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.

  • RegioJet’s Ex-SBB Carriages Moved To Krnov

On 28 September 2016 RJ moved 11 of its Class B carriages, acquired earlier in the year from SBB, from Hranice na Moravě to the KOS (Krnovské opravny a strojírny) works at Krnov. They were hauled by EŽ Praha’s 740.609 and 655 diesel locomotives. These photos were taken in the vicinity of Valšov and Milotice nad Opavou. The carriages will now be subjected to some adjustments in readiness for use starting in December 2016, when RJ plans to expand the range and number of its services.

Class Re 460 Prototype Modernisation Completed

  • Class Re 460 Prototype Modernisation Completed

In early December 2014 the SBB works in Yverdon-les-Bains completed the modernisation of 460 084, the project taking about a year to realise. This photo was taken on 8 December 2014. The main visible differences between 460 084 and non-modernised Re 460s is the use of gloss varnish and the application of SBB logos to the front ends. The second modernisation, which will include installation of the new ABB-built traction converters, is expected to be completed during the first six months of 2016, and three more locomotives will follow in 2017. The batch modernisations will then probably run by 2022.
