Vorgebirgsbahn electrification contract
15 Sep 2015



GERMANY: Häfen & Güterverkehr Köln has awarded SPL Powerlines Germany a contract to install electrification equipment as part of the doubling of 2·1 km of single track line between Brühl and Badorf on the Vorgebirgsbahn inter-urban light rail Line 18 between Köln and Bonn.

The work began this month and is scheduled for completion in 2017. Most of the electrification equipment installation is to be done before the track and civil engineering works are completed, and so the overhead lines will be mounted on 20 aluminium gantry portals and cantilever supports which will be swung into position and accurately aligned once the track is in place

And so it happened and new underground tram stations were opened yesterday, meaning complete change of several Dusseldorf tram routes, which are dissapeared on surface and put below ground. Article from Guardian on new tram tunnel:

Rhein-Ruhr-Express depot construction launched
07 Mar 2017







GERMANY: The foundation stone for the Rhein-Ruhr-Express maintenance depot was laid in Dortmund-Eving on March 7. Siemens is building the 70 000 m2 facility on the site of a former marshalling yard on the Dortmund – Lünen main line.

A 163 m long, 63 m wide and 12·4 m high six-track maintenance hall is being built, along with a warehouse, administrative and staff welfare building and an outdoor train cleaning facility. There will be around 5·5 km of track in total, as well as an underfloor wheel lathe and wheelset diagnostics system. According to Siemens, the facility will use around 15% less energy than the recommended standard set by the European Energy Saving Ordinance

I'm investigating the Tram Depots of Western Europe, and I'm now looking at Duisburg.
According to my research, the Duisburg system has 2 depots...
1) GRUNEWALD - in the south, on the east side of Dusseldorfer Strasse,
2) MULHEIM - on the west side of AN DER WERKSTATTE.
In looking for more depots, I found 2 other tram-stops in Duisburg with the word BETRIEBSHOF as part of the name. I understand that Betriebshof is the German word for Depot, so were there more depots that were closed, but the tram-stop was no re-named?
I couldn't find a thread dedicated to Duisburg, but I believe it is part of the Rhine-Ruhr area. What other tram systems are considered as part of the Rhine-Ruhr area?

Thanks in advance

In Rhine-Ruhr area, there are tram systems in Düsseldorf, Duisburg, Essen, Mülheim, Bochum - Herne - Gelsenkirchen and Dortmund. Wuppertal is also part of that area, but it doesn't have tramway system, of course

Krefeld also has a tram network. Rhine-Ruhr is sometimes also meant to include the Cologne-Bonn agglomeration that is directly adjacent to the south. Two separate S-Bahn lines connect Duesseldorf and Cologne. Altogether Rhine-Ruhr consists of twenty big cities of more than 100.000 inhabitants each and numerous smaller ones. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhine-Ruhr
