hanzelijn

the hanzelijn,, i guess since the founding of lelystad this line was allready in mind. but they waited with it untill now, they're busy with it for a few years now and in 2013 it has to be in use.

it's a filler in a big hole of the dutch railway map. finally they fill it.

this line will contain 2 big constructions, one 750 meter tunnel



and a new bridge across the ijsel river, wich will be about 1 km long


large pieces of this line will be build on a dyke, total groundworks are about 3,5 milion kubic meter sand.

also new trainstations will be build, one for the city of kampen, and one for dronten (both are actually villages)
the design of these stations will be simular to the picture below


most of the track will be made for 200 km/h, so named fasttrack rail.

before this all is finished they will start to double the tracks between within the city of almere from 2, to 4 tracks and all stations will be renewed.

just to let you know

It might be Sloterdijk (that was the station I was thinking about first), but if it first stops in Amsterdam Bijlmer, followed by Duivendrecht, Amsterdam Amstel, Muiderpoort and Centraal. First stop before Amsterdam Bijlmer is Abcoude.

The station on the picture is Sloterdijk, the sign has to be from station Abcoude.

I wish that the Abcoude train station was this big
Anyway, I read somewhere about a new timetable (again) for all trains. When will this come? And when will IC's coming from Amsterdam CS stop in Amsterdam Bijlmer?

Of course I can see that, but they haven't thought about this one than, when putting that sign over there. Ok, it's only an indication of how this train is going to look like, but still.

The train will indeed look like that. I've seen pictures of it while it was standing on a trainyard. That (new) one is there for testing purposes to get the certificates to operate on dutch rails.

Drachten is finally getting a train station [ Underground? ]

Drachten wil treinstation ondergronds


DRACHTEN -
Een toekomstig treinstation Drachten moet grotendeels ondergronds worden aangelegd. Dit wil de gemeente Smallingerland, die grootse plannen heeft voor het stationsgebied.

Ook de A7 zou ter hoogte van Het Zuid overkluisd moeten worden, zodat bovengronds ruimte komt voor nieuwe wegen, flats en kantoren.

Als provinciale staten volgende week het groene licht geven voor de spoorlijn Heerenveen-Groningen, dan biedt dat Drachten en Heerenveen grote kansen, zegt gedeputeerde Piet Adema van verkeer en vervoer. Hij pleit voor verplaatsing van het station in Heerenveen naar het Sportstadgebied.

Smallingerland tackelt met een overdekt station een bereikbaarheidsprobleem. De treinhalte komt namelijk net buiten Drachten te liggen, aan de zuidkant van de A7. Door de snelweg en het spoor in de grond weg te stoppen, kan het verkeer deze barrières omzeilen.

De komst van treinen zorgt er ook voor dat Drachten vervroegd gaat uitbreiden richting Beetsterzwaag. Dit betekent uitstel voor de eerder geplande sprong over de Wâldwei (Drachten-oost). Het vliegveld hoeft hierdoor het eerste decennium niet te worden verplaatst.

Location of Drachten North NL:



Not really professional. I will draw the route when I have the time.

This Station is really important for Drachten. It's a pretty large city in the North, and every city surrounding it has a train station. Now they have to drive to Leeuwarden or Heerenveen.

This is not a Benelux set, this is just a regular IC push pull set from the NS. The driving trailer is a rebuild normal 2nd class coach, the design was only based on the Benelux trailers.

Benelux set, the driving trailer is still in the original colors, the rest of the coaches are in the new design for the temporary shuttle services on the HSL Zuid that should start soon. Those services won't push-pull operated and making the Benelux driving trailers redundant.

And this is how it will look on the HSL Zuid during a test near Benthuizen with the new Bombardier Traxx locos.

And some more trains on the Dutch tracks

Sprinter Light Train (SLT) build by bombardier and Siemens, they are planned to go in service in December between The Hague, Gouda and Utrecht.

image hosted on flickr


The original Sprinter (SGMm), recently completely refurbished. They are used on the urban networks in the Western part of the country, mostly around Amsterdam, The Hague and Rotterdam.

DD-AR set with MDDM driving trailer, mostly used on stopping services and some fast trains in the Western part of the country.

image hosted on flickr


Other DD-AR sets are powered with a class 1700 locomotive.

image hosted on flickr


Plan T / V "Mat '64" or "Stoppers", used in stopping services all over the country. They are now being fased out,

4 car NS Plan T

image hosted on flickr


NS 2 car Plan V in service for Veolia.

Were they will be replaced by GTWs build by Stadler

Interesting topic!

Here a picture of the old Wadloper on the end of the line Leeuwarden - Harlingen:


This train is nowadays replaced by a newer model of Stadler.

pictures by me

Though i liked the older Wadlopers for more nostalgic reasons, the newer trains are a huge improvement. The Stadler are more quiet, they provide more space and they are much faster. During one of my last trips in the Wadloper the exhaust gasses were blown into the cabines because of a broken exhaust system. Pretty disgusting.

Harlingen Haven train station. I was there just 1½ week ago. The new trains are a big improvement indeed. All Wadlopers are out of service now. The last ones were used on the line Nijmegen-Roermond.

Right now it's 0 km/h, since it's not in service yet due to several technical problems causing too many delays.

But the 1st shuttle trains will go only 160 km/h, but they will be replaced by the weird looking trains that go 250 km/h (if they ever come into service, delays, delays, delays.) Plus the Thalys will do it's maximum speed of 300 km/h on the line.
