Line 340 Brno - Uherske Hradiste

With the electrification of the Karlovy Vary to Chomutov line, this line became the last double track, diesel worked route in the Czech Republic. Much of the line runs through a relatively flat landscape but the section from Brankovice to Kyjov runs through attractive hilly country. The passenger service is shared between class 754 diesels and class 842 railcars with the units having taken over more services in recent years. The fleet of class 754s is the most colourful in the country and most engines are kept very clean. Freight traffic is virtually non-existent.
