Czech Railways to introduce modern express trains on some routes this year

Czech Railways is planning to introduce new trains in December, the news website iDnes.cz reported. The German-made Rx branded express trains should be deployed on routes currently served by old East German trains with leather-covered seating. Twenty-seven modern, air-conditioned trains will carry passengers between Prague and two destinations, Cheb and Železná Ruda in West Bohemia. Czech Railways plans to introduce more Rx trains on other routes in future, iDnes.cz said.
