The main task for Danish F-16s in the current war is to patrol the airspace above this train and protect it from any attacker.

why is that train still sitting there? Can it be put to humanitarian uses, e.g. evacuating injured civilians?

All railway lines were under construction when the war started so there are just some finished parts here and there which lead to nothing.

RUSSIAN CONSTRUCTION IN LIBYA HALTED


on March 15, 2011in Libya


On 23 February, Russian Railways announced that 204 specialists from the company and its affiliates were working on the construction of the new 550km line between Sirt and Benghazi in Libya. A statement issued by Russian Railways president Vladimir Yakunin said: “The safety of our employees is one of the priorities at Russian Railways. The Company knows the exact location of all its staff abroad, and all of them are safe. We are working closely with Russia’s ministry of foreign affairs and the Russian embassy in Libya to identify options to ensure the safety of our employees. A special group of company representatives is flying to Libya to resolve the situation on the ground.”

On 4 March, the unrest “front line” reached the Russian construction base at Ra’s Lanuf, halfway between Benghazi and Surt. Work on the Libyan coastal main-line from Ras Ejder on the Tunisian Border through the capital city Tripoli to Benghazi came to a halt as Chinese and Russian workers left to escape the civil war.

Worth €2.2 billion, the contract includes the building of six major stations

CHINESE CONSTRUCTION IN LIBYA HALTED


on March 15, 2011in Libya


State-run China Railway Construction, which has evacuated most of its employees from Libya, says billion dollar projects are in jeopardy. A statement to the Shanghai Stock Exchange explained: ”Due to increasing turbulence in Libya and attacks against some of the company’s camps, all projects of the company have been suspended. Given the uncertain situation… the preservation of equipment and materials on site and subsequent development remain unclear.”

The company’s three projects in Libya have a total contract value of $US4.24 billion. Only about a sixth of the work, or $686 million’s worth, has been completed, according to the statement. The remaining $3.55 billion’s worth of contracts accounted for 2.3% of the company’s total outstanding contracts globally, it said.

The media reported China launching an “air, sea and land operation, to evacuate more than 30,000 citizens from Libya,
working mainly in the oil, rail and telecom sectors

It's probably the last subject on the agenda. But in a couple of years, when the society and country is working properly again, the old drawings may come up again

Since this thread were made the situation is totally different. It was a war in Libya and Gaddafi is killed now. So is this train still exists? Or is it destroyed by the war now? I think Libya have more important things to do now than keep this train. And maybe people think this train is a symbol for Gaddafi and destroeyd this train for that.

Do anyone here know anything about it?

Whatever happened to the trainset (couldn't they just repaint it and voila! a symbol of the new Libya- they do the same with military jets), the nation has more pressing needs than building grandiose high speed rail lines. I mean, this talk of HSR is like building HSR in Colombia or sub-Saharan Africa, something only the Chinese would dream up to curry political favor. Restoring and building conventional lines that carry freight and passenger trains that common people can afford are more important.

What would be far fetched about building a HSR in Colombia? A country with 46 million which would be the 2nd largest economy in Africa (quite close to SA). The only problem is the treacherous terrain, guerilla isn't an obstacle anymore, they are decimated

Well, the actual situation is, that conventional and HSR lines are the same in case of Libya... AFAIK, as the first stage they planned a diesel coastal 160 km|h route (160 for passanger trains, of course, and something lower for freight), but curves for 200...250, so it can be electrified sometime in future for introducing HSR.

The second point - there were no trains in Libya. So technically there is nothing to restore. Railway system was created from a scrath, and was more than half comleted before outbreak of war.
Russian and chineese contractors fleed when war started, taking some equipment with them, but leaving much behind also...
The third point - it seems that new Libyan goverment is rather radical, so they may be not interested in railways, especially with oil money diverted into someone pockets...

LIBYAN RAIL CONSTRUCTION MAY RESUME


On July 3, 2013
In Libya

On 23 February 2011, Rossiiskie Zheleznie Dorogi (RZhD – the Russian State Railway) announced that it and its affiliates had 204 specialised people working on the new €2.2 billion, 550km railway between Sirt and Benghazi in Libya. In view of protests and demonstrations taking place in the country, a statement was released saying the employees were safe but that the situation was being closely monitored.

On 4 March it was reported that the “front line of the civil war” had reached the Russian construction base at Ra’s Lanuf, half way between Benghazi and Sirt. All work on the line had ceased and all Russian and Chinese workers had been withdrawn from Libya.

At the end of June 2013 it was reported that the Libya Rail Implementation Authority had met with both RZhD and the China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) to discuss the possibility of reviving work on the railway. CRCC held contracts to build certain sections in the previous scheme, specifically from Tripoli to the Tunisian border at Ras Jdair and Tripoli to Khoms, Sirt and Al-Hisha-Sebha, in addition to an 800km line between Misrata and Wadi Shatti near Sebha.

LIBYAN RAIL BUILD IN LIMBO

On January 29, 2014 In Libya

Though Libyan Railways say they want to resume construction as soon as possible, all work on the extensive project has been in abeyance since the civil war began. Ansaldo STS recently returned €41m of the €71m advance payments made by Rossiiskie Zheleznie Dorogi (RZhD – the Russian State Railway) in respect of a €202m signalling subcontract for the 554km Benghazi-Surf line.

Libya: Ansaldo STS has returned €41m of the €71m advance payments made by Russian Railways’ ZST business for a €202m subcontract to provide signalling for the 554 km Surt - Banghazi line. Force majeure clauses were activated when construction was stopped by the civil war, although Ansaldo STS says Libyan Railways intends ‘to resume the work as soon as practicable.’
