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

I had walked the entire length of the Zelecnicni Most from east to west, had seen no trains whatsoever, and was just turning back when I got lucky and caught this. Okay, so it's a railbus and not a proper train, but I was still happy to get it.

DPP #7158 At Narodni Divadlo, Prague, CZ, 2007

Here's another shot taken at Narodni Divadlo. Although I didn't notice it until the last second, the police make for a better composition of the photo.

This is a great intersection for tram photos! This is my first-ever color tram photo with the Ikoflex! I hope you like it, even if it has the same exposure problems as the other shots on this roll, plus a massive light leak on the right which I had to crop out. See my "Vaclavske Namesti In The Rain" shot for more details of this. For the couple who I inadvertantly caught in the crosswalk, if you contact me and give me your permission I can unblur your faces for you, if you want.

This is over the Most Legii from Narodni Divadlo. The Hladova Zed, or Hunger Wall, can be seen on Petrin Hill in the snow.

This shot is taken facing the opposite direction from the Narodni Divadlo shots. We're looking towards Ujezd, and the Hladova Zed is visible on the left on Petrin Hill. These photos aren't exactly in order now since I had to repost this one with corrections. I took this one between the Narodni Divadlo shots and the Ujezd shot. :-)

Praha Hlavni Nadrazi In A Snowy Haze, B&W version,…

01 Sep 2007 3 2 560
I originally shot this with Ektachrome E100GX, one of the nicest color films you can buy if you can't get Kodachrome 64 or 200. On this particular day, though, during the Prague snowstorm two weekends ago, Hlavni Nadrazi, the main train station, was so obscured in the snow that the scene was, for practical purposes, a black and white scene. Seeing the scans of my two brackets, I decided to go with the lighter and hazier one for dramatic effect, and oddly, convert it to black and white. Why not? I think it looks better this way. Maybe some of you can tell me what you think, and I can consider uploading other versions of this.

DB Intercity (or possibly Eurocity) Seen From Berl…

I attempted a number of shots from the Berlin Television Tower, but regrettably this was one of the only ones that came out because the windows were very dirty that day. I can't tell if this train was an Intercity or a Eurocity, but it would be one or the other, as that's DB Intercity equipment, which is also used on the Eurocities.

Class 471 and 971(?) EMUs In The Snow, Masarykovo…

During the recent snowstorms (actually back in February), I couldn't resist taking some train photos, so I walked and rode trams around Prague to see what I could get. I took this shot in Masarykovo Nadrazi.

While I was in Masarykovo Nadrazi taking my February snow pictures, I finally got around, also to photographing one of the 971 EMU's builder plates. I obviously like builder plates since they're a very reliable (usually) of knowing the straight historical facts about a piece of rolling stock, provided the plate is original, anyway. I especially like plates that are exotic, although it's debatable whether Skoda or CKD would fall into that category.

In addition to the new Class 471s and 971s, Masarykovo still hosts services operated by the older 451 and 452 classes, although they are gradually dwindling in number. Hlavni Nadrazi is generally the better place to spot "pantographs" if that's really what you're after.

This was my first ever shoot at the north end of Praha Hlavni Nadrazi, and it was, for the most part a success, even if I had little light and even less film to do it with. This is a local railbus service departing for Roztoky U Prahy, unless I'm mistaken.

Praha Hlavni Nadrazi, like most big city stations in the world, has a few switchers waiting at any given time to switch coaches, and Hlavni Nadrazi has the advantage of having an all-electric fleet. Most of these are Class 111s, but this one is a 110, which is a bit rarer. The bluish hue of this photo makes it look like it was bitterly cold, but in reality it wasn't so bad.

Here's a view of Praha Hlavni Nadrazi from the north, although regrettably there wasn't much getting around the fence and still getting such an expansive shot. Safety first, I guess.

I also took some tram photos during the February snowstorms, some of which I uploaded previously, which this being the latest batch. I shot this one at Jiriho z Podebrad.

Here's yet another Jiriho z Podebrad shot, but facing in the other direction, giving us a faint look (back in the haze of snow) of Kostel Nejsvetejsiho Srdce Pane, or the Church of the Most Sacred Heart Of Our Lord.

DPP #7216 On Seifertova, Prague, CZ, 2007

01 Sep 2007 258
I took this actually as I was taking the Ceske Drahy photos on the North throat of Hlavni Nadrazi, as the tram tracks go right under the railway tracks. This was maybe the best of the series, in spite of being of a tram and not a train! Dusk was falling, so it has a great blue twilight look to it, which is mostly authentic.

DPP #6720 In The Snow, Flora, Prague, CZ, 2007

I shot this one in Flora, where the Palac Flora shopping centre is, over out of sight to the right.
