Line 037 Liberec - Cernousy

The Liberec - Cernousy line is a good place to photograph diesel hauled freight trains. Liberec depot had the last concentration of operational class 753 diesels in the Czech Republic and they were kept busy hauling freight on the route from Nymburk via Mlada Boleslav, Turnov and Liberec to Zawidow in Poland for almost a decade after the class disappeared elsewhere. The 753s increasingly gave way to pairs of 742s but class 753.7 rebuilds took over most workings in 2010. The line climbs through an attractive hilly landscape before dropping through the forests to the picturesque Smeda valley.

Line 071 Nymburk - Mlada Boleslav

The Nymburk - Mlada Boleslav line is one of the busiest non-electrified freight routes in the Czech Republic. In addition to through traffic to Poland via Liberec and Zawidow, there are many trains to or from the giant Skoda car plant at Mlada Boleslav. It’s not the most scenic route in the Czech Republic but there are a few decent positions.
