Notes about the pictures
Links under the vehicle class numbers and/or
group names lead to .zip archives. Steam locomotives zips include 8 or 4 phase
pictures (depending on if there are drawn both sides of the engine or only one).
The phase pictures then create the locomotive animation in the
Traffic screensaver. All the
pictures are drawn transparent in the .gif file formate. Thus they can be
used on the background of the full-screen landscape photos.
Nevertheless they can be
used by those who prefer classic screensaver appearance, i.e. trains movements
several lines on a black background.
General language note
- Author of this website
will be grateful for any aid concerning language corrections. English is not
his native tongue and he is not very familiar with English special railway
terms. (The mda
Railway Object Thesaurus was used for the translation of most original
Czech special railway terms to English. The website author is more familiar
with the British English but the bridge construction special terms were taken
over from the U.S. Model Railroader Magazine Handbook No. 33, issue 1998.)
- Most readers of these pages probably know that
in the dissertated period 1918-1938 about a quarter of the Czechoslovak
territory was settled by German speaking population. If the concerning notes
in the text refer to the names of the places located in this territory there
are usually used both valid Czech and former German local names.
