Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Of the former Eastern Bloc states, it is just the Czech Republic's which remained in the best shape - though that isn't saying too much. The general problems of neglected branchlines (though no mass closures), unambitious mainline upgrades (though those at least done extensively), minimal rolling stock modernisation (though there are those new double-stock suburban trains), and - yes - unkept stations. (And what would be a problem for some people in the elite or middle class: having to meet the underclass.) But a big plus is that the Czech network retained a certain charm, not everything is concrete walls. I of course hope Barbara can be convinced :-)
