Loco Vice Railcar

742 076 is seen on the curve east of Brankovice on train Os2711, the 12:20 from Brno to Vrbovce, just over the border in Slovakia. The train was one of many on the line booked for a class 842 unit so getting a loco was a bonus. The train is composed of refurbished class 020 railcar trailers, the same vehicles normally used with class 842 units. Unfortunately the suspension on the 842s is tuned differently to that on the trailers, causing them to jolt and sway violently. When I travelled in a set behind a 742, they rode much better.
