a long history in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The first railway line was opened for traffic in 1872. It was a standard-gauge track from Banja Luka to Dobrljin, built as a section of the Istanbul main route which was, in accordance with the Turkish plans, supposed to connect Istanbul and Vienna. Mostar is almost represents the far south end of the main railroad line, with only three stations further south in Capljina, Metkovic and ending in Ploce, Croatia.
Trains are not well used today here. There are few regular lines within the country, and they seem to diminish more and more each day. I love the railway, but even I have to admit buses and cars are a more prominent way of travel in the country.
