Hello Pavle,
Wow. I didn't know that the Orient Express also passed Cuprija. Considering this famous train ran until May 19, 1977, perhaps you have seen it pass by one day? You may have even ridden part of the route with it.
I know that this train was not only very luxurious but the ride was also extremely expensive. Yet the Orient Express continues to capture the imagination of many.
At the very least you've already stood on a platform that train once drove past :)
In recent decades, train journeys in Europe have become a lot more expensive compared to cheaper flights.
Many night trains have been abolished over the years. However, they are trying to change that. For example, there is again a night train from Brussels to Vienna. However, much more expensive than the plane.
When I was young I was able to visit many countries in Europe by train quite cheaply. Also the former Yugoslavia (Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro). However, some routes were by bus. I didn't get to North Macedonia until much later.
Another good picture with the lines of the rail tracks and platforms converging in the distance.
I see nobody in the photo. Does Cuprija have many connections with other places in Serbia today?
Best regards, Paul

Ja sam se u Cupriju doselio sa pokojnom suprugom i sinom 1978.godine, dosli smo iz Nisa gde smo ziveli.
Supruga je bila Doktor medicine.
Cuprija je sa drugim gradovima u Srbiji, povezana regionalnim putevima, auto-putem i zeleznicom.
Brzi vozovi prolaze pored grada novom prugom a stara prolazi kroz staru zeleznicku stanicu i obavlja regionalni saobracaj.
