 Slezske Zemske Drahy.
First Trip of 2018 -  May 8, 2018

SZD Slezske Zemske Drahy had the first trip of the season on May 7, 2018. Loco U57.002 operated the trip tender first outbound  AND ON THE RETURN CHIMNEY FIRST.  It was a fabulous day. 

SZD Slezske Zemske Drahy is the only Czech narrow gauge operated by Ceske Drahy and offering both vintage diesel and steam. The Ceske Drahy service trains are operated by fifty year old class 705 diesels and the steam scheduled services operate from June to August 27 on both Saturdays and Sundays and from September 2 to 16 on Saturday only.  There is an extra special trip on both November 10 and December 1.   There are two steam locos U46.002 (Resita) or U 57.001 (Skoda) operating on July 14 and August 18 and September 1, 2018. 

On September 2018 the line celebrates its 120th. anniversary with a special program. Of note is that main line standard gauge loco 464.202 will operate a special train to Tremsna from Ostrava via Opava and Krnov and back. This gives a chance to ride both standard and narrow gauge steam the same day. It will be wellworth planning to come.  

The trains leaves Tremesna v Slezsku at 1040arriving Osoblaha at 1203 The return trip leaves Osoblaha at 1510 arriving Tremesna at 1641 to connect with the Ceske Drahy 1643 to Krnov, Ostrava and Olomouc..

To get to Tremesna you go by train from Praha to Olomouc, then connecting train to Krnov and finally a local train to Tremesna. Ceske Drahy regular Trains connect with the steam trains. We recommend staying in the Clarion Hotel in Olomouc overnight before the steam day.
