Weather at the park railway Olympia:


More weather

We lived to see inauguration of Park railway Olympia. Our feelings were wonderful when we left the station Amphitheatre with the first passengers. But let´s go step by step.

We did not thinking about our park railway inauguration a year ago. But doings of last months were very fast. But so goes the world. We were in the right place in good time. And Mr Navratil, executive head and marketing director of Somerston Olympia CZ, was in the same place. Park railway Olympia Brno was born at the time, but in our heads only. We transfered our ideas on the paper and computer monitors gradually. And we are ready to cut the tape today. Cut the tape symbolize completion of something, but we are in the start ironically. We must work very hard yet. The baby was born and we must establish, educate and direct him into life. We believe our idea and we hope so our Park railway Olympia brno will gradually prosper.

Preparing of this action will something new for us and we tried to undisappreciate nothing. We had to improvize a little, because technical facilities missing meanwhile. We will run from station Amphitheatre through return loop back to station Amphitheatre. The wayside station was intended for technical facilities. Some station track and switches were open in this station. Wide of ballast is suitable for manipulations and proximity to in-line skating rink is advantage for feed.
Management of Olympia detached storage area for us, guarded of safety service in addition. We started transport of engines and waggons S.M.P.D. on Thursday. Transport from storage area to park railway lasts about two hours always in the morning and in the evening. We must build technical facilities at the first.


We start to transport of models.

Petr Prikazky performed some adjustments on his steam engine KLISHAY since the last year's operations. And he was very curious about steam engine driveability in Brno. KLISHAY is unable draw pew waggons, regarding its output, but Peter drowe down his wife eventually. Visitors can look up to this unique steam engine. And Peter is working on a new, more high-powered steam engine, which he would like to set into operations this year.

The wather was very unstable as almost capricious. Sometime was sunny, sometime was rain. We got wet to the skin several times over. But sun dried us always. The weather of these days admonished about weather on Isle of Man for some informed.

This unobtrusive cumulus humilis gradually overgrew into cumulus congestus
and it sprinkled us with fruitful rain.

We kept pavilion bravely, but wind
gusts were stronger.

The Children´s day was in the biocentre on the next weekend 29th and 30th May. Company OK Mont layed track after tunnel and we used its for rerailing our vehicles. We removed all our things into wayside station by the help of battery engines. Some things were out of the structure gauge, but we removed all things without an expressive complications.
