Citylink tram-trains certified to operate on Karlsruhe suburban rail network
8 JUL, 2015



Vossloh’s Citylink tram-trains have been certified by the German regulator to operate on the suburban rail network surrounding Karlsruhe.

Karlsruhe’s NET 2012 series vehicles will now be able to operate on lines S1/S11 between Hochstetten and Bad Herrenalb/Ittersbach.

Delivery of the new tram-trains began in May 2014. Having completed factory testing in Valencia, the vehicles have gradually been put into commercial service on the city’s light rail system

Exchange of old ticket machines in Karlsruhe, Germany (or, in fact, in the neighbouring municipality Stutensee) on the route of the Karlsruhe suburban tram line S2 (this is not a tram-train line, it's an ordinary tram):

Dzisiaj wracam do domu rowerem - a tu na kolejnym przystanku, na trasie "mojej" linii S2, gdzie jeszcze rano był stary biletomat, widzę... nowy. I obok samochód dostawczy z czymś, co wygląda na stare i nowe biletomaty na "pace"

Karlsruhe, tramwajowa linia podmiejska S2, przystanek Stutensee-Büchig:



Tu się na to natknąłem. Te żółte "cosie" w aucie to stare biletomaty, zdemontowane już z poprzednich przystanków.

Prawdopodobnie pierwsza użytkowniczka nowego biletomatu (a koło auta pan z ekipy, która ten biletomat instalowała):



Swoją drogą ciekawe, że przedsiębiorstwo komunikacyjne instalując nowe biletomaty korzysta z samochodu z... wypożyczalni.

Następny przystanek - Blankenloch Süd. Panowie (a na razie pan w pomarańczowej kurtce) przymierzają się do odstawienia widocznego na zdjęciu żółtego biletomatu na emeryturę:



Słabo to tu widać, ale w oddali widać dokładnie to samo auto z drugim panem w pomarańczowej kurtce, rozstawiającym pachołki.

Tutaj to samo z bliższej odległości, i z lepszym widokiem na zawartość samochodu:



Nie chciałem panom przeszkadzać, wsiadłem więc na rower i udałem się do kolejnego przystanku (na którym, zresztą, bym wysiadał, gdybym jechał do domu tramwajem). Blankenloch Tolna-Platz. Stary biletomat - którego prawdopodobnie już tam nie ma - w całej okazałości:



A to dostępna oferta biletów:



Wciska się najpierw guzik odpowiadający bilet jaki chcemy kupić (nie trzeba tego robić w przypadku zakupu biletu jednorazowego bez ulgi), następnie na klawiaturze numerycznej znajdującej się nieco wyżej wybiera się albo liczbę stref, albo np. liczbę osób w przypadku biletu landowego, i dokonuje się płatności - gotówką (automat przyjmuje monety i banknoty) bądź niemiecką kartą płatniczą w trybie bez wprowadzania PIN-u.

Ciekawe jest tu to, że w tych biletomatach o ile w przypadku biletu landowego (Baden-Württemberg-Ticket) można było dowolnie wybrać liczbę osób, dla których chciało się kupić bilet, to nie było to już możliwe w przypadku bardzo podobnie działającego biletu Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket, który miał na stałe wbite 5 osób. W nowych biletomatach nie ma takiego ograniczenia.

A swoją drogą - w Polsce nie do wyobrażenia jest możliwość kupienia w biletomacie komunikacji miejskiej biletu który byłby ważny w całym kraju (a nawet w całym województwie). W Niemczech to jest całkowicie normalne.
What's weird is that the old machines didn't sell the Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket (a weekend daily ticket which is valid in the local public transport of many cities and on the regional trains throughout the whole Germany) for a number of passengers different from 5. In case of the Baden-Württemberg-Ticket (a ticket similar to the Schönes-Wochenende, but valid only within the Baden-Württemberg Bundesland and not limited to weekends only) it's not the case, it can be bought for from 1 to 5 persons without any problem. At the new machines it's no longer so - a Schönes-Wochenende-Ticket for 1, 2, 3 or 4 people can also be bought there.

Plus for the wi-fi.

Karlsruhe is one of the few places in the world where you have a toilet in a tram

Actually, I like the old Düwags more. In the middle section they have soft seats, adjusted to longer journeys, while in those new Bombardiers they install seats almost like for the city public transport. And some of those old trams are also air-conditioned.

The plus of those Bombardiers is that they are more silent, and - in case of those new-ordered ones - the wifi.

Not every tram will have toilet, just like not every "tram" has restaurant car in the middle right now

Actually there are only 3 trams(since 2009, there were 4) with a restaurant. All restaurant trams and the last 22 DÜWAG's have a toilet. Those have the numbers: 846-848 and 900-922. The first generation tram-trains 809 and 810 had a toilet too, but they were removed as the newer ones got into service.

Have you even seen these tram-train restaurants working? Because I have seen those vehicles equipped with them on the lines, but I haven't seen anyone who would operate them and sell any food.

I rode it once but I never looked if anybody was selling food there although. Usually I took normal S4 to Grötzingen Oberausstraße.

They were operated around the late 90s/early 00s, first on normal services, later on sundays as a special train for tourists to Freudenstadt.
Nowadays it ist unused, unless for booked special services. That is also the reason why 845 lost its restaurant in 2009.

I lived in Karlsruhe from 1986-88. Loved the city and its transportation system.

I have finally managed to have a ride on one of those tram-trains with a bar. There weren't a good idea. They have less seats than the normal ones, and while those without a bar - both those with a bathroom and those without it - have really soft, comfortable seats in the middle part, those with a bar have hard seats (as in the front and the rear part) at the tables there. In much a smaller amount.

Work begins on second phase of Karlsruhe tram and road tunnel project

GERMANY: Jazz played on alpenhorns accompanied Baden-Württemberg Transport Minister Winfried Hermann and Lord Mayor of Karlsruhe Frank Mentrup as they attended a groundbreaking ceremony for the second phase of the Kombilösung tram and road project on April 21.

A road tunnel is being built beneath the east-west Kriegsstraße to take car traffic off the road. With the addition of a 1·6 km double-track tram route to be built on the surface, the street will be for the use of trams, pedestrians and cyclists only
