In this album we visit historic trains that ran in the South-Western part of Slovakia, but on our way we may have caught something a little further from the area and we definitely tried to take a photo of as many of the other trains we came across as possible. Notably this class 812 railcar with its trailer came from Levice and was on its way to Štúrovo. Unfortunately in the past ten years both the track conditions and the train lengths saw a decline.

Line 150 from Palárikovo to Zvolen is not one for which I would organize a trip in particular but we took photos along it many times during other trips. Here is the collection .

This could also be a historic train, but we just found this ballast laying train waiting at the station.

Our first historic train was a ČSD M262 type diesel-electric railcar built for the regio-express trains in the 1950s mostly. They are nicknamed Cupboard/Kredenc for the two-door entryway. The photo was taken on an interesting piece of railway line: the Leopoldov - Lužianky - Zlaté Moravce - Kozárovce railway. Its construction was influenced by the fact that all other railways in the region follow rivers: the line to Zvolne the Hron to the North-East, the line to Topo'lcianky the Žitava to the North and the line to Prievidza (and on to Handlová and Nitrianské Pravno) the Nitra also to the North, but they were only connected in the Nové Zamky region. The three sections were built in different times: the Lužianky - Leopoldov, that served the connection of Nitra and Prievidza to Bratislava in 1898, the Zlaté Moravce to Kozárovce (connecting to Zvolen) in 1912, both in the Hungarian times, while after the Vienna Awards, ČSD built the middle section in 1938.

The photo was taken on the Kozárovce - Zlaté Moravce section which is mostly unused nowadays. The middle section has a part that is revitalized by the new Nitra Jaguar/Land Rover car manufacturing plant as an industrial siding, but the rest of the line, cut in half by the new plant, will be dismantled. The third section between Lužianky and Leopoldov serving regional trains from Nitra and fast trains from Prievidza as far as Bratislava has a top speed of 100 km/h apart from the occasional restrictions in curves, so its fate is safe even in the long run.

The local railway from Sa'la to Neded was opened in 1909 to the Southern direction from the Bratislava-Nové Zámky line. Passenger traffic has been discontinued since 2003 and charters are a rare sight as well. It could have been connected with the Komarno - Kolárovo railway, but it will never happen now as it is very close to the main-line like Komarno - Nové Zámky railway. We might never see timetabled trains here anymore and one can never know which charter will have been the last one on the line.

After seeing the railcar around Neded we returned to Zbehy to catch a Prievidza to Bratislava fast train hauled by a Goggles (Okularnyk/Brejlovec) locomotive. This photo was taken on the Jelšovce to Zbehy track, a triangle used exclusively by these fast trains, while all regional trains travel between Nitra and Leopoldov or Nitra and Prievidza, mostly with class 861 DMUs. The latter can sometimes be found as carriages hauled by ŽSSK class 736 locomotives. Interestingly Prievidza has a few trains consisting of class 813 DMUs that will fill in gaps in the timetable but only as far as Topo'lčany.

As we have never before taken photos of the Nové Zámky to Topo'lčianky railway we decided to follow and afternoon train from Zlaté Moravce along the tracks. The last station is not served as it has a lower passenger rating (how surprising), but the rest is weak as well: there are six-hour-long gaps without trains and most of the modern railcars travel only to Úlany, where you change to a train headed to Šurany, where you can change towards Bratislava or Nové Zámky, if you still have the nerves to do that. And this railway has a maximum speed of 100 kph and fairly high population inhabited areas.

On our second trip we wanted to catch a few trains that went to the Rendez 2018 locomotive parade at Bratislava Vychod station. There are many guest vehicles at the locomotive museum that is at the old depot of the marshalling yard and there also are charters running to the parade both from inside Bratislava (Hlavná and Petržalka stations) and from further cities. We first caught the steam train that departed from Nitra to the parade. In the future, we will have to visit the parade and the charters as well, but now we wanted to catch some of the special trains and photographed anything that we came across.

The Okularnyk or Brejlovec is probably the best known Czechoslovakian locomotives that came in many different types and flavours. The class 753 was mostly used with passenger trains that needed steam heating, then later were withdrawn to local freight train duty. Eventually most of them were rebuilt as classes 750 and 756, only this museum locomotive remained. This is the firefighting train (can we call it a fire engine?) that is compulsory behind steamers. There seems to be a trend for these trains to appear more like a standard freight train nowadays, which is certainly something I am really happy for. More Okularnyk photos can be found here, and more of firefighting trains here.

For our last photo of the day we climbed into a bean field to take a photo of this train with the Basilica in the background. We will have to repeat it with more Sun.

I would like to recommend some further photo collections if you are interested. For the colourfulness of Slovakia, click here . You can find some beautiful class 75x photos in this album . For some more historic railcars, check this out ! You may also like Czech railcars , from the other side of the border.
