Hors d'oeuvres - the latest, most interesting news

This part of our website has been prepared to extend our Railvolution news service. Its objective is to offer you snippets of the latest, most interesting news, accompanied by photos. On one hand this will let you to have a sneak preview of what the forthcoming number of Railvolution will contain. On the other, it will enable our editorial staff to provide you with information that is at their fingertips – and why waste exciting pieces of news while waiting until we have the printed version of the magazine ready for distribution? What is more, on the website pages we are in a position to publish photos for which there will be insufficient space in the printed magazine!

Please bear in mind that it is not our intention to 'digitalise' Railvolution! The printed magazine will still continue, with its full range of articles and news items. But we hope that you enjoy this new offering, and that it will stimulate your interest in our unique publication.

At the end of April 2016 CZ LOKO completed the comprehensive modernisation of the first of its ex-SNCB Class 12 freight electrics at the ČMŽO Přerov works. These machines are to be used by CZ LOKO as a leasing fleet. Early in May what is now known as the EffiLiner 3000 made its first dynamic tests using the electrified test track at the works.
