En-route from the BLS Sud Ardennes Explorer to Luxembourg, the photographer stayed in Metz, at a hotel directly
opposite the impressive railway station. Opened on 17 August 1908, the station was part of a new district designed to
‘germanify’ the city following its annexation after the Franco-Prussian war. It is sometimes referred to as the ‘Station
Palace’ as Kaiser Wilhelm II had apartments inside, now use as SNCF offices. The station had a military purpose too as the
Kaiser wished to be able to transport troops from France to Russia in only 24 hours. The station was therefore sized with
platforms large enough to allow loading of troops on foot and horseback.

EUROPE

[320] Denmark/Sweden - A member’s trip to Germany, Denmark and Sweden, 19 May – 22 May (Part 3)
The main aim of this day was to link up track already done during our member’s only previous visit to
Scandinavia. In 1997, accompanied by two Society luminaries and renowned fixtures organisers, Ray
Hardman and the late and much missed Chris Boyle, he spent a couple of days covering the two train-ferry
services (Korsør - Nyborg and Helsingør - Helsingsborg) that were soon to close, as well as going out via
Puttgarten to Rødby and returning from Trelleborg to the old terminal at Sassnitz.
The day started badly, with the intended service from Vejle not running, despite being shown on the
station departure board. It would seem that this was as a result of the aforementioned major engineering
works taking place between Middelfart and Odense, which involved a lot of single line working, and
significant retiming of services. The one benefit of this was that the quickest route to Odense turned out to
be via Kolding, thus enabling your member to complete the triangle south of Fredericia. His arrival in
Odense was, as a result, an hour later than planned, which was a shame as he discovered that the National
Railway Museum, based in the old locoshed, was running an internal service, using a very authentic looking
Thomas plus three four wheel coaches. The trip started from what appeared to be a very elaborate station
with overall roof, and ran along a track on the north side of the eastbound main line, then climbing away
for a short distance before terminating. At a guess the total running distance would be around 1 kilometre.
Because of the late running, after visiting the very busy Svendborg branch there was less than an hour to
spare, which didn't give enough time to visit the museum, especially as the train looked extremely busy.
Having connected up the first bit of track, as his previous trip only ventured as far west as Odense, its
route was retraced to Nyborg, where no trace could be seen of the line to the train ferry berth. The
harbour itself could be seen and is now derelict, with only the quays remaining. Because the line is
emerging from a tunnel on the other side, it is not possible to see anything of Korsør harbour, but what
looks like the remains of an embankment trails in just before the new station.
The train our member was on was a fast service, only stopping at Høje Tåstrup, and it duly ran via the new
ring line as suggested in EGTRE. It had left Odense 15 late, and further delays meant a 40 minute late
arrival into København H. Despite this delay, there was still an hour and 45 minutes until our member’s
next departure, but as this was going to be on a direct service to Ystad, for which a reservation was
compulsory, a visit to the travel centre was required. As it turned out, it was a good job that there was
plenty of time, because the centre was ridiculously busy and it took the best part of an hour to be served.
After obtaining lunch there were only 15 minutes left before the train departed. This seemed like plenty of
time, but the train left from platform 26, which is at the far south end of the station and entirely separate,
being accessed only from a public road bridge. By the time your reporter arrived, there was only time for a
quick photograph before the train left.
The Ystad service is an interesting one, as it runs primarily to serve the ferries to Bornholm Island, which
although off the coast of Sweden, is in fact Danish, and a very popular holiday destination. The trains are
also of interest to the enthusiast, as they avoid Malmö by taking the direct curve to Malmö Syd, and are
the only passenger services to use this side of the triangle. They also run at different times each day,
presumably dictated by the tides. Unfortunately this service was also beset by delays, thus causing the
onward connecting service to the branch end at Simrishamn to be missed. Deciding to cut his losses, our
member returned to Malmö and on to Lund, to do some more connecting up, before returning to
København airport via the third and final side of the triangle for his flight home.

[321] France - The Raccordement du Sillon Alpin
An opening which appears to have been generally overlooked by the railway press is that of the
raccordement du Sillon Alpin which was inaugurated on 22 February 2014. This new curve connecting the
Avignon – Lyon LGV to the newly electrified Valence-Grenoble line branches off just south of Valence TGV,

uses its own dedicated platform 5 and then curves east immediately on leaving the Gare TGV to join the
Grenoble line. It is used by a few dated Marseille-Annecy TGVs, mainly at weekends.
The trains involved have been entered into EGTRE:- http://egtre.info/wiki/France_-

[322] Italy – Civitavecchia loses Sardegna train ferry connection
Regular shipping services between Civitavecchia and Golfo Aranci (on the Northeast coast of Sardegna, the
island known as Sardinia to the British) started in 1961 for freight and passenger vehicles. From 2000 the
ferry continued taking freight wagons, but not passengers. The train ferry ceased operation in 2009.
On 29 June 2015 demolition started of the loading ramp, and removal of the connecting tracks.
[323] Italy – Roma Laziali to Giardinetti line truncated
It was reported in BLNI1232.164 that the urban railway from Roma Laziali (outside Roma Termini) to
Giardinetti was threatened by the planned opening of Metro Line C, part of which ran parallel with the
railway from Centonelle to Giardinetti. Metro Line C duly opened on 29 June, and on 3 August the eastern
part of the line from Centonelle to Giardinetti closed (3.6km), leaving Roma Laziali to Centonelle as the
operating section (6km).
[324] Norway - Visit to the coastal route through Larvik and Skien
When visiting Notodden (see BLNI 1236.252) our member had been recommended to do the line from
Oslo currently running via the coast through Larvik and Skien. The word ‘currently’ is used as some very
lengthy cut-offs, many in tunnel, are well on the way to completion.
EGTRE stated “Drammen – Tønsberg – Larvik – Porsgrunn: Holm – Holmestrand – Nykirke is to be doubled.
Work on Holm – Holmestrand is planned to start in late 2010 and be completed in 2013” where Holm is
north and Nykirke a few km’s south of Holmestrand. The rebuilt line south from Drammen to Holm and for
a distance south from Nykirke is already finished without any obvious cut-offs being required, but a

substantial new section is under construction from roughly where the current line turns towards
Holmestrand and the coast and then right through to Nykirke. This will involve substantial inland tunnelling
with tunnel mouths finished at each end but in early June 2015 this was only a formation with no track.
There was no evidence of machinery at either end suggesting tunnelling is well advanced, and alongside
the platforms at Holmestrand station there were a number of shafts drilled into the adjacent hillside, so
perhaps replacement of the current tracks by an underground line and station which would then allow a
lengthy section of linear railway through the town to be abandoned.
EGTRE goes onto say “with Holmestrand – Nykirke work starting and being completed one year later; the
realigned and double tracked Barkåker – Tønsberg section was formally opened on 19 November 2011”. It
is suspected this section was again upgrades of fairly straight parts either side of the still open station at
Skoppum where the old twisting alignment through the town is still in use and the closed and lifted branch
to Horten seen and converted to a cycleway. Logically Skoppum will also be bypassed eventually but
approaching Tønsberg the line has already been diverted into a new 6km section, the last 2km being a
double track tunnel with an unusual narrowing at the west end into a one track exit where trains from Oslo
via Drammen arrive into the east end of Tønsberg station, i.e. without traversing the horseshoe curve
around the town which shown on the map. As this tunnel is not shown on any map found beforehand, our
travelling member was totally bamboozled by this and even Google have not yet caught up with this
change. Fortunately another member solved the mystery as per the attached plan, as what has happened
since some time in 2012 is that the old line approaching Tønsberg from Oslo and Drammen which came
parallel to but at a different height to the continuing line towards Larvik has closed, but the complete circle
around Tønsberg where the height was gained/lost is retained.

What had not been appreciated was that the new tunnel line burrows underneath the retained line to
Larvik, so the horseshoe is now a spiral and the new connecting point means trains now travel around the
Tønsberg loop in the opposite direction than before!!!

The sections currently being by-passed are approximately 20km in length and if EGTRE is correct there
could be even more as apparently further along this line as “in September 2012 construction started of a
completely new Larvik (Farriseidet) - Porsgrunn line which will reduce the journey time from 34 minutes to
11; completion is expected in summer 2018”. This is potentially an additional 34km and as at June 2015
there is only a limited with-the-flow to/from Oslo service from Skien, (where there is an EMU Depot) via
Porsgrunn and Larvik. All other trains are bus replaced. As just 9 people in total got off two 10 car EMU’s
arriving at Skien within 15 minutes of each other around 17:30 on a Monday, to your writer this new line
would be staggering if true. The only work seen was a substantial straightening of about 1km just south of
Porsgrunn and loadings are much, much heavier on the Drammen - Larvik section. Note also that the
current Larvik- Porsgrunn line is exceedingly scenic as it follows a line of lakes and then a narrow river
valley once over the watershed.

[325] Poland - An aging hippy does a Polish Woodstock train
Since 1995 there has been a major music festival in Poland called the Polish Woodstock. 750,000 people
attended in 2014. There is a different venue each year, and PKP Regionalne run special trains from all over
Poland to cater for the demand. Some of them do unusual track – some of it much sought after – so are of
interest to the gricing community, and details usually appear in EGTRE a month or so before the event.
This year the event was in Kostrzyn, right by the German border, and as an additional bonus the need to
divert around Wrocław due to ongoing bridge works added further complexity to the routes taken by some
of the trains. In fact our correspondent found that one train, the 06:47 Biełsko-Biała Głowny to Kostrzyn,
was doing no less than four sections of required track. The first obstacle was getting a ticket. Ordinary
tickets and rovers are not valid – you need a special ticket, available by the internet. First it was necessary
to register with PKP Regionalne and get a user i.d. Once that was done a ticket could be booked and paid
for by credit card. A ticket from Biełsko-Biała to Kostrzyn (as he wasn’t sure where he would be leaving the
train) was 69 Zloty, which is about £11 for 489km of travel. This was duly printed out.
Our member travelled from Luton airport to Katowice airport the day before the Woodstock train and,
although the flight was an hour late, succeeded in getting a bus from the Airport to Katowice railway
station, and a Koleje Śląskie service to the large town of Biełsko-Biała, arriving after dark and enjoying a
brisk seven minute walk to his hotel.
Now the problem with joining a train full of young people going to a music festival is that anyone over the
age of 30 sticks out like a sore thumb. At more than double that age our member felt that the rather thin
disguise offered by a Pink Floyd T-shirt and a baseball cap might prevent excessive interest in him on the
train. Indeed, he could qualify as an aging hippy, having been around in the sixties with long(ish) hair and
psychedelically inspired clothing. In the event the train was pretty empty and his quiet corner had only
three young ladies nearby – and he wasn’t complaining about their presence. The train was formed of two
of the ubiquitous class EN57 EMU’s familiar to any rail traveller in Poland. The example he was in had fairly
comfortable seats – a blessing as he could potentially be on the train for over 12 hours. Apart from music
playing in the next coach and a couple of young men wandering through with cigarettes (not allowed, but
the guard was, sensibly, in hiding most of the time), there was little to disturb his reading and study of the
route. After calling at Pszczyna and Rybnik the lines avoiding Sumina station and the Nędza avoiding curve
were taken (both are EGTRE entries) and the train proceeded slowly towards Kędzierzyn-Koźle, passing
through the maze of lines south of the station, but sticking with the normal route. Nothing of interest so
far, but now there was an unexpected manoeuvre. The lead EMU uncoupled and ran round the other
EMU, coupling up to the back. There had been some very jerky starts, so perhaps that was the reason.
Micro-gricers would probably have been ecstatic. Inevitably the train was now late, and would get even
later. Up the main line towards Wrocław now, calling at Zdzieszowice and Gogolin. Soon Opole Groszowice
was approached, and the train commenced a series of crossovers, with terrible groaning noises from
below the train as it lurched over numerous points, finally reaching the tracks for line 277 – the Opole
avoiding line. This is almost 5km long and was our member’s first required track of the day. The train

stopped at Opole Wschodnie, and our member braced himself for an invasion – which fortunately didn’t
happen. The train now set off up line 215 to Wrocław, which normally sees just one passenger train pair a
day. It was a very slow journey, with numerous stops where the doors opened briefly for no apparent
reason. The reason for this routing was the need to avoid the bridge repairs at Wrocław, and that meant
that after Jelcz Laskowice the train would take the single line through Jelcz Miłoszyce onto the 21.4km
freight line to Wrocław Sołtysowice, which is very rare nowadays. This single track line is extremely slow
and has antiquated electrification, including concrete masts. The train crawled along to the sound of Bob
Marley and the Wailers from the next carriage, not speeding up until Wrocław Swojczyce, with its large but
decaying station building, was reached. New track ended at Wrocław Sołtysowice where the Oleśnica to
Wrocław line was joined, and the train carried on to Wrocław Nadrodze where it stopped for several
minutes. The bridge works have led to several trains being diverted around Wrocław while others take
unusual routes (details of both in EGTRE). Two of these routes were to feature shortly, and our member
was suitably keyed up. Sure enough line 752 was taken, a (usually) freight-only curve avoiding central
Wrocław and passing through Wrocław Gądów freight yard, which was exited on line 349, another freight
only curve linking Gądów with the passenger line to Głogów which it joined at Wrocław Kuzniki. Mission
accomplished, and our aging hippy basked in a warm glow of satisfaction. The challenge now was where to
get off. The train was almost an hour late at this point and with no booked stop until Głogów. There were
no unscheduled stops at which he could escape. Slow running soon commenced again, and Głogów was
reach 75 minutes late. More staggering followed, and by now our member was getting concerned that his
plus 90 at Zielona Góra was going to be missed. Fortunately just south of Bytom Odrzański, the speed limit
rose and the train positively flew through Nowa Sól to Zielona Góra. Our member was by the door waiting
to get off, and as the door opened faced a horde of young people with backpacks desperate to get on! He
was obviously leaving just in time. There was time to buy a ticket for the IC train to Poznań, where he used
the free wifi to get a room in a nearby hotel for £35. All in all a successful day, and the Pink Floyd T-shirt
could now go back to gathering dust in a drawer in his bedroom.

[326] Slovenia – new cut-off under construction at Pavlovci
A new cut-off two kilometres long is being built at Pavlovci, north of Ormož. This is to prepare the line to
Hodoš for speeds up to 120 km/h. Transverse displacement of the track in relation to the existing layout of
the track is 160 m. A new station is being built to replace the old Pavlovci station. The plan below (e-BLNI
only as it is in colour) shows the new, straighter, route quite clearly. The green line, originating from a road
and going under the new deviation, is road access to the building site and NOT a railway! Note also the
direction indicator at the bottom left which shows south.

[327] Switzerland - Travels by Steam tour, train and tram around Switzerland (Part 5)
10 January. Steam railcar day. SBB loco 460-070 conveyed the group from Basel SBB to Zürich Hbf, where
Uerikon-Bauma Bahn 0-2-2T railcar No. 31, built in 1902 waited with its trailer coach for a run up to the
terminus of the long branch line to Linthal. The route covered was: Zürich Hbf – Zürich Wiedikon –
Wädenswil – Pfäffikon SZ – Ziegelbrücke – Glarus – Linthal. A photo/servicing stop was made at Pfäffikon
SZ, and another, combined with lunch stop at the station of Glarus, whose picturesque town is the
Cantonal capital of Kanton Glarus. The steam railcar reached Linthal about 14:30. For health reasons our
member returned by the next available service train, changing at Zürich Hbf for Basel SBB. He could have
returned with the steam railcar, on the identical route back, but reaching the hotel many hours later.
11 January. By IC service train from Basel SBB to Lausanne, whence SBB loco 460-001 provided haulage to
Vevey. Here heritage traction began. Sitting in the metre gauge side of Vevey station was CF Blonay-
Chamby 0-4-4-0T No. 105, originally built for the Süddeutsche Eisenbahngesellschaft line from Zell to
Todtnau in S.W.Germany. This provided a vigorous uphill run through onto their own Blonay-Chamby
heritage line depot at Chamby. However the train was detained for 30 minutes at St. Légier Gare, due to an
ordinary service electric train ahead losing power – yes, these do also happen even in Switzerland. Our
member was given to understand that St. Légier Gare was once a junction station, and wondered where
the abandoned line went to? (It went to Châtel-Saint-Denis on the Bulle to Palézieux line. It closed in 1969.
Ed.). Chamby was the lunch stop, and time to visit the lines superb museum collection of steam and
vintage electric motive power from many metre gauge lines across Switzerland. This is understood to be
the best narrow gauge museum collection in the country, and is certainly a worthy complement to the
national railway museum collection in Luzern (the Verkehrshausmuseum).
From the museum depot, steam traction gave way to vintage electric traction for the rest of the day with
Rhätische Bahn (Bernina Bahn) Bo-Bo E motor coach no. 35 hauling the vintage coaches. Joining the MOB
main line at Chamby station, they continued to Montbovon where they reversed. Incidentally the CF
Blonay Chamby lease their line from the MOB as they no longer require it for their passenger services, but
it remains electrified for use by empty stock workings between the MOBs Vevey metre gauge lines and
the MOB main line, including depot access workings. It was noted that apparently the MOB will be funding
a new, replacement, viaduct within the next few years on the Blonay Chamby line for one which is
showing signs of structural life expiry stress. From Montbovon they headed for Bulle along the GFM or La
Gruyère line. A further reversal and run-round at Bulle took them up the branch line to Broc Fabrique
passenger terminus. Bulle to Broc Fabrique is due to be converted to standard gauge soon to facilitate
freight workings; the volume of freight generated makes it worthwhile going for gauge conversion rather
than conveying standard gauge wagons on rollböcke to the standard gauge railhead at Bulle. Our member
(and a few others) remained on the train at Broc Fabrique while the bulk of the party visited the chocolate
works. He was too unwell to face looking at vats of churning liquid chocolate in case he added to the
‘texture’.
On returning on the charter train as far as Bulle, he opted to return from there to Basel via the standard
gauge line to Romont and Fribourg, thence haulage by locos 460-102 from Fribourg to Bern Hbf and 460-
103 thence to Basel SBB via Olten.
12 January. A quiet morning at the hotel before returning home, using SNCF TGV 4401 Basel SBB –
Montbéliard – Dijon Ville – Paris Gare de Lyon via the classic PLM main line; thence Eurostar Paris Gare du
Nord – Ebbsfleet – St. Pancras.

[328] Switzerland – LEB deviation constructed
The metre gauge railway from Lausanne to Echallens and Bercher is known as the Chemin de fer Lausanne-
Echallens-Bercher, or the LEB. The railway closed 3-28 August between Prilly (km2.17) and Romanel
(km4.90) while a deviation was completed just north of Cery-Fleur-de-Lys halt (km2.70). The deviation puts
the line on a bridge over a new road scheme as well as eliminating a level crossing. There is around 200
metres of new track and the work reduces the line distance by about 10 metres (subject to confirmation).

REST OF THE WORLD

[329] Malaysia - Ipoh to Padang Besar line upgrade completed
Work to double-track the Ipoh – Padang Besar line and install 25 kV 50 Hz electrification has been officially
completed. Minister of Transport Liow Tiong Lai rode a test train on 9 July to inaugurate the passenger
service, which is branded ETS Transit (ETS=Electric Train Service) by national railway operator KTMB. The
full service was launched 10 July and a daily ETS Ekspress through train from Kuala Lumpur to Padang
Besar was introduced on 11 July. The launch was brought forward from a planned date in September.
There is initially one through train each way per day, but this is to be increased as further 160 km/h Class
93 trainsets are delivered and accepted.

[330] USA – Sacramento light rail extension inaugurated
Sacramento Regional Transit District held a ‘pre-opening celebration’ on 23 August ahead of the official
opening ceremony for the Blue Line light rail extension from Meadowview Road to Cosumnes River College
on 24 August. The $270m project extends the Blue Line southeast by 6·9 km and adds three stops.
Opening was originally planned for September, but the date was brought forward to coincide with the
start of the autumn semester at Cosumnes River College and Los Rios Community College. The extension
includes more than 2,700 park-and-ride spaces, two pedestrian bridges and a bus/light-rail transit center
at CRC. An additional station at Morrison Creek in south Sacramento is expected to open in 2017 following
future development in that area.

RAILTOURS AND DIVERSIONS OVER NON-PASSENGER LINES

This is provided as a service to members and details must be checked with the organisers.

Poland - Przeworsk avoiding line in use
The new yellow timetable sheets for the 1 September to 17 October period have the Przemyśl TLKs
rerouted from 14 September via Stalowa Wola and the Przeworsk avoider to Rzeszów where they
terminate. It is unclear if this is a temporary engineering diversion or a permanent rerouting.
