Passenger classes

Classes of comfort in Verd'landian railways slightly differ from the standard European ones.

  • 1st class (Verd'landian: Anitiɩ nift; Czech: První třída) — extra-comfort intercity class. Sitting units of this class are provided with highly comfortable seats and extra service. Sleeping units have compartments with no more than 2 couchettes.
  • 2nd class (Verd'landian: Doviɩ nift; Czech: Druhá třída) — standard intercity class. Sitting units should have separated, numbered, bookable seats and be relatively comfortable for the long time of travel. Sleeping units have compartments with no more than 4 couchettes.
  • 3rd class (Verd'landian: Triɩ nift; Czech: Třetí třída) — standard suburban class. Mandatory condition for unit to belong to the third class is presence of soft seats. The last ones are not separated nor numbered, they can't be booked. The passengers who hadn't find free seats, should travel standing. Sleeping units aren't provided.
  • 4rd class (Verd'landian: Patriɩ nift; Czech: Čtvrtá třída) — outdated suburban class. Seats are rough (usually wooden) or absent at all. Sleeping units aren't provided.

Projected fleet

As a best option, Railway of Verd'land plans to have 2-3 units of the Czechoslovak small-capacity motor coaches of 810 series (DAČS-430). They are ideally suit to amateur railways due to their cheapness, small size and reability.

Problems

While due to the possibility of rail companies registering in Czech Republic, the purchase of trains seems to be relatively easy and dependent of the availability of required funds only, organization of their movement is more complicated. The only way to link seliturs (entities of Verd'landian micronation) with each other or common railway is to built rail gates uniting yards of private houses with Prague tram system. This requires arrangements with Prague Public Transit Company, and can be very hard or impossible.
