TTR203 Czech Railways part 7 Along the German border

In stock, immediate despatch

We travel over  lines 130 and 140 from the important city and junction of Ústí nad Labem to Karlovy Vary , then onward to the border station with Germany at Cheb.  Ústí nad Labem is a city of nearly 100,000 on the Elbe (Labe in Czech). The north south railway through the city is a very important connection between Italy and Austria,  eastern and northern Germany and onwards to Scandinavia.  The main east to west transit route runs south of us from Prague to Cheb through Plzen – Czech Transit Corridor 3 known domestically as routes 170 / 171. A transit route it may be but west of Plzen the remainder of the route to Cheb (line 170) is largely single track.  The line from Ústí nad Labem to Cheb is, on the other hand, double track or better throughout. It passes through the south Bohemia coalfields,  is busy with coal traffic and traffic from the industries spawned by coal, such as refining and metal processing.  Heading west we visit: Teplice, Řetenice (really just a suburb of Teplice itself  with a large housing estate and a glassworks).  Bílina, where the whole town was demolished to make way for a lignite mine, Most, Chomutov, Klášterec nad Ohří, Karlovy Vary- the second most visited tourist destination in the country, before arriving at Cheb where we are joined by the international transit route from Austria and Slovakia. This is the border station with Germany -a great place to watch trains as they are classified before their journey west. RT 75 mins Narrated. Published August 2015 ©FHP 2015
