Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Luxembourgeois

Chemins de Fer Luxembourgeois

Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Luxembourgeois (Luxembourg Railways, abbreviated CFL) is the national railway company of Luxembourg. In 2005, the company carried approximately 14.1 million passengers and 11.7 million tonnes of goods.[3] It employs 3,090 people, making CFL the country's seventh-largest corporate employer.[2]

The Luxembourgeois rail system comprises 275 kilometres of track, of which 140 km is double track and 135 km single track. There are 617 route-kilometres of track, 574 km of which is electrified. The majority of the electrified track (526 km) is operated at 25 kV, 50 Hz, though some 48 km is run at 3 kV DC.

Luxembourg borders Belgium, France and Germany. Correspondingly, there are cross-border services into these countries. Some are wholly run by CFL, whereas others are run by SNCF, NMBS/SNCB and DB. CFL passenger trains cover the majority of the network.

CFL operate the majority of their passenger trains using EMUs and electric locomotives with push-pull stock. Two DMUs are also in service in CFL livery. They also have a fleet of diesel locomotives for operating freight and general shunting.

The reason I decided to comment on your behaviour is because it stands out among the rest. Most photos posted on this forum are probably posted illegally, but then you suddenly start several threads, posting hundreds of photos without any mention of where they came from just to score some cheap points. You didn't even bother to check if the photos were actually what you said they were; around half of the photos in this thread aren't even of LU trains.

I'm not a diehard copyright activist, probably more the opposite, but (like Teach, probably) you show such arrogance and disrespect towards the people who've worked hard to take these photos and create the sites that hold them, showing no sign of actually understanding why it's wrong. By doing this, you're making it less likely that people will bother to spend their time and money to take photos and run these sites in the future.

Don't get me wrong, I want people to keep posting photos (and no doubt they will), but you could've just spent a little more time to actually do it right and add some quality to your post instead of just dumping everything in there before starting the next thread.

CFL to order more Stadler EMUs
Thursday, April 09, 2015



THE government of Luxembourg has given Luxembourg Railways (CFL) the go-ahead to order 11 additional Kiss double-deck EMUs from Stadler

Six of the dual-voltage (15kV/25kV ac) trains will be used for domestic services in Luxembourg to cope with growing ridership, which is increasing by around 5% per year.

The remaining five units will be used for new services from Luxembourg to Germany from December 2018. These services will run along the west bank of the river Mosel, avoiding Trier Main Station but serving the western suburbs of the German city

Second Luxembourg – Bettembourg line approved
01 Mar 2016



LUXEMBOURG: The government approved plans for the construction of a new line between the capital and Bettembourg on February 26, authorising the route and compensation measures for those affected by the project.

The €292m scheme involves the construction of a 7 km double-track electrified alignment, which would leave the existing line at Howald and then run parallel to the A3 motorway, rejoining the existing route near Bettembourg

Head-on collision this morning at the french-lux border.
EMU against goods train.
EMU train driver reported dead.
Several people in critical condition, some still trapped in the wreckage.
No idea about the cause yet.
One of the locs involved seems to be SNCB HLE 1309.
Same place as another head-on collision in 2006.

According to Luxemburg Wort:

The CFL directors said the new safety system ETCS, equipped on all trains within the Luxembourg network, could have prevented the disaster.

Both the passenger train and the railway line between Luxembourg and Thionville were equipped with ETCS.
However, the French railway company has yet to authorise the system.

The ETCS must therefore be switched off at the start of a journey when the train is destined for France.
Any sense in that? Or, in other words, the tardiness of the railway bureaucracy partially responsible for the accident?

"Equipped" does not necessarily means that it is fully operational already. And then you also have to ensure that all drivers are qualified. But yes it might also just mean that only the required paperwork and signatures are still missing. That's your tax €€€ at work...
