1.5 million are no wet dream but a population projection by the very same office which published the number you cite.

Does HKX plan on expanding their service, adding more trains per day?

Today on Youtube. I don't know German well, but it seems that Stuttgart 21 project enters into a new phase. Groundbreaking for one of the shaft for future S21 tunnel towards Stuttgart Central station. Which one I have no idea:



Maybe you have an answer?

Hey guys, I need your help. I love trains, particularly the ICE. I run an application on my Mac which allows me to use HD movies as living background: MY LIVING DESKTOP ( information here http://www.mylivingdesktop.com/ ). I've searched on Youtube for some train scenes to download but I haven't found anything usefull. I need movies recorded on steady cameras (1080p ) which show the scenary before, during and after the train went away. The camera cannot follow the train ( the background can make you dizzy otherwise ). I wonder if someone here can help me where to find such stuff...Thank you in advance. By the way, I would be very grateful if you can help me to find ICE, TEE wallpapers too. Unfortunatelly Railpictures.net has only small pictures... Thanks again.

Sweet, absolutely sweet. I'll sure visit it in September '14 (my usual visit to Berlin for InnoTrans).

It seems to me that the tracks have a very steep incline at the northern portals (something over 30/1000 if not even 40), does anyone have a chart with all the gradients of the line?

Due to Photobucket f*cking up, most images won't be visibile in my old posts. If you need anything specific, please write me.

More pictures from the opening ceremony.

Dr. Rüdiger Grube (CEO of Deutsche Bahn) is happy.

Those stations are positively cavernous, the only one I've seen that is similar in size is the Canary Wharf Jubilee Line station

The line (Ulm -) Senden - Weißenhorn in the Ulm agglomeration was reopened yesterday for passenger services (it was a cargo-only line since 1966): http://www.augsburger-allgemeine.de/...d28111647.html

Which German railway station has highest train (not passenger) traffic per day?

Interesting question… I checked some obvious candidates and the answer might be Frankfurt HBf with about 1,700 trains a day. I couldn't find data for all major stations, though. Hamburg HBf and Munich Hbf are the obvious "competitors" - both have a higher passenger volume than Frankfurt.

Also, we should distinguish if "traffic" include traffic stopping or also running through. But that's probably useless, since all traffic stops in all main hubs. Also, including freight traffic is pointless, since all main hubs have freight bypasses.
