At the time when the Praha to Yiwu service departed, in late July (see Hors d’Oeuvres reports on 20 July and 4 August 2017), it was announced that there would soon be a complementary westbound service. This departed from Yiwu on 9 September (see photo) and reached the METRANS terminal in Praha-Uhříněves on the 24th. InterRail Holding, the operator of this service, plans now to realise four westbound runs in total. The second one followed just a week after and reached the destination on 2 October 2017. In the second photo it is seen passing through Praha-Malešice, hauled by ČD Cargo's 163.217.
