Welcome to "Phil's Loco Photos"

Part two of trip takes me back to Bratislava with a direct flight from Liverpool and one night there, very foggy on arrival! I left early on first train of day to Prievidza and waited there for over two hours for the hauled train Horná Štubňa which was a DMU, but it was hauled from there to Vrútky. After some top 163 power I made my way from Žilina to Ostrava and four nights in Mercure. Found large shopping centre near Ostrava střed which had good choice of places to eat. I returned to Žilina next morning and after getting white Vectron on Regiojet I did the branch Zwardoň to make a very quick visit into Poland! Next day down to Kojetín as the Brno - Frenštát pod Radhoštěm weekend train was running and got me a nice load of new track. The afternoon was busy with a few winning locos. New Years day say me back to Žilina and east as far as Štrba which was new track for me. Off to Poland next morning and took a weekend only IC to Wisła Głębce as a new bit of track, zero at end of branch so returned with EMU to Wisła Uzdrowisko to keep warm and find food! I got warm in Katowice and the new IC EMY to Zabrze for three night stay. I took early train to Opole Główne and then to Warszawa and back via CMK and after a trip to Gliwice back to hotel. Very nice surprise next morning when ex works EP08-007 rolled in on northbound IC, so taken to Poznan and then back via via Środa Wlkp, Ostrów Wlkp, Kępno, Lubliniec, Gliwice and Zabrze. Very early start next day to get to Wrocław and then pick up the PR hauled turn to Szklarska Poręba Górna. Once back at Wrocław a very successful run of six new locos. One night in Ibis Styles and them a chance to do the hauled turn to Kudowa-Zdrój which ran as a bank holiday, the town was dead! After an hour back in Wrocław I took the ČD 163 turn on train R6288 to Pardubice. Next day was at Hradec Králové on 163 turns and then to Praha for three nights. One day around České Budějovice on 242 and 362 and the new track to Tanvald next day. Final day around Olomouc and then new diesel track on line 341 and my last night was in Brno and then flight back home
