It is possible to renovate a tunnel also without removing definitively a track. The Fréjus/Mont Cenis tunnel has been enlarged (mainly lowering the trackbed) by closing the tracks alternatively, plus with a daily 6-hour closure.

Tunnels on the northern ramp of the Brennerbahn have been renovated during the big works in 2012, which closed the line for a month and for several weekends.

If the Karawanken tunnel doesn't need to be enlarged, closing temporarily one track should be enough, without any (too long) total closure.

Un mort et 8 blessés dans une collision de trains en Autriche

Huit personnes ont été blessées, dont deux gravement, lors d'une collision frontale entre deux trains régionaux dans le sud de l'Autriche. L'un des conducteurs est décédé. Une collision frontale entre deux trains régionaux a fait un mort et huit blessés, dont deux graves, ce mercredi 6 mai dans le sud de l'Autriche.

Le conducteur d'un des deux convois est décédé des suites de ses blessures, a indiqué le directeur de la compagnie ferroviaire régionale «Steiermärkischen Landesbahnen», Helmut Wittmann. Une passagère de 60 ans et le conducteur de l'autre rame se trouvent dans un état jugé «critique», ont indiqué les secours. L'accident a par ailleurs blessé six autres personnes plus légèrement. Il s'est produit sur un tronçon à voie unique.

Zugsunglück in Waldstein

Deutschfeistriz: Waldstein | Am Mittwoch Vormittag sind zwischen Übelbach und Deutschfeistritz in einem Waldstück zwei Personenzüge der Steiermärkischen Landesbahnen zusammengestoßen. Einer der Lokführer dürfte das Haltesignal übersehen haben. Die Züge kollidierten mit etwa 80 km/h.

Willi Wurzinger, Feuerwehrkommandant des Abschnitt eins des Bereichsfeuerwehrverbandes Graz-Umgebung, schildert: "Ich war und bin selbst im Einsatz. Die Menschenrettung ist bereits abgeschlossen, in Kürze werden die Bergungsarbeiten beginnen." Insgesamt sind acht regionale Feuerwehren im Einsatz.

Einer der beiden Lokführer sei dabei ums Leben gekommen, heißt es in einer APA-Meldung. Der zweite Lokführer wurde laut ÖAMTC-Angaben vom Notarzthubschrauber Christophorus 16 verletzt in ein Krankenhaus geflogen. Von mehreren – teils schwer – Verletzen ist die Rede ...

Politik zeigt sich betroffen

Landeshauptmann-Stellvertreter Hermann Schützenhöfer äußert sich bei einer Pressekonferenz mit Finanzminister Hans Jörg Schelling zu verstorbenem Lokführer und den Verletzten in Waldstein: "In dieser Stunde gilt unsere Anteilnahme seiner Familie (Anm.: der Familie des Lokführers) und wir hoffen, dass die völlige Gesundheit der Verletzten wieder hergestellt wird."

Actually, the Slovenian railways also have those DMUs (Siemens Desiro), but they are covered about 90% with graffiti.

I know we have Desiros, but we still have those ancient trains as well. Although when I drove from Bleiburg to Maribor we had a newer train without graffiti.

Why is it, that the SŽ have completely given up on keeping their trains clean?
Especially regional MUs, almost each and everyone looks like a circus on wheels
Is it a part of some ingenious long-term anti-grafiti strategy to lull them into a false sense of security and then spring the trap?

It's terrible. They should allocate some money for guarding their trains. It particularly pisses me off when they spray windows as well.

Alternatively how about paying some graffiti artists to spray a complete ICE with some top-notch design?
