The track laying train reached Køge today.

First around noon it was at the bridge over exit 32 and a few hours later it arrived at Køge Nord Station.




















And at Køge Nord








And after we made a short visit to the grocery store the train had moved a little bit closer.














The train now drives back to Ringsted and start on the other track and will be back at Køge Nord in 3 weeks time.
After that its the tracks towards Copenhagen that are going to be assembled.

The westbound track, from Ringsted, has reach højelsevej, about 5km West of Køge Nord station. You can also see the location of a future sidetrack on the left side in the first pictures.

Looking east


Looking West

As evident by these pictures we can conclude that the track laying train hasn´t reached Ølbyvej just yet.

Damn, i missed the train to Copenhagen. Maybe i can get the next one around 2 years from now.

Bonus info. The copenhagen bound track will have reached Greve centervej, when they are going for christmas vacation on the 21 of december.
They will lay the 2 tracks to Hvidovre, before they are going into the tunnels in Hvidovre and Vigerslev.

Some major events take place in this video.

From Roskilde the very last Litra MR train on the Lilly Syd line departs.

In Odense where the train is parked we see some of the last ICE TD trains heading back to Ze Germans to get scrapped.

In the K17 timetable only one departure each day on the Copenhagen Hamburg route is operated by an ICE TD, the rest will be IC3 (Litra MF).

Finally 3 more of the Litra MQ trains arrives in Ringsted on the way towards Næstved where the Lille Syd depot is located.

DSB to withdraw troubled IC4 fleet
Friday, December 16, 2016



DANISH State Railways (DSB) announced on December 15 that it will phase out the fleet of AnsaldoBreda IC4 trains in 2024 as electrification enables the introduction of new EMUs to replace the troubled DMUs

DSB ordered 82 four-car IC4 and 23 IC2 two-car sets from the Italian manufacturer in 2000 and the first trains were due to enter service in 2003, but the trains have been beset by technical problems and introduction has been heavily delayed

The connection between the new line and the legacy line in Ringsted is in full swing




Køge Nord station




Here is the track laying train just north of Solrød Strand, In today is around Ishøj so the picture is a week or so old





Next up for the train is the M4 bridge, I expect huge traffic jams when the train pass over the M4 motorway.






The Hvidovre tunnel is almost finished and they have started to move the Holbæk motorway back on place.
Behind is the Kulbane tunnel.

As they are working on the connection between the old and new line east of Ringsted in 8 weekends in January and February the trains to and from Berlin/Hamburg, Rødby færge and Nykøbing F are diverted through the lille Syd line and Køge station.














And then it started to snow

Its time to be introduced to the smaller local railroads around Denmark, we start up with Faxe Ladeplads to Køge on Østbanen.






In northern Zealand we have Hundested Hillerød line called Frederiksværkbanen named after the largest town on the route.





Nakskov Nykøbing F on Lollandsbanen on the island called Lolland and Falster where Nykøbing is located.





On the western part of Zealland we have Høng-Tølløse banen even though it continues from Høng to Slagelse.

This train apparently continues to Holbæk instead of ending in Tølløse




This one goes from the ferry town of Frederikshavn to the beachside town of Skagen at the tup of the jutland peninsula.
Skagen are known for a huge fishing harbour and in recent years also has become a larger cruise destination.







Another one from northern jutland is Hjørring Hirtshals.

Hirtshals has a huge ferry port with ferries to Larvik, Kristianssand, Stavanger, Bergen, the Faroe Islands and Iceland.






These are the ones for now
