Line 240 Brno - Jihlava

A superb cross country route that winds it's way across the grain of the landscape west of Brno. The line follows a sawtooth profile with plenty of curves and gradients and several major bridges, all set in the attractive rural Moravian landscape. Brno based class 754s worked many of the passengers. The remaining locals were shared between class 742 locos and veteran class 850 railcars until class 854 units has diluted things a bit. There is a little freight traffic, particularly at the west end of the line.
