I have a question about ŽSR coaches. In which time period was the so called "Adidas" design used? See this pic of the Roco H0 scale model:


Note: This pic is taken from the Roco website.

Thanks for your help! :-)

This colour design was introduced sometimes in 1990's, but despite searching I don't know when exactly. It was already pretty much non-existent in the beginning of 2000's. Current design was introduced in 2006.

Thanks a lot for your help!
According to the data on vagonweb.cz it has to appear sometimes between 1996 and 1999 and disappears between 2001 and 2003. Unfortunately there are some periods missing.

Modernisation of railway through Trenčín is nowadays the most photogenic railway project in Slovakia, so here are some photos.

ZSSK revives Bratislava - Košice intercity services
Monday, October 10, 2016



SLOVAKIAN national passenger operator ZSSK has confirmed it is planning to reinstate inter-city services between the capital Bratislava and the country’s second-largest city Košice from December 11

ZSSK will initially operate two return services per day on the 442km route via Zvolen, although frequencies could be increased if demand is sufficient

Just a little correction, they will run via Žilina of course, not Zvolen.

There are also interesting news concerning modernisation of railways. Slovakia is going to modernise two sections of railway from Bratislava to Czech Republic (Brno - Prague). Section Devínska Nová Ves - Malacky (20.6 km) with speed limit 200 km/h and section Kúty - CZ border (6.6 km) with speed limit 160 km/h, together 27.2 km. The works should be completed sometimes by 2020. There will be about 20 km unmodernised gap between these two sections with maximum speed mostly 140 km/h, but it is not impossible government will find some money for that section too.

This railway is used by international trains Prague - Bratislava - Budapest. This will be the first 200 km/h railway in Slovakia as well as the first this fast section on line Prague - Bratislava - Budapest.

I have no source of this information in English, sorry.

Wait, ZSSK cancelled all trains from Bratislava to Kosice or just specifically Intercity-ranked trains while continuing to operate slower services?

No this is a southern route. ZSSK had an almost hourly service via Poprad during the summer. Nice journey it is too.

We are talking about northern corridor via Žilina and Poprad. There is also southern corridor, but there are no direct trains Bratislava - Košice, you have to change in Zvolen. In the past there were also direct fast trains via Zvolen, but they weren't really used for travelling between Bratislava and Košice, because northern route, which is and was operated also by ICs, is much faster.


Until January this year ZSSK operated both Inter-City trains (faster with fewer stops) and fast trains (slower, more stops, depart every two hours). IC trains were operated commercially without subsidies, fast trains are operated with state subsidies. There are also private IC trains operated by Regiojet, which were competing with ZSSK, these still operate.

In the January ZSSK terminated its IC services on Bratislava - Žilina - Košice route, because they were not profitable and continued only with subsidised fast trains. The private Regiojet continues operating its ICs.

Starting from December this year ZSSK is resuming its IC service on Bratislava - Žilina - Košice route, although in smaller scale than before - just two pairs of trains in both directions. Regiojet also continues its IC service.
