I'll start with posting some info about Swedens first real highspeed train, "Gröna tåget" which is being developed by Banverket and
Bombardier (and a few others).

Most of you (probably?) know about the IC4 already... which is over 3 god dang years late!!!
It's being built by the same italian company that built Metroen in CPH.. (huge mistake by DSB :bash: )

Anyway, here's what it looks like: (photos © DSB.dk):












A test drive, in Århus i believe:

"Oikorata" - 63km of new high speed tracks

Since 3rd September it will be significantly easier to reach Eastern Finnish towns - the new 63km long high-speed contingent between Kerava and Lahti will be opened. "Oikorata" allows the max speed of 220km/h.





New railway tunnel between Helsinki and Tallinn?

The whole project would cost something between 1,3 and 2,1 million eur. After all it's not so much - for comparison: the western extension to Helsinki metro is calculated to cost something between 390 and 450 million eur.

In 2002 1,3 tons of freight and 6,1 passengers were transported between Helsinki and Tallinn. For comparison it would be interesting to know the analogous numbers of Copenhagen and Malmö before the Öresundbron was built?



Option 1: Helsinki-Ruoholahti-Rohuneeme-Maardu-Tallinn
- total lenght 105km (83km in tunnel)

Option 2: Helsinki-Masala-Porkkala-Rohuneeme-Maardu-Tallinn
- total lenght 120km (63km in tunnel)

But I'm afraid they will end up to train ferries.

Bruckner said:
But that 220 km/h speed is only in paper. The railtracks are not in good enough condition to drive that speed except only in some places.
Yep. VR (=Varkaiden rautatiet ;)) loaded the last decade to develop the train furniture. Now we have quite good trains but the track network needs some development to be "Western European class". So we have to wait a few more decades.

I am not sure that tunnel is a good idea in a long term! Firstly there isn't so many people living in finland and estonia, about 7mln altogether, secondly there's an alternative growing number of low-cost airlines moving to this region, and thirdly it would probably be like the "eurostar" tunnel, which is making losses at the moment!...I say go for a bridge!

sure, they look good, but those idiots can never seam to get them build. It has got to be one of the worst run companies ever, and im pretty sure the danes are the only once stupid enough to deal with them, even after we got screwed with the metro....

what was it George Bush said or wanted to say "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, sham on me..,"

yeah, i know what he said, it is one of my favorite bushisms...But as I wrote, that was what he ment to say...

btw, all this train talk is making me relivemy old dream of creating a luxury scandinavian train, like The Orient Express or The Royal Scotsman, runing through Denmark, Sweden and Norway...
