THREE DECADES OF CHANGE - 1990-2020S
Autore: Keith Fender
DISPONIBILE META' MARZO 2022
Attraverso più di 140 foto, questo libro esplora la storia decennale dei sistemi ferroviari di Repubblica Ceca e Slovacchia, e l’impatto che il raggiungimento dell’indipendenza nel 1993 ha avuto su di esse.
The Czech Republic and Slovakia emerged as independent countries in 1993, as joint successors of the former Czechoslovakia. Having once been a single country, with a single national railway operator, the change was significant, although both countries, and their railways, still have a lot in common. Loco types have changed through modernisation and rebuilding, and both countries have retained very different narrow-gauge systems. Both countries have invested in modern fleets, and rail freight has boomed thanks to globalisation and EU membership. Spanning three decades, this book explores the history and railways of both countries and features over 140 pictures.
