Bechynka - a historic railroad in Czech Republic

Post by krokodil »

This is probably the first fully electrified main line on the old continent and is still in operation with 1500 VDC.
Enjoy the "half" cabride.

It was the first electric railroad in Austria (1903), but it is not a mainline (and never was).
It is a branch line. The mainline is KFJB (Emperor Franz Josef Railroad) - connecting Vienna and Prague.
