Electric traction

Vehicles of the Rybnik - Lipno line

Traffic on the railway line Rybnik/Zartlesdorf - Lipno/Lippnerschwebe started up in 1911 with these vehicles. 3 electric coaches class M 201.0 for mixed trains (later the fourth one came) and 1 „locomotive“ E 200.0 (the last appointed mostly for shunting) coped with hauling everything (including heavy loads for and from the paper and saw mills in Loucovice/Kienberg) till the year of 1938.

M 201.0 E 200.001
