Starting on 8 May 2018, ČD’s Class 193s have been venturing much deeper into Germany than in the recent past, when since December 2017 they only reached as far as Dresden or Leipzig hauling EC expresses from Praha. Now, they have daily diagrams, one to Berlin, the other to Berlin and Hamburg. This photo was taken on 8 May showing 193 290 heading EC 175 "Robert Schumann" to Praha hl. n. upon departure from the low level in Berlin Hbf. Starting on 10 June 2018 it is envisaged that the Class 193s will be used on all EC diagrams between Praha, Berlin and Hamburg, as originally intended.
