Okay, fair enough, I have only tried the Lint in Denmark and I don't like them compared with NJ's current Desiro.

I have heard, that a CAF train and the Polish Pesa Link was in the contest, and I recently tried an electrical version of the latter in Poland and it was really good.

I've been in Dutch LINT trains, but compared to the one I've been in Germany there's a remarkable difference. I guess it's down to what the operator chooses, with regards to transmission, engine, etc.

The new Danish traffic minister announces Femern Link postponed to 2024.

He makes it sound as though it´s EU´s fault but in reality it is the fact that Germany can´t modernize and electrify their part of the railway from Puttgarden to Lübeck before 2024.
I hope though they continue with the new Storstrøms bridge in Denmark, as the old one is in such a bad condition that it is almost dangerous to run trains across it.

Rambøll to study Vejle Fjord cut-off
08 Jul 2015



DENMARK: The national roads directorate has appointed engineering consultancy Rambøll to explore four possible alignments for a high speed rail link across the Vejle Fjord, which would shorten Banedanmark’s main line between Fredericia and Aarhus.

The project is a key element in the government’s Togfonden DK railway investment programme, which will see the electrification of the main line to northern Jylland and line speed improvements to reduce the journey time between each of the country’s principal cities to 1 h. The current timing for the hourly Lyntog expresses between Odense and Aarhus is 92 min with four intermediate stops

But where is the S-train?

Køge, Ølby and Jersie has been been without S-train service for abouth one month and will be for one month more before all construction work has been done.


First up is a roadtunnel north of Køge station that will replace a railway crossing just south of the station.











The railway crossing







And between Ølby and Jersie a tunnel will connect the new Copenhagen Ringsted high speed line with the Lille Syd railway.

When done trains from Næstved will run via Køge and Køge Nord to Copenhagen.


They are also constructing the platforms on the S train line for the Køge Nord station, but I don´t have pictures of that yet.

The traffic light for cyclist is visible under the lower located traffic lights.


Seconds after I took this picture a double decker train arrived from Nykøbing F so that is the reason why the arrows are activated.

One of the 6 remaining class EA electric locomotives, which have just been restored and fitted with push-pull equipment to work DSB's double decker coaches on the regional commuter services between Copenhagen and Ringsted.
Here, EA 3020, is seen passing the site of a relocated S train station and under the new road access bridge to the new township been developed on the olsd Carlsberg brewery site in Copenhagen.
A paint job at the same time, might have been considered.

Today a Danish newspaper has as heading: 'Partier bag togfond: Vi mangler milliarden'
Does anyone know what's the article about?

The Togfonden is based on tax money from the oil and gas from the danish part of the North Sea.


But the price on gas and oil is way lower that than what is estimated when they funded the togfonden.

thank you. Do I understand correctly that this fund is dedicated to upgrade of the rail infrastructure?

Yes, that's correct. In addition to the point that Bongo-Anders raised regarding a funding shortfall, politics have also entered into the equation. The previous left-leaning government, which instituted the fund, was very positive toward collective transportation.

The new right-leaning minority government and their populist support party are much less so. The problem is further compounded by the fact that part of the planned railway upgrade consists of creating bypasses at provincial towns in eastern Jutland where these parties enjoy strong political support. The local mayors are not happy at the prospect of their towns no longer being "compulsory stops" on the intercity railway map.

Do you think DK's new government might scale back or even cancel the upgrades?
