Czech Railways gradually resume operation

Trains on the country’s main routes resumed operation on Wednesday after being cancelled the previous day due to an ice storm. Rail routes in the worst affected areas, in the central and southern Moravia, are still not running and Czech Railways are urging passengers to use alternate means of transport if at all possible. All of Prague’s 22 tram routes were also back in operation on Wednesday afternoon after a day when virtually the entire network was out of action. A black-ice alert is set to remain in place in the Czech Republic until Wednesday evening.
