Those are really well made! I've watched some fragments of all of them already. But beyond cool videos how are these local railways doing in Denmark in terms of passenger numbers, frequencies, reliability etc.? I've noticed already that in some of these lines (last clip in particular) stations are very close to each other (almost like a tram!), seemingly in the middle of nowhere (no houses seen) and there was only 1-2 passengers boarding.

Most of these lines runs on support from the municipality, regions or the state so they are not profitable.

The smaller stations are only served when the passengers press on a stop button in the train or on the platform.

Photos, from january, from the future Køge Nord station.
Here we are looking south with the connection, to the old line into central Køge, in the background.





And then a look north, with Solrød in the background.
And Copenhagen is somewhere down the coast.

Tadahhhh the tracklaying machine on the Copenhagen Ringsted high speed line is done.

Only some minor work like adjusting the rails and ballast is missing.

Next step is signaling (ERTMS-2) and mounting the catenary poles for the electrical wires.

I have heard both spring and more specifically April or May as start up dates for these works.

There are still some details missing on the line:

First of all, there is the flyover with related turnout just southwest of Ny Ellebjerg station; these have yet to be built. According to the timeline, this should happen sometime this year.

Secondly, the are the final connections to the station in Ringsted, as well the replacement of several turnouts, moving and/or justment of tracks and platforms there to.

The flyover has been moved back a few years so they can fit with implementation of the new signaling system.

For now they will just made a track switch.

The flyover to have been moved back is, to my knowledge, is the one at Ringsted where they had originally planned it in the west end, now they some people have suggested it be placed in the east end.

The one at Ny Ellebjerg has not been moved.

At any rate, making such changes so relatively late in the progress seems crazy, especially if the already had a working design.

Barslund has won the contract to rebuild 6 station on the Ringsted Fehmarn railway line.

Its Glumsø, Lundby, Vordingborg, Nr Alslev, Eskilstrup and Nykøbing F.

They start up in Eskilstrup by the end of this year and will be finished in 2021.

They also have and option to build a forplads (don´t now the english word, station square?) at Glumsø and a parking lot at Vordingborg.

That's the same line which will be used for the Fehmarn fixed link, right?

That is correct.

They have allocated the 9.5 or so billions + almost 4 billions for the Storstrøms Bridge without even knowing if Ze Germans will approve the tunnel.

So I'm guessing we will have a huge bill to pay if its not approved, but at least Nykøbing will get a travel time to Copenhagen on 1 hour.

14 billions Danish krones I assume, right? I thought Fehmarn link has already been fully approved and ready to go. Are you know telling me that it's not the case and everything can still fall apart?

It has been fully approved by the Danish Parliament (Folketinget), but the Germans has not yet approved it.
Right now, Femern A/S (who is constructing the link and will be the legal owner, but itself owned by the Danish state) has delivered answers to the German complaints; some 11.000 (thousand) pages and with statesments from lawyers, expects on the environment and several other, some 100+ people.
It might seem a bit extreme, but there is a point the Germans are generally very focused on, not just in this project: Quality; only the very best is good enough.

Yes and no. The primary reason for building the new line, is to "release the pressure" from the current line Copenhagen - Roskilde - Ringsted, especially between Copenhagen and Roskilde. And to make the socalled "timeplan" (that's "hour"plan, with trains using only 1 hour between each of the largest cities in Denmark.

The current line has become somewhat of a bottleneck, with basically every train going westwards from Copenhagen using that line (since it is the only one at the moment.
Especially the line Høje Taastrup - Roskilde even with it's 4 tracks has reached it's max. capacity. And for the last approx. 20 years, it has been so. I have tried to make a quick rundown of which trains uses the line right now:
*Regional trains to Ringsted, Holbæk and Nykøbing Falster, 2 trains/hour each and in both directions (ie. 6 trains/hour each way).
*InterCity trains to Fyn and Jylland, at least two lines with one train/hour, both ways
* And a number of cargo trains.

So, the new line serves 2 primary goals:
1. "Relieve the pressure" from the old line
2. Enable faster trains between the large cities

The fact that it will be possible to route trains to Femern that way, perhaps via Køge Nord and the southern part of Lille Syd to Næstved, is just "extra icing on the cake" to use a modern expression.
