Agreed. Some of the "black lines" are in reality lines in a more-or-less advanced stage of planning.

Moreover, there are some other little inaccuracies. In the case of France, the prolongation of LGV-Est from Baudrecourt to Strasbourg, for example, IS under construction now.

Les 680km au Maroc correspondent à Tanger-Marrakech. L'IUC inclut les voies à plus de 200km/h comme voie pour train à grande vitesse.

Messieurs, le service TGV de 750km et selon l'UIC un service de 750km de HSL.

The best railway map of Bulgaria I have seen. Blue - electrified, green - non-electrified, thick - double line, thin - single line

And here is the home page with rail maps of many other countries.

Yellow = UK , NL , Poland , Spain(until recently it was the official color) , Portugal(EMU's+shunters) , others
Red = Germany , Swithzerland , Austria , Portugal (locomotives+emu/dmu)


So for a ICE3 train to go to the UK it will need to have a yellow front and comply to the CT security rules ... it's "doable" ... just see the Eurostar trainsets ... pure TGV trainset with yellow cab/front and security measures implemented.

And the remaining of your rant" is complete bias ... railways aply everywhere ...

Offtopic: in every environment (except in snow) the "white" color is a high visibility choise.
Point , set , match!!!

White is very bad for visibility because when its cloudy it shows up darker and when its sunny its very bright and wouldn't stand out. Yellow doesn't do this. Also I don't think yellow looks bad for a train front anyway. I think it looks better than an all round single colour used and it shows where the front is better...

It will always be one (of the stupidest) point of debate this "high visibility" thing.


Some use lights and other forbid them ... some use simple balck fronts without any visibility and others demand bright and shiny collors.

Just treat the subject with the importance it has in reality ... wich is basically ... NONE WHATSOEVER.

One thing that I will never understand about UIC is their total LACK of proper standards ...


There are some 400km of upgraded routes above 200km/h wich they never list as HSR (some have no actual top limit nowadays, just the AP 220km/h value added)
They always inclued Zaragoza-Huesca wich tops at 200km/h in the spanish mileage.

I think that the UIC basically only summarizes what the different railway network authorities report to them...

As per Dft FOIA request, yellow fronts are NOT required on HS1, including Ashford Int. and St. Pancras Int.

The reason behind this:
Yellow fronts are required for "track worker" safety reasons.
HS1 operations has to be stopped before any maintenance can be conducted on the line. Therefore the Yellow front end rule does NOT apply to trains using HS1.

NEW BOOK ON RAILWAY CARTOGRAPHY!

It's finally ready!

The first ever collection of official railway operators maps from every country in the world running passenger services is about to be released by Viking Penguin in the US!

RAILWAY MAPS OF THE WORLD is a full colour 144 page delight for all fans of rail cartography, showing the evolution of mapping from the Stockton-Darlington of 1825 to China's hi-speed network of the 2020's.

It also shows surveyors plans, proposals for lines which were never constructed, posters, timetable diagrams and signal box maps.

A number of SSC posters to this and other threads have been helpful in contributing to this compendium - you know who you are and I thank you for your contributions

They and anyone who's ever loved pouring over rail maps or even doodling their own will hopefully absolutely love this book!

Here's the front cover:

Here's a link to the publishers site:
http://us.penguingroup.com/nf/Book/B...d_Mark_Ovenden

And here to the pre-order page on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Railway-Maps-W.../dp/0670022659

It's available in hardback in America from end of April (British edition later this year)

I'll post some sneak preview page spreads soon just for SSC-ers!


Please accept my apologies for the shameless self-promotion, but we authors of specialist books need to be pro-active in this way!
