Line 140 Karlovy Vary - Chomutov

This was the last diesel worked trunk route in the Czech Republic but it's now electrified. Most of my pictures were taken in diesel days before the railway has lost much of its character. The line follows the winding Ohri valley from Klasterec to Vojkovice but then takes a shortcut over a range of hills to Karlovy Vary. Until the electrification work got underway it was a superb line to photograph with double track, semaphore signals at several stations, gorgeous scenery, regular 749 hauled fast passengers and 751 worked freights. The gallery now includes some pictures of electric workings.
