CD 810 Class Railbus On Zelecnicni Most, Prague, CZ, 2007

Old Flickr Rail Photos


These are basically the rail photos from my old Rail Photos Set on Flickr. When I found the Greasemonkey script for migration I started immediately, although it could be awhile before everything is moved here, if ever. (Under co

Here's our train back to Prague, although in reality it's passing through Krivoklat on the way to pick up our train. In the end the train was closer to 42 cars, rather than 3!! That's a record for my train travels, actually. The locomotive, ex-CSD 498.022 is a Ceskoslovenske Drahy Class 498 4-8-2, the same class as 498.106, "Albatros," which set a Czech speed record for steam locomotives at 162Km/h in 1964.

This shot gives an impression of the immense size of our train. You actually can't see it all here, as three cars are behind me, and many more are hidden around the curve up ahead. All that you can see of 498.022 is the water vapor plume.

Here's the rear end of our train, looking around the curve and into the tunnel in the opposite direction, even further away from Prague than Krivoklat. :-)

CSD Coal Stove, Krivoklat, Bohemia (CZ), 2007

01 Sep 2007 256
Ceskoslovenske Drahy used coal stoves for heating trains until surprisingly late in their history, and this particular passenger car wasn't built until the early 1940s, although it looks 100 years older because of all the wooden construction, and if you could see the outside, it's 4-wheel undercarriage, devoid of modern trucks or bogies. Rolling stock like this could be seen in Czech movies as late as the 1980s, although I don't know the precise year that they were pulled from regular service.

Here's another shot that I took of 498.022 in Beroun, on the way back to Prague. Trains from Krivoklat to Prague have to be turned here, as the track layout forms a wye, so here 498.022 was being turned.

Tatra T3 Tram, Olomouc, Moravia (CZ), 2006

01 Sep 2007 234
I unfortunately I didn't get the number of this tram, but it works for the transit agency of the city of Olomouc, Moravia, in the Czech Republic, and it's a Tatra T3, I know that much. The building to the right of it is the city museum of Olomouc.

I saw this coming, and took the shot. The trams blurred somewhat, though, so I'm not 100% certain of all the numbers.

This is a so-so pan shot that I took of a T3 in Namesti Bratri Synku. It's not perfect, of course, since the tram itself blurred slightly, and I got a bad light leak down the middle, but it's a Lomo so I figured I'd post it to Flickr to see what people think. :-)

This one's got better clouds, better light, some tram, some bridge, and some castle. What the ...., it's a Lomo of a tram. :-)

I've seen this shot taken before, not only from here but also from the Most Legii, which actually works better because it's closer to the Hradcany. Unfortunately, the bridge is obscuring the numbers on this Tatra T3 double set.

This shot is too blurred to identify this tram's number, but it's definitely a Tatra T3 double set.

I just liked the composition on this one, and the lighting. :-)

This is one of my favorites, in my opinion one of my most "classic" of tram shots. :-)

I like this shot, too, with the slight blur of motion.

This is a variation on the first tram shot that I ever uploaded to Flickr, which some of you will remember. In this shot, though, there are three, instead of two trams. :-)
