Smíchov – Hostivice railway line
The Smíchov – Hostivice railway line or Prague Semmering is a railway line in the Czech Republic. The line was built in 1868–1872 by the Buštěhrad Railway company (Czech: Buštěhradská dráha, German: Buschtiehrader Eisenbahn) as part of its connection between Prague and Chomutov.
The line was opened for cargo transport on 3 July 1872. It was used to transport coal and wood to Prague. Transport of passengers followed on 16 September 1872.
On the 9 km (5.6 mi) long section between Praha-Smíchov and Prague-Jinonice the line climbs an elevation difference of 90 metres (300 ft). There are two large viaducts, 20 metres (66 ft) and 22 metres (72 ft) high.
