Czechia - part 2

More photos from Czhechia
Line A metro line, which opened in 1978 and still using the Soviet made 81-71 metro cars
81-71M trains are a modernized variant of the old Soviet 81-717 trains with new traction motors, technical equipment, interiors, and exteriors. They have operated on Lines A and B since 1996. The modernization was conducted by Škoda Transportation and ČKD between 1996 and 2011 (Wikipedia)

Ice hockey is popular in Czhechia

Praha Masarykovo nádraží (Prague Masaryk railway station) was the first railway station in the city to serve steam trains, and the second oldest railway station in Prague (the first is Praha-Dejvice, formerly Bruska on the Lány Horse-drawn Railway). The station was designed by Antonín Jüngling and came into service in 1845. Nowadays the station only serves regional and suburban trains, because the larger Praha hlavní nádraží does not have enough capacity. The station is currently being reconstructed and will become the terminus of the planned railway connection with Václav Havel Airport Prague. (Wikipedia)

Today I'm continuing my journey on the left side of the Labe/Elbe railway
Ústí nad Labem-Neštěmice

Ústí nad Labem-Mojžíř

Bývalá továrna na celulózu a papírna


A friendly cat


There is traffic on the other side of the Labe river

There is even freight rail traffic


Děčín-Prostřední Žleb

Děčín-Čertova Voda

Dolní Žleb zastávka
The regional line Decin-Rumburg (both located in Czechia). For some reason, the service is operated with German Class 642, probably because the line is passing by several stations in Germany.

There is one more stop in Czechia - Dolní Žleb, before reaching Germany, but it was almost impossible to reach that station by car.
On my way back, I can spot the reconstruction of the railway bridge connecting the Decin-Dresden railway with the right bank Elbe/Labe railway towards Kolin
