Nice stations!

Trains are similar to some of Paris and Santiago de Chile.

On January 12th, 2006, the town council of Villard-de-Lans approved the project of the new rack train from Villard-de-Lans to the new ski resort, which will be built, end 2008, above Le Balcon de Villard.

The rolling stock of the two cog wheel lines : Lausanne-Ouchy (LO) and Lausanne-Gare (LG) will be give up to the french town after January 22, 2006 which will be the last day of “La Ficelle” !

The rolling stock will be stored by Tensol Rail SA, a Swiss company which will be also in charged for the transfer to Villard-de-Lans when it will be necessary.

Villard-de-Lans will be in charge to remove asbestos from the cars.

First test running have yet started between the depot and Croisettes station (the terminus, and the one finished and presented to the public).

Wow! This line is a real jewel. Great technical devices, nice trains. Overall, a beautiful project.
Are there any chances to see M2 running before autumn 2008? (i.e. route limited to few stations)

I don't think that will be possible because of all the new techniques. But there will be a 3 month test period without passengers before the line opens.

Thanks for smart reply.
Indeed, I'm impressed by this infrastructure. Convert an existing railway into an automated tyre-wheel-based metro, pratically keeping the same gradient.. great job.
A question: is this type of vehicle the best choice for such a type of metro?

I hope that some test rides will be public, but the main part of the line (railway station-city centre) is far from the depot, and obviously it can't be opened alone.

The only other options available was the VAL. Or a personalized rack system...

About 30 meters, just as long as one train. The trains can't be coupled and can't be extended in the future.

Yes, but the headway can be reduced up to 2 minutes, that will be probably enough for a lot of time. After Croisettes station, the last one, the urban area continues for about 1 km and after, there are only farms and small isolated villages.

60 (minutes) / 2 (headway) = 30 tpm. Say up to 300 passengers per train is a capacity of 9000 passengers per direction per hour between two stations. Seems more than enough for me for the time being (or Lausanne should accidentally develop into a mega-city after completion of the VAL...).
