A Grumpy Saturday

Saturday 1 October – and the Czechs’ were throwing some shindig at Olomouc which offered the promise of some tasty ‘grumpy’ action with three loud 749/751s booked out. There were additionals running from both Brno and Veseli n M up to Olomouc, then a further round trip between Olomouc and Domaslov on the line towards Opava. Some chuff was also involved but I elected to scoop a pair of 163s whilst that was boiling up.

It was detached here from the goggle and 0802 Brno – Frenstadt service train that it had been pushing from Brno! The 721 on the right was also working some charter, it all happens in CZ…

cd_hanzalik_749263_omcThe open day was a rather cramped affair and required far more patience than I have to get any real phots, here is Hanzalik’s (silenced) 749263 inside the shed. This was an unexpected appearance, working with 751010 between Prostejov and Olomouc in both directions. I can only assume Mr Hanzalik, being Czech, wanted in on the T478.1 action, and who could blame him?!

Having done ‘010 in the morning, I took 751002 back on the 1608 Olomouc to Veseli nad Moravou Additional which is seen here on arrival before being shunted to its home in the roundhouse.
