ČD 362 084-6 at Praha hl.n. (Prague's main train station)

Image
A Czech Railways (České dráhy) train, lead by locomotive ČD 362 084-6, is leaving Prague's main train station. Behind the train two other trains wait to depart the station. This train station is a beehive of activity. One train after another was either arriving or departing while I was there for about an hour. The colorful buildings in the background are along Seifertova, a street on the northern end of the station.
