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.

After 26 months DB group subsidiary ARRIVA vlaky restarted regular Praha suburban services. This time the service runs to the south of the city, over the 49 km between Praha hl. n. and Benešov u Prahy. ARRIVA vlaky now offers seven limited-stop train pairs each weekday, provided using ex-DB Class 628 DMU 845.001. The first two photos, taken at Praha hl. n. on the first day of services, 29 February 2016, show trains with reporting numbers Sp 1387 and Sp 1389 bound for Benešov u Prahy. The second photo also includes ČD’s EMU 471.073 at the same platform, waiting between trains Os 2542/2549, which are all-stations services on the same route. The third photo was taken at Benešov u Prahy on 25 February, during a presentation run. On 5 March 2016 ARRIVA vlaky is to start an express weekend return service from Praha via Olomouc, Uherské Hradiště and Bylnice to Trenčín in Slovakia.

The first venture, which began on 23 September 2013, involves eight pairs of limited stop local trains between Praha and Kralupy nad Vltavou (27 km), from Mondays to Fridays, using 845 001 (former 628 246). Here we see the DMU on 24 September, the photos taken at each end of the route, together with a view of the passenger accommodation. Interior was rejuvenated and passengers are offered on-board WiFi internet and a trolley service of light refreshments.

Arriva In The Czech Republic From December 2012

  • Arriva In The Czech Republic From December 2012

The Pars nova works is currently realising modifications to and re-livering ex-DB DMU 628 246, which is the first of a batch of these trains to be imported from Germany for use on services provided by Arriva`s Czech subsidiary Arriva vlaky, eventually linking Kralupy nad Vltavou, Praha and Benešov u Prahy, to be introduced from December 2012. Arriva`s objective is to develop a series of routes radiating from the Czech capital serving various destinations on non-electrified lines, thus eliminating the need for passengers to change en route from electric to diesel local trains. Here we see 628 246, which now carries the Czech number 845.001, having new vinyls applied.
