Not THAT surprising.

The Milwaukee Road spent 20 YEARS double-entering the debits for their Pacific Division. As a result, it looked like the biggest money drain, when in fact it was the only thing keeping the railroad afloat. The company went bankrupt only a few years after they abandoned the line.

Someone in the Danish subforum told that the estimated price was around 8,7 billion kroner so its actually 500 millions under the estimated price, helped by the almost 200 million kroner tunnel that wasn't there.

Finally got around to processing my videos from Copenhagen Central Station.

A very impressive station indeed.

The railroad tunnel on the Copenhagen - Ringsted high speed line under the Holbæk motorway should be done by next month.

It looked like they have put asphalt on the motorway last weekend when I passed by.


But here is an aerial from August showing the almost finished tunnel.

By relocating the motorway they could cut off 1,5 years of construction work, very impressive.

For now the only service will be a once per hour Regionaltog train between Ringe, Odense, Langeskov and Nyborg.

Some Intercity trains will stop but its a very infrequently service, if that is a word.

Infrequent. You're modifying the noun, service, so you'll want the adjective. "Infrequently" is an adverb and would modify, well, verbs. (And adjectives.)

Thank you, its hard to right in another language than your own.

But for some odd reason the first part of my post wasn't added.

I was trying to tell that Langeskov station opened this Sunday and that its a rare occasion that a new station opens here in Denmark.

InterCity service is a lot to say. It's currently only a few trains in the evening when the regional train is not running any more. But as far as I understand, they will improve a lot with the complete redesign of the timetable this December (not only in Langeskov, but everywhere)

Some action around Holbækmotorvejen, all of it is off course because of the new Copenhagen Ringsted high speed line.

First the M4 bridge














The tunnel under Holbækmotorvej at Avedøresletten is now done and the motorway has been moved back to its normal alignment.















And Hvidovretunnellen under/next to the motorway.














And finally Vigerslevvej will soon also be moved back to its original alignment because the kulbanetunnel is finished.

The first line on the s-train network, between Hillerød and Gentofte, will start with the new system in January 2016. That is one year after the plan.

The deployment on the mainline between Langå and Frederikshavn, has been moved back from October 2016 to January 2018.

And on the line between Roskilde - Køge - Næstved is the deployment date moved back from may 2016 to July-December 2017.

Some details to the non Danish member.
The new signaling system on the mainlines is the ERTMS Level 2.

On the s-train network are they installing the system called CTBC.

This station seems to be very nice. The one can get easily irritated when comparing the tidy platforms of CPH C to run-down, dirty ones in STHLM C.

Yeah indeed. The station itself (Stockholm C) is nice, but the platforms are a bit... Blergh. Copenhagen seems to have both in order and really quite a stunning station interior, but a less nice exterior (lots of drunk people and vomit at the entrance near Tivoli when I was there).

Kulbanetunnellen on the new high speed line from above.


Hvidovretunnellen starts up at Holbækmotorvejen.




And looking towards Copenhagen.

While the Kulbanetunnel is done they still need alot on the Hvidovretunnel but its done in 1 years time.

Right now they are making the walls (is Secant pile walls translated correct?) and after that they will dig out the tunnel.

The eastern wall was done this summer and the western wall during the winter months.

The 2 bridge for the high speed line near exit 32 on the Køge Bugt motorway.


The northern bridge (the more finished one) will cross the relocated exit ramps and the southern bridge the relocated Lyngvej.

The Lille Syd line (Little South) between Roskilde, Køge and Næstved has been closed for 2,5 months in preperation for the electrification, ERTMS-2 installation and upgrade to 160 km/h from 120 km/h


The works that has happened during the closure was replacement of the bridges that are to low for the electrical wires, at other bridges they have just lowered the tracks instead.

The wooden sleepers has been replaced with concrete sleepers.

The have build turnouts and double tracks north of Køge station in preperation of the high speed line.

Also north of Køge station they have done some sheet piling for a road tunnel that will replace a level crossing just south of Køge station, the tunnel will be ready in one years time.





What is left is installation of the catenarys for the electrical wires and I think that ERTMS-2 is needed before they can drive 160 km/h.

The before mentioned road tunnel north of Køge station.

It will pass under the S-train tracks (they were closed during the summer), the Lille Syd line (that are double tracked on this part) and the freight terminal.

This line will be reopened only after electrification and installation of ERTMS-2?
