Late Freight

After a couple of days of poor weather, 29 April 2005 started with a stroke of good luck. Not only was the sky clear blue but train Nex58302/3 was running an hour late, allowing me to get an early morning shot on the big curve north of Brezova u Broumova. The Tyniste nad Orlici to Mezimesti line then hosted a couple of freight trains in each direction daily with most of the traffic being exchanged with Polish Railways at Mezimesti. Nex58302/3 was a long distance working leaving Ceske Budejovice at 17:00 the previous day and scheduled to arrive at Mezimesti at 07:40. The train was booked for class 749 haulage although 750 258 was the regular loco during my visit to the area.
