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.

  • ZSSK Takes Delivery Of More Vectrons

On 25 February 2018, 383.104, 105, 106 and 107 reached Slovakia. These are the next four Vectrons out of the batch of ten to be hired by ZSSK from S Rail Lease. This photo shows them at Kittsee, the last station prior to the Slovakian border and Bratislava-Petržalka. Their formal hand-over will result in ZSSK having seven Vectrons.

Vectron MS 383.202, carrying an EVN of S Rail Lease, made a test run near München on 23 February. Its future operator is as yet unknown, but it is quite possible that it will be used on freight services in Slovakia.

More Slovakian Open Access Railfreight On The SŽDC Network

  • More Slovakian Open Access Railfreight On The SŽDC Network

Starting in the second half of June, Express Rail started operating open access freights in the Czech Republic, using its own licence. This is the third Slovakian operator to do so, following in the footsteps of PSŽ and SŽDS. On average three times per week, Express Rail hauls trains of coke originating in Poland and bound for Romania, this being a steady market for a number of operators and forwarders. Haulage in Slovakia and the Czech Republic is provided by Express Rail’s 189 845, shown here at Ostrava-Svinov on 29 July 2013 waiting to return to Slovakia once another train of coke is ready. On this occasion it had to wait a couple of days. Another Slovakian locomotive, ZSSK’s 362.005, is passing through the station heading EC 131 "Varsovia" Warszawa - Budapest.
