This branch runs from the SW apex of the triangle at Liberec-Rochlice in a northerly direction, paralleling the line to Liberec station, but on the opposite (east) side of the E442 motorway to the DPML tram depot, slightly beyond Aquapark Babylon. In previous years KŽC Doprava] have operated a Česká Kamenice - Liberec - Aquapark Babylon train pair on Summer Saturdays. This was not shown in the timetable except as a footnote to Train Sp1280 in table 086 saying "the train will come from the siding of the Aquapark Babylon and DPM Liberec". Note %: No timings are given in the CD timetable for Aquapark Babylon. In 2019 the train arrived at Aquapark Babylon at 10:45, with 14:50 the booked departure time.

Čáslav – voj. letiště Chotusice

(ERA-E 92C5; ERA-R 191B1; 38) CZ22/9

A 4.7km long branch runs northwards from the Třemošnice branch platform at Čáslav to serve Chotusice air base, home of the 21. základna taktického letectva (21st Tactical Air Force Base). There is a shuttle service when there is an air show at the base to a covered platform on the base perimeter adjacent to a 3km post, 3.3km from the Třemošnice branch platforms.

A service ran on 20 May 2017, with departures from Čáslav at 09:15, 10:15, 11:15, 12:15, 13:15, 14:00, 15:00, 16:00 and 17:00. This is an event that takes place every two years and the last event was on 25 May 2019,so the next event maybe in May 2022.

Česká Třebová yard staff train

[260, 270] (ERA-E 94C2 not shown; ERA-R 192A1; 83A) CZ22/10

An unadvertised service has been observed in recent years leaving at approximately 14:00 from a short concrete platform, one track further over from the last public platform at Česká Třebová station. It turns off the main line about 200 m south of the station and follows what are shown as lines 91 or 93 in the Malkus Atlas Drah - west of the locomotive depot, where there is a stop. It continues past the roundhouse and turntable and terminates at a platform opposite what is probably the hump control tower. This is clearly an “end of shift” service as it is lightly loaded leaving Česká Třebová but very busy on the return working. The service is not intended for public use, so access may be refused. The compilers would appreciate information on this or any other such services that may run at other shift change times.

This route has also been used in recent years by special shuttle services that run to the yards when there is an open day at the depot.

A depot Open Day was held on 04 September 2021 when these shuttle services were scheduled to run, with details.

Česká Třebová goods lines

[260, 270] (ERA-E 94C2 not shown; ERA-R 192A1; 83A) CZ22/11

Steam specials originating at Česká Třebová sometimes run via the goods lines, although this is not always obvious from the advance information. Prospective patrons should enquire further. Use of the following routes has been reported:

  • (Ústí nad Orlicí -) odb. Parnik - line 100 - 180° curve - marshalling yard - Česká Třebová
  • Česká Třebová - line 200 - odb. Les - odb. Zádulka (- Brno)
  • Česká Třebová - line 200 - odb. Les - 180° curve - Třebovice v Čechách (- Olomouc)
  • (Olomouc -) Třebovice v Čechách - Vjezdová kolej od Olomouce - marshalling yard - Česká Třebová

The 2021 specials returned to Česká Třebová via the Metrans a.s. Container Terminal, off Line 200.

Bílovice nad Svitavou (odb. Hady) – Brno Maloměřice Yard – Brno-Židenice

[260] (ERA-E 95B2 not shown; ERA-R 198C2 not shown; 79A) CZ21/11

Access to/egress from the north end of Maloměřice Yard from/to the Praha - Česká Třebová - Skalice nad Svitavou - Brno line is provided by two connections from odb. Hady, one on the north side of the main line and one on the south side. Several routes are possible through Maloměřice Yard. This route was used in the 2017-2018 Timetable period by Os4051 Blansko - 15:57 Bílovice nad Svitavou - Brno-Židenice which was allowed 8 min from Bílovice nad Svitavou to Brno-Židenice, as opposed to the 5 or 6 min allowed for all other trains, and was the only train to terminate at Brno-Židenice, so it seems probable that this was the booked route. However, there are no similar trains in the 2020-2021 timetable. A connection from the Havlíčkův Brod - Tišnov - Brno line into Maloměřice Yard is available at odb. Brno-Obřany. Both routes have been used in the past (e.g. June - August 2015) when there has been an engineering blockade.

Brno freight avoiding line: Brno-Horní Heršpice – Brno dolní nádraží – odb. Táborská – Brno-Židenice

[260, 300] (ERA-E 95B2; ERA-R 197B3-B4; 75) CZ21/13

Most trains on the Brno - Přerov line use the connection between Blažovice (on the Brno - Veselí nad Moravou line) and Holubice. Some services run via the more southerly, single track route via Sokolnice-Telnice, on which there is a regular service between Brno hl.n. and Křenovice horní nádraží. Trains can be identified in Table 300 by a vertical wavy line against Blažovice. Route changes are sometimes made for pathing reasons to accommodate late running.

Note that both routes are shown in ERA-R as Line/Table 300 but stopping services on the Sokolnice route are in Table 260.

[140/142](ERA-E 92B2; ERA-R 189C2; 17) CZ21/19

This 9km branch has had a summer Saturday train for the last few years, the "Mattoni Express", running between Karlovy Vary dolní nádraží and Kyselka with connection from Karlovy Vary. This is in connection with "the Mattoni mineral water bottling museum". In 2019 trains left Karlovy Vary at 09:30 and Kyselka at 13:00.

This is a connection between the Pardubice - Havlíčkův Brod line and the Havlíčkův Brod - Brno line.

Click on the thumbnail for a full size map.

Havlickuv Brod.jpg

Havlíčkův Brod is a V-shaped station: platforms 1 - 4 serve the main (Praha -) Kolin - Brno line and platform 5, at an angle, the northern curve towards odb. Kubešův Mlýn (- Pardubice). It is not possible to tell from the timetable which route trains to/from the Pardubice line will use - the northern curve or via the Brno line and HB St. Tunel. However, almost all services are booked to use platform 5 and it appears that the northern curve is the normal route: the drivers change ends after arrival at Havlíčkův Brod and do not run via the Brno line and do a "balloon loop". Only those Pardubice services booked to use platforms 1 - 4 are certain to run via HB St. Tunel.

There were no reports of trains using this connection in the current timetable, but for information the following train left from platform 1 in the 2012-2013 timetable

D1 SSuX Os 14886 19:24 Havlickuv Brod – Zdirec nad Doubravou

D1 - Note this train does not appear in the current 2020 - 2021 Timetable.

However, use of the connection is likely for the rest of the current timetable as from 01 June 2021, as part of a ten month contract starting in March 2021, the regular route from Havlíčkův Brod towards Hlinsko / Pardubice (JR238) will be closed due to replacement of the bridge over the Sázava River. Train times will not be altered but will use Platforms 1-4 and depart in the Brno direction. See.

The compilers would greatly appreciate information from readers visiting Havlíčkův Brod of any Pardubice trains using platforms 1 - 4.

Obscure services: Lines used on an occasional basis

Praha-Bubny – Praha-Bubny Vltavska

[090/120] (ERA-E 92A2; ERA-R 189B5; 36A(Not shown on any)) CZ21/1

Spur (upgraded siding) to a single-platform temporary station opened 04 July 2017 located in the former Praha-Bubny freight yard near to the Vltavska Metro station on Line C. This is due to closure of the line from Praha Bubny to Praha Masarykovo nadrazi (excluded) for major reconstruction of the 1850 vintage "Negrelli" viaduct over the Vltava River, in connection with the upgrade and electrification of the line as part of construction of the long overdue Praha airport link. The main line was re-opened on 1 June 2020 when the temporary station was closed to regular services.

There are no trains in the 2020-2021 timetable.
