"Norimberk" = Nürnberg = Nürnberg?


I wonder where the rather new Talent 2 trains DB is using on the services currently will go.

There I was thinking I'd know Germany quite well, but I have to admit I had to search for Norimberk.

Sometimes one just forgets, in this particular case the exonym stuck in my head.

Siemens will deliver 82 new trains for the planned Rhein-Ruhr-Express.

Good to see that Siemens already found a customer for the Desiro HC (High Capacity)

I have a brochure, here are a few pictures:

Are you sure it's not Daisyro HardCore?

I really hope Siemens has learned from its mistakes, such as with the German Velaro. I have taken one a few times now, and they had funny problems such as 10 minute delay because the door would not close, toilets which get blocked just from toilet paper, etc, plus no real benefit over the older ICE in design and passenger comfort. Nonetheless I am sure they cna make good trains if they want to and do not speed up the process too much.

When could we realistically expect Hof-Regensburg to be fully electrified?

Or 2087. In my experience, it can take a very long time until improvements promised by DB are implemented. If they are implemented, that is.

Examples include elictrification of Geltendorf - Memmingen - Hergatz and tilt-shift trains on the Allgäu railways.

No, and it isn't that way either in fact. Some people just take the politicly motivated headline announcement too serious and wonder why these best case scenario targets aren't met.
As a matter of fact railway projects in Germany are very well in linewith similar projects abroad in terms of time and budget .

Disagree. The project mentioned (Geltendorf-Memmingen) is at least five years behind the international contract (2020 instead of 2015). Switzerland and Austria have completed their sections already.

Stuttgart 21 is three years behind schedule (the schedule that was made AFTER the popular vote, so not delayed by protests).

The construction of Ebensfeld-Erfurt has begun 19 (!) years ago but will not see trains for two more years.

Stuttgart-Zurich was contractually agreed ("Vertrag von Lugano") to be tilt train enabled and partially double tracked. The Swiss side has finished their part, nothing has happened in Germany.

4-tracking of Mannheim-Basel was contractually agreed to be finished when the Swiss Gotthard base tunnel is done. The tunnel will be in service next year, one year ahead of schedule, while the 4-tracking is still decades away.

Agree. Could lengthen that list. We should be able to travel with 300 kmh from Frankfurt to Mannheim by now; the Dresden-Berlin route sees some digging every now and then without any end in sight. Just now, the German side announced it will not have its access route to the planned Fehmarn Tunnel built by Denmark done in time etc. etc.

To be fair those types of mega projects tend to be prone with delays, NIMBYism, and cost overruns.

But why Austria and Switzerland - both also democratic and federal countries with the usual bureaucracy and potential NIMBYism - manage to finish their projects on time?
