Autumn Colours

There's nothing like a clean red loco to complement a fine display of autumn colours and 749.240 fitted the bill perfectly as it emerged from the avenue of trees west of Velke Svatonovice on the last day of September 2007. The 749 was a regular performer on the Trutnov line during my September 2007 visit and was hauling R955, the 07:53 Praha Smichov to Trutnov train on this occasion.
