    Author: Ing. Jindřich Bek
    The cog railways have always been a sort of a technical attraction and very often proved that the designers were more than able to cope with the construction of the most daring mountain railways and with the adaptation of the steam engines to the demanding conditions of these railways.
  3. Magazine Železničář 1980, number 13: M240.0 used for the cog railway section Tanvald - Harrachov
    Author: Ing. Jaromír Kozinka
    The regular service of these engines started on May 30, 1965 and some of them are still in service (M240.0109 and 240.0110 in Liberec depot and M240.0118 and M240.0119 on the Eastern Railroad)

    Author: Ing. Jindřich Bek
    Many weekends were spent working voluntarily in Kořenov with the objective to build the railway station there. In future nobody will ask about the names of individuals who actively contributed to the reconstruction and no wonder, it is not necessary. The only necessary thing is to contribute now to the effort as much as possible.

    The factory in Floridsdorf produced 4 engines D2’ in the years 1896 and 1900, 3 engines D1‘ for the Kořenov railway and in 1911 even 269 series with coupled 6-wheel engines . Similarly in 1908 the factory produced 7 engines (series 40) with the configuration 1'D1' for the railway from Caransébes to Subscetate. All the engines had the same diameters of wheels, cylinders, piston strokes and apart from 269 series engines also the same steamers.

      Its weight (125 tons) gave it unmanageable momentum when leaving the 932m long tunnel and the crew was powerless. After several forlorn attempts to stop the engine and despite of reversing the engine fell from the high escarp near Dolní Polubný.

    The Czech cog railways were motorized and in 1961 the T 426 series engines were produced in Floridsdorf - 4 engines for ČSD (Czech railways) and one (2085.01) for ÖBB. In Hungary they waited some time to see which engines were the best and then they decided to order them as well.

    In 1984 the tests of the Czech engine T 466.2 started. Two years later the modified T 466.2369 was used for goods train on the coq railway. In future the motor engines from CKD (new series 743 – existing T466.3) should be added, too.
  14. Železničář 1988, number 10: Adhesion engines for Kořenov,
    Author: Ing. B. Skála, Ing. Jiří Pohl
    On July 1, 1988 we will celebrate 86th anniversary of the start of the operation of the only cog railway in the Czech Republic (from Kořenov to Tanvald). This railway was until recently the only normal gauge public cog railroad in Europe. The delivery of 10 new engines (series 743 from CKD) at the beginning of 1988 enabled the operation of cog engines to be finished.

    After the World War II the bad technical condition of steam cog railway engines together with the loss of the engine 403.503 (due to war) led to the decision to replace them with the new cog engines. From the purely technical point of view it was more or less outdated solution because in many other countries the steam engines were successfully used for adhesion type of operation even for the slopes up to 65% already in the twenties and thirties. Despite of the initial intention to electrify the railway in the end new motor cog engines were ordered in the Austrian factory SGP Floridsdorf.

    The celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the opening of the railroad between Tisovec and Pohronská Polhora enabled the visitors to see also the cog rail part of the road between these two stations. The cog parts were not used since the reconstruction of the road in 1966 because of the radical reduction of the goods transport on the railroad.
