While the main focus on this thread has been on the construction if the high speed line between Copenhagen and Ringsted something has happened on the line between Lunderskov and Esbjerg.


On this thread on Jernbanen.dk (The railway) there are new photos on the construction of the catenary poles for the electrification programme.

Are they still on schedule for an electric service by the end of the year? I believe that was the original plan.

The follow up to that video is here, it goes from Tinglev to Fredericia so its possible to see the new double track between Vamdrup and Vojens.

Sorry I missed your post.

On the Copenhagen Ringsted line they have finished the 3 bridges on and next to the M3 motorway.

Banedanmark has taken these photos.

In northern Køge The work on the embankment between the bridge over Lyngvej and bellingestien seems to be in full swing.











The bridges over Lyngvej and the western ramps on exit 32 on the Køge Bugt motorway.














At Køge Nord we now has tracks on the 2 outer platforms.








Looking south towards the flyover.












And on the 2 weeks delayed construction on the Køge Bugt railway they have installed the new tracks but still lacks the ballast.

Hey there,

is there a plan which train lines will use the high speed line? Which trains will they use? And when the upgraded part to Rodby is finished, what trains will ride from and to Germany?

[DK] Danish railways to order 26 electric locomotives

Quote:
uring our last visit to Copenhagen, we were negatively surprised by all the black smoke the old ME series diesel locomotives are allowed to produce in the city's underground S-Bahnstations. Time for a more healthy and environmentally friendly solution. And it will come:

Today the Danish state railways (DSB) published that its board of directors have approved the plan for the purchase of 26 new electric locomotives. These will replace the locomotives currently used pulling DSB's double deck trains (type Bombardier Twindexx, now mostly pulled by the ME diesels) and they will pull regional trains in the Sjælland area.
The new machine should be of a standard design, which has already proven itself in everyday service. This autumn DSB wants to commence the selection procedure. The first new electrics then should arrive in 2020. The order is a first step in reducing DSB's dependency on the unreliable IC2/IC4 electric diesel trains and increasing the number of electric trains in the country. New electric articulated trains will be purchased too.

Diesel trains on the S-train stations!!!! This article is funny.

Perhaps they were at the long distance platform at Nørreport.




The plan is as followed.

Electrify Lille Syd from Køge Nord to Næstved and the high speed line in 2018, Roskilde to Kalundborg in 2022 and the line to Fehmarn somewhere between 2020 and 2024

That last timeline is not done yet because they will wait to put the wires up when they know when the new Storestrøm Bridge opens.


Østbanen that now runs from Køge to the Stevns Peninsula will take over the northern part of Lille Syd between Køge and Roskilde so this part will still use diesel trains.

All other lines on Sjælland/Zealand will then be under wire and that means no diesel trains in the boulevard tunnel from Østerport to the central station.


On the line from Næstved over Køge Nord to Copenhagen that are ready in 2018 i have heard that they will use the litra ER emu's that currently runs on Kystbanen but Øresundstog will have to get some new trains and these that they are renting from DSB will then be delivered back.


But lets see what happens.

The latest news is that DSB will run with the ME diesel locomotives and double decker wagons from Næstved to Copenhagen until the new electric locomotives are ready in 2020.

So the line will under wire but the train will be diesel.

Wait, that means we might one day see the Øresundstog in national traffic? Or will they just get repurposed on Kystbanen to free a few more ER?

No the Øresundstog are Litra ET

Litra ER is also known as IR4 (Interregionaltog 4 as in 4 wagons) and is related to the IC3 trains.

Litra ER runs between Nivå and Copenhagen Airport and some of them will replace the IC3 trains on the intercity service between Copenhagen and Esbjerg when that line is electrified by the end of this year.


But I have done some digging and found out that DSB now will use the ME locomotives and double decker wagons between Næstved Køge and Copenhagen until the first electric locomotives are in service by 2020.


So they will build a new line and electrify the line from Køge Nord to Næstved but use Diesels locomotives the first 2 years

They have removed the support under the railway bridge over Taastrupvej in Solrød so now it looks like a real bridge.
























At the Køge Nord station the track laying has progressed further north.


First looking north from Egedesvej.







And south towards Køge Nord station.

Progress around exit 32 at Køge Bugt motorvejen with the 2 railway bridges


What´s worth noticing is that the railway embankment between the bridges is rising steadily and is not far from reaching the same hight as the bridges.

More tracks being laid at Køge nord station.
This time it is the side track for freight trains, between the other tracks.

Sorry, here´s a another post about more tracks at Køge Nord but right now its the most visible construction site at the high speed line as all the bridges are almost completed.

I will try to get closer to the 2 railway bridges at exit 32 on the Køge Bugt motorway because the embankments that are up to 10 meters high is growing steadily up to the full hight.

Hopefully it will be on Wednesday or Thursday.

That looks so fancy that it's kind of difficult to imagine reality. The basic idea of a station perpendicular and above the tracks is clear, though.
