Automobile train

Pack your car or motorcycle for a train journey too...

Load your car or motorcycle on a special car-carrier wagon, and rest peacefully in a sleeper carriage while our train transports you and your vehicle hundreds of kilometres. You needn’t worry about driving; at the destination station, you will exit the train rested and then continue your journey with your vehicle. Automobile trains generally consist of a car-carrier wagon and an accompanying sleeper carriage for comfortable overnight travel. At the boarding station in the automobile train terminal, you will drive your car or motorcycle onto the car-carrier wagon at a predetermined time prior to departure and then board the accompanying sleeper carriage. We will then couple the car-carrier wagon and the sleeper carriage to an overnight EuroNight (EN) train. At your destination station, the car-carrier wagon and sleeper carriage are decoupled and placed in the automobile train terminal, where you will exit the train and drive your car or motorcycle off of the car-carrier wagon. You can travel by overnight automobile train between Prague and Poprad, Prague and Košice, or Prague and Humenné.

Car-carrier wagons

Cars and motorcycles are transported on a double-decker car-carrier wagon. The maximum dimensions of cars are restricted. You will drive your own vehicle onto and off of the car-carrier wagon, always with the assistance of a railway employee. It is necessary to reserve your automobile train journey and purchase the necessary travel documents in advance. Cars and motorcycles are always loaded onto the car-carrier wagon in the special automobile train terminal, which is located away from the regular platforms, at a specified time prior to the train’s departure. It is necessary to check in the vehicle prior to loading, so don’t forget to arrive at the automobile train terminal on time.
