Languages of publication



The study examines the inception and realisation of the local train service between Svinov and Klimkovice, starting with initial considerations, and ending with its sale. The main focus is on the approach and activities of local authorities of the interested municipalities, and the part played by regional and state authorities in the realisation of the rail service. Funding sources and risks arising for the individual project participants and rail service realisation are also studied. Post-war development of the firm is also explored, namely the economic operations associated with the sale of the rail service to the Association of Moravian Local Rail Services, and the subsequent financial settlement between the local authorities and other participants in the company.
