East Meets West

Double headed electrics were fairly rare around Ceska Trebova but some interesting pairings did turn up occasionally. This picture shows 123.013 from Usti nad Labem depot piloting Ostrava's 163.004 on an eastbound freight approaching Parnik, between Dlouha Trebova and Ceska Trebova on 07 June 2006. As well as coming from depots at opposite ends of the country, the locos are from different generations as well. The 123s were built in 1971 while the 163s date from the mid 1980s onwards.
