Following the successful event last Spring with 433.002 in the east Czech Republic, we have been asked by the participants to organise another steam special.

Although steam ended in the Czech Republic in 1979 there are still many lines which retain their original condition.

We have been able to find suitable routes in the area of Liberic. Consequently we would like to invite you to the north-west area of the country where the passenger train engine 475.179 (based at Usti nad Labem) and green Y-type carriages (high-roofed design built in Goerlitz, 1968-1984) are available.

Express passenger trains (Czech ‘R’ = Rychlik) have been part of the daily scene even on branch lines on the CD for decades. Express passenger service, consisting of two rail cars, still exists for large distance passenger trains on branch lines.

The special leaves Usti nad Labem on Saturday 22,10,05 and runs via Benesov, Ceska Lipa, Jablonne, Krizany (highest location) to Liberec. Following a run to Krizany and back, the train will spend the night in Liberic.

The return trip leaves Liberec on the Sunday morning for Srni by Ceska Lipa, from where it runs via Ustek, Ploskovice and Litomerice to Usti nad Labem.

The route offers numerous opportunities for high quality photographs and videos and you'll get good value for their money.
