I appreciated the Talent 2 in the Berlin area, quick and comfortable. Far better than the BR 440, whose designers forgot to put windows on its side...

Not the same appreciation in NRW (the ones operated by DB Regio), because they're packed with more seats in the same space.

Any info on the design chosen by NE?

Vossloh to sell transportation division

Quote:
VOSSLOH: Following ‘a detailed assessment’ of the company’s product range, the Supervisory Board of German track components and rolling stock supplier Vossloh AG announced on December 2 that its Transportation division ‘is no longer defined as core business’. The intention is therefore to sell Transportation ‘in whole or in parts by 2017 at the latest’, or transfer it to a partnership which would no longer be controlled by Vossloh.

According to the company, analysis has shown ‘very clearly’ that ‘none of the operations of Transportation under the umbrella of Vossloh can achieve the necessary size and international positioning’ required for ‘sustainably positive business development’.

€28bln infrastructure program for DB

*Die Deutsche Bahn will in den kommenden fünf Jahren 28 Milliarden Euro in ihre Infrastruktur investieren.
*Von 2015 bis 2019 sollen unter anderem 17 000 Kilometer Schiene, 8700 Weichen und mindestens 875 Brücken erneuert werden.
*Vergangene Woche erst wurde bekannt, dass die Bahn 200 Millionen Euro in Service, Qualität und Pünktlichkeit stecken will.

*Deutsche Bahn [and the federal government] is going to invest 28 billion Euro in its infrastructure over the next 5 years
*From 2015 until 2019 they will renew over 17.000km of tracks, 8700 switches and atleast 875 bridges
*Just last week Deutsche Bahn announced a 200 million Euro package aimed at increasing service, quality and punctuality
Exciting news to me. Here the press release from DB itself. They have included some extra info there.

Wow!
28 billion €uro to be spent on railway infrastructure within five years is indeed a hell of a lot money!

Up to 850 construction sites at the same time. That will indeed be very "exciting", especially for train passengers.

DB Netz kinda locked itself into low achievement and non-exciting goals when it abandoned not only maglev projects but any sort of super-high speed rail concept.

Imagine if right now they had an ongoing Transrapid project with beams laid between Stuttgart-Manheim-Frankfurt

They've definitely chosen the right battle in modernising the ageing network.
The economic benefit will be a lot more than investing 28 billion in new HSLs.

Keeping the German network in a decent condition is not a low achievement

To put that into perspective: They announced to rebuild 17,000 km of the 61,000 km of DB tracks, that equals more than 25%.

I wonder if all this spending will have a noticeable effect on schedule reliability. Right now cross country long distance services are as likely to be late as on time…

But there's still the chance that you can catch yesterday's train

I would like to see a High Speed Hail between Leipzig - chemnitz - Dresden. It would be awnsome to see these cities merged!

Merged or linked? Merged basically means build everything to one big city, but the countryside is way too nice in that area, although Suburbanist wouldn't care....

Knowing the Germany they won't have any of it. And they'd be quite right too!
