TTR161 Czech Railways part 1 the south-east

In stock, immediate despatch
The Czech Republic, once part of the Austro Hungarian Empire then the Soviet Empire, became an independent country on the 1st January 1992. Just seven years later it was in the EU. Now separated from Slovakia the standard gauge rail network is nearly 9,550km in length, about a third is electrified. At the time of the fall of the wall the railways of Czechoslovakia were probably the slowest and most under-invested in central Europe. With the help of EU funding and a vibrant economy the railways have changed! The infrastructure on the lines radiating from Prague (the capital) and the transit routes- north/south Poland to Slovakia and Hungary, and east/west Ukraine to Germany- are modern railways. Liberalisation has produced a colourful railway with new entrants like Student Agency competing head on with the incumbent České dráhy or CD. Freight is also very varied. To the traditional transport of minerals from the Silesian industrial belt can be added agricultural products, the automotive industry and transit traffic. Because of coal, chemicals and FIAT in Poland - PKP Cargo’s newest locomotives seem to spend more time in the Czech Republic than on their native metals! We start our exploration in the south east quarter centred on Olomouc. With lots of varied traction and stock (including the new Russian sleeping car train from Nice to Moscow) there is a huge amount to enjoy. Filmed in HD. Narrated.
