Postcard Locomotive ŽABOTLAM
Product detailed description
The first was called Panťák, the second Žába and for the third it was none other than Emilka. Production of the first pantographs began in 1964 and the planned service life was around 15 years. The last unit ceased operations, however, only on the regular line on the line Prague-Libeň - Roztoky in 2018. (five days before the planned technical inspection). This train was simply immortal.
And where can you meet Žabotlama today? Unit 451026-9 went to the depository in Chomutov after a respectable 54 years to rest. She left for great fame and the camera clicked on her own. Another unit is maintained in Šumperk, from where it now departs for Nostalgic Rides.
What made Frog so special? For example, for the easy possibility of changing the direction of travel without shifting, for a quick start or for a low-floor space for passengers.
In 2018, Žabotlam was definitively replaced by Ešus (CityElefant).
