Hi,

Narrow and standard gauge trains around Jindřichův Hradec and along Lužnice River including JHMD steamer U46.101 (ex PKP Px48-1916 (F. Dzierźyńskiego, Chrzanów, 1955)) plus ČD 242 and 754, also in old liveries.

Roni,

That was really nice. trains and scenery and good camera work. My favorite is the U46101. I noticed steam era water columns and a working semaphore. I put it up on my big monitor. Thank You,

Hi,

Thanks! :)

Yes, there are still a few semaphore signals active in Czechia on secondary mainlines and branchlines, but they get fewer and fewer. Here is a not completely current list, red ones are endangered / already gone in the meantime:

The water columns on the JHMD narrow gauge lines have been reactivated in recent years as they increased tourist steam trains during the season. This engine used is not originally from that line, but it was bought from Poland in 2005 and restored to running order.
