The Bulgarian State railway company BDZ starts Monday running a retro steam engine train between the capital Sofia and the suburb of Bankya.

The train would leave at 12:10 pm every day from 20 days from Sofia's Central Railroad Station.

The engine has been used for a number of movies and entertainment trips. In September 1989 it had served the famous "Orient Express" while the latter was passing through Bulgaria.

The engine has been made in 1953 in Switzerland.
