In my previous gallery from Ukraine we finished by taking a photo of a DPL-1 push-pull train running between Kolomiya and Ivano-Frankivsk. The following day we had to wake up early to be able to pursue a D1 multiple unit travelling from Ivano-Frankivsk to Stryi. This line is a part of a line connecting the three railways traversing the Eastern Carpathian Mountains, starts in Ivano-Frankivsk where it connects to the railway to Rakhiv over the Tatar-pass (Yablonitsky Pass). Its next connection is at Stryi, where it intersects with the main railway from Lviv (in Russian, Lvov) to Chop over Lavochne, Volovets and Mukacheve, using the Volovets Pass. Before Stryi, the line becomes electrified and continues in that manner until it reaches Sambir station (or Sambor, in Russian), where it intersects the Lviv to Uzhhorod line over the Uzhok pass. Though unelectrified, it goes on further into a rather provincial area and branches in two: a short line ends in the village of Nizhankovytsy and another one, after a break-of-gauge to normal, goes on to Poland and connects to the Polish main line network at Zagórz. This is the direction in which we are going to travel in this album.

After a last shot of a class D1 trainset we had to travel on. The Google Streetview car managed to take so nice a freight train shot at this location I had to cite it here:

We are leaving the Northern ramp of the Uzhok Pass behind (the actual heavy climbing was only about to start, but that part of the track is directly next to the Polish border and there are no roads leading that way - also, no interesting viadukts either). The trains coming from Uzhhorod on the Southern ramp will meet this train coming from Lviv at Syanki station, near the top of the pass.

After Volosyanka station the railway continues to gain altitude for a short time but then it has to traverse the Uzh valley on the longest bridge of the line, after which the tracks continue to criss-cross on the right-hand side valley side until they climb the pass. It is no mistake it is often called the Semmering of the Carpathians - not only is it probably one of the finest mountain tracks MÁV has ever built but it starts in exactly the same way, with a big viadukt crossing the river, as the Nordrampe of the Semmering near Payerbach, at the Schwarza-Viadukt:
