CZ July – Corpus Christi Weekend Diesels

749259 at Rakovnik after arriving with KZC’s 0909 from Praha via Beroun. It had run round its pair of Bmx trailers and pushed here to stable for the day.
When a steam ban drops something big out – 700001 recently fettled at Luzna was a very good choice to work a return to Beroun which is seen here at Rozotky u Krivoklatu pausing to cross a unit. With wooden boxes leading for the downhill trundle there wasn’t much to write home about…
Going back uphill on the 1612 Beroun – Luzna was much better! As there wasn’t a move to intercept ‘259 we leapt off at Mestecko u Krivoklatu for a unit back to Beroun – as the line twists and turns up the valley this just happened to be near perfect for a phot too
Next day was a more usual outing, taking 749006 on the Jicin then across to Turnov for a new class in 710866 on the 1332 Turnov – Semily ‘Ceskym Rajem’ summer working which this 50-year old shunter shares running dates with steam on, seen here leaving Zelzny Brod.
A couple of carts later and another Jicin afternoon photo of 749006 at Jicin prior to working the 1654 Praha. Due to engineering work on table 70, this was diverted from Vsetaty to Lysa n L where the train was combined with 749253 on the return Mseno back to Praha via Celakovice
Another summer grumpy tour that began cloudy, 749162 of IDS was the power of choice and is seen at Lomy Morina quarry, a few kms down a branch from Nucice. The jazzy stock was provided by train operator KDS, who are big fans of the paintbrush.
Passing back through Praha hl n and slight disapointment at not getting a clear run through the centre road was eased by this cheeky phot of 111035 from the corridior after it had brought in the stock of the 1145 Munich from Praha Jih CS.
Due to yet more can we/can’t we issues a number of sidings around Caslav where dropped from the itinerary and replaced by an evening run from Praha to Dobris and return which certainly suited the majority. 749162 at Dobris with some logs for company as ever!
