Project of the reconstruction of Kolin sugar beet railroad

The Club for reconstruction of Kolin sugar beet railroad (KRD) inaugurated the functioning of the railraod by ceremonial opening on June 23, 2007.

The whole reconstruction was done by Konstav a.s., Kolin. On the premises of KRD you can find a newly built railway station with an information office and a small museum dedicated to the history of Kolin suger beet railroad, and an engine house serving as a round-house. Both the buildings were desinged in accordance with historical buildings of State Railway Company. The body of the rail has been reconstructed in the original way, so far up to 2 kilometres.

Pleasure trains are drawn by diesel locomotives BNE 50, BND 30 and BN 15R or by a steam narrow-gaugelocomotive BS 80 No.10.

The Club for reconstruction of KRD would like to extend the railroad to Bychory in the total length of 4.5 km in the second part of the reconstruction project.

In the surroundings there are beautiful walking paths and cycling tracks and in future there will be an informative trail built.
