Newcomer says hello and contributes.

Hello, this is my first post at this board! Yes, I named myself after a subway station, but I'm not even from Czechia, but from Germany.
And even worse: I'm also walking my rounds at an alternate history discussion board and I also like to plaster that with more subway maps.

Anyway, I don't want to bother you with my spamming and get right into topic. Delving deep enough into Google image search in order to compensate for my non-existent knowledge of Czech, wish fulfillment came true when I found this: A proposal for a double Esko crossrail in Prague, Smichov-Karlin and Bubny-Vrsovice.

Now I know too little Czech to seriously know how serious this is taken, but first of all, it's good that you have an S-train system know, but it's sad that it yet lacks the metro feeling I find elsewhere and not only in Germany. What do you think?

You mean this one, that's very interesting project. I'm wonder what's status now:

New Link II - city railway tunnels

Country: Czech Republic
Place: Prague
Date: 2006 - 2009
Project level: Study
Client: SŽDC, s.o., Stavební správa Praha
Designer: SUDOP PRAHA a.s., lead designer: Ing. Martin Vachtl


In the present time the railway infrastructure, where heavy suburban traffic is operated, is progressively optimizing and modernizing. Despite all the efforts to improve the situation is not always possible to enforce the ideal solution, particularly because of territorial continuity in densely built-up areas. The solution of the new necessary capacities in the central part of the Prague railway junction is practically not possible to solve in other way than underground. In the transport concept and urban documentation the central region was divided into two basic variants. Either two stations (Prague main station and Masaryk Station) or one railway station on two levels (Prague main station).

In another world where the Iron Curtain never was, metro line B might never have existed if a Smichov-Karlin underground crossrail had been built instead as the two concepts clearly cannibalized each other.

What became metro line C may well have become the light rail it was intended to become when the digging started. What about a single station at Wenceslas Square instead of the two as in our lifetime? I thought of Teatralnaya Station in Moscow where an otherwise perfect triangle gets tainted by some kind of unibrow.

Imagine there were no more Tatras in Prague...

From Railway Gazette:

KŽC awarded Praha suburban contract
22 Apr 2014

CZECH REPUBLIC: Praha urban transport authority Ropid has awarded private operator KŽC Doprava a 10-year contract to operate subsidised services on the 19 km suburban route S34 between Praha Masarykovo and Čakovice.

Although Ropid had announced plans for an open competition in January, the contract was awarded without tendering following the appointment of a new minster of transport. Other interested parties were Arriva Vlaky, Rail System and state operator ČD, which operates the other suburban services.

KŽC Doprava had launched a pilot operation on the line on October 1 2013 which ceased on February 28. Ropid paid KŽC a subsidy of KC84·26 per train-km which will now be reduced to KC76·56 per train-km, increasing by the rate of inflation.

The service will continue to be operated by a fleet of four Class 810 two-axle railcars, although the new contract requires the provision of partly low-floor vehicles and other improvements from the sixth year

One question, though this post is already 3 years old. What is the actual status of metro-trains in Prague? Are all Metrowagonmash trains refurbished?

Basically, if the first refurbished trains from 1996 are built around 1979 it´s probably time to substitute them with new trains around 2019 and not to wait until line D is in service. Do they have plans for this actually?

True, but there are no plans for new trains afaik. If Prague actually starts the D line construction, I don't think it will have enough money left for replacing 81-71's.

Because of the hoarfrost on the trolley wires, the whole tram network in the city was out of service for almost two days. Not only in Prague, also in other cities like Brno, trains were running only in limited numbers powered by diesel locomotives.
That's why:
