The Czech government has started today's government meeting in Ústí nad Labem, a meeting outside of Prague, already in the train. They used the conference carriage of the Czech Railways. It was attached to the regular morning train to Ústí.

A freight trains crashed head on into another freight train that was standing on the rails nearby Ústí nad Labem today. The engineer is dead.



The engineer passed the stop signal and unfortunately the train did not stopped after the general stop applied by the traffic control. The engineer also did not respond to the radio calls. There's an investigation into why the general stop that should put on halt all the trains in the area did not work.

The Regional Court in Brno cancelled the € 1 mln fine that the Czech Competition Authority imposed on the Czech Railways in connection to the RaiJets acquisition.

The Competition Authority will appeal the decision.

Technicalities.

The Competition Authority decision claimed that ČD did change the tender without publicly announcing it (because they changed the number of bought sets), while the ČD maintained that they just "enlarged" (which is bit strange as they reduced the number of the units) the original order.

The court said that the company can be punished only when it is proven that the order has been changed from the original tender and it maintained that the CA did not prove that.

I am not having the details and the article is not providing them, so I am not really sure about this reasoning. Seems to me like big fuss about not relevant things. What I think about this whole issue is that that there was not really any transparent tender, but the offer was not bad so they took it, they would not get that kind of offer in a tender.

Czech Railways is required to pay 1,2 billion CZK (around €40 mln) to the Škoda Transportation after an arbitrage between the two companies as a compensation for the late payments for the 109e locos. Czech railways will appeal the arbitrage decision at court as the delivery of the locos was substantially delayed which made CR decide not to keep to the payment schedule.

The Škoda InterPartners EMUs has been operating for a month already.

https://zeleznicar.cd.cz/zeleznicar/...lomouci/-9430/
http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/t...r-service.html
Quote:
CZECH REPUBLIC: The first two Škoda Transportation Class 660.1 InterPanter electric multiple-units entered regular service on the Olomouc – Přerov – Břeclav – Brno route on November 4, following a handover ceremony at Olomouc station.

Derived from RegioPanter EMUs ordered for regional services, the 160 km/h low-floor dual-system InterPanter is the first Czech-built long-distance EMU. Changes from the RegioPanter design include a single wide double-leaf door per side, rather than two on the regional units. Passenger amenities include a PRM TSI-compliant accessible interior, air-conditioning, electronic seat reservations, power sockets and wi-fi.

ČD ordered four three-car Class 660.0 and 10 five-car Class 660.1 InterPanter EMUs in August 2014. Six are scheduled to replace push-pull trainsets on Olomouc – Brno services from December, with the rest to enter service on the Praha – Pardubice – Česká Třebová – Brno corridor in spring 2016.

Czech government gave the final approvement for the transition of the more than 1600 railway stations from České Dráhy onto the rail road manager SŽDC. The transfer has already been approved by the EU Commission. ČD will receive around CZK 3.2 billion from SŽDC, which is around € 120 million.

SŽDC has put into operation another section of automatic train guiding system on the Děčín - Břeclav corridor. The following sections of Břeclav - Olomouc - Ostrava and Česká Třebová - Olomouc - Ostrava have already operated under the automatic train guiding system.

The system is also used in the suburban rail traffic in Praha and Ostrava.

The system allows the train to be operated automatically, without that the engineer would have to interfere. In fact the train should be able to operate without an engineer. The speed and acceleration are determined automatically and the train operates autonomously, unless the engineer steps in.

ČD operates many units that are able to use this system. The main benefit of the system is electricity savings of around 4 %.

The Czech private passenger trains operator RegioJet finished in 2015 in black numbers for the first time. It had 3 million customers and grew 26 % in 2015.


RegioJet has also introduced couchette carriages on the Prague - Ostrava - Košice line.


It netted a profit of CZK 40 mln in 2015, compared to CZK -40 mln in the year 2014.

The other private operator Leo Express announced that it did end in a loss in 2015.
