Record-beating railway construction to Yamal

2009-01-19

The construction of the railway line to the Bovanenkovo gas field in the Yamal Peninsula is proceeding with record-beating speed. The railway will facilitate the construction of the field, the biggest in the gas-rich peninsula.


The railway which is to completed and connected with the great Russian railway grid by early 2010, is proceeding rapidly despite the complicated climatic and geological conditions, Rosbalt.ru reports with reference to Ruskompress.ru.

A total of 4,7 km of bridges were constructed in 2008 and 24,5 meters of new bridges are now built every day, the news sites write. A total of 1300 workers are involved in the operations.

According to http://www.aktuell.ru/russland/news/...sel_23957.html (in German) now a four kilometer long bridge, which crosses the river Yuribej, is completed. It has been built within 349 days.

Beautiful pics! Will those old stations along the route be reconstructed?

Problems with the german ICE 3

Well recently there is a very serious technical problem that occured with the german ICE 3. The axles of the train are constructed faulty. They're made of a new, very hard steel and in Cologne one of the axles actually really broke.
Now they have to be tghoroughly tested with ultrasonic testing equipment every 30.000km (!!! - That's an extremely short testing interval for a train, basically even ridiculously short) instead of every 300.000 km (that was the previous, original testing interval) which of course is economically rather inefficient now. And the trainschedules in Germany were pretty messed up for quite a long time, because all the new ICE 3 trains had to be tested.
Now the question I have, is:
Do all the other ICE 3 derivals, the very simmilar trains all over Europe have the same problems with the axles? Does the Velaro RUS have the same problem because it has simmilar axles or does it not, because it has different axles because of the wider tracks in russia? and what about the Velaro E in Spain?
Does anyone here know if this technical problem with the "breaking axles", or to be more correct the short lifespan of these axles, is a worldwide problem with this train or is it just one that occurs in the german version?

Here's a german article that explains the technical problem really pretty well:

Although I have not read the german article
The problem can probably be narrowed down to handful of factors.

One is metal fatigue through metal composition failure which can be fixed.

Second is metal fatigue through stabilization failure which can also be fixed placing stronger dumpers on the bogie.

Third is metal fatigue through axle overload through design faliure which cannot be fixed so easily.

There is also the possibility of two or more problems that is working together that are creating the overall problem.

No. The axles which are braking are only in ICE3 and ICE-T, but not in any Velaro train. (ICE3 is not a Velaro train !).

The material used for the Velaro train axle is different. The FAZ newspaper articel is not precise, especialy it is showing a wrong drawing. The fracture is betweent the wheeldisk and an unused seat, which is not shown on the FAZ drawing. Maybe the best documentation about the fracture is the report from the German material research institute.

It is assumed that the follwing thing helped to produce the crack:
  • The material used for the axle
  • Material fault in the axle
  • Geometrical design of the axle

This is a picture of the fracture:

Right! The ICE3* has been built by Bombardier, Alstom and Siemens – Velaro is a product of Siemens.
The first Velaro for Germany will be the ordered Velaro D:
