The two day Siede tour of the München tram system in April visited an unusual setting at the end of route 22 (Hochschule to
Karlsplatz (Stachus) Nord) where the turning circle at the Hochschule terminus actually goes through a building. It seems that
the tram loop and the building were constructed at the same time. The Tram Services over Unusual Lines (TSUL) section in
EGTRE informs that it is used during working hours Mon-Fri only, school holidays excepted, and as a one stop halt you can do all
the loop on an arrival and a departure with a short wait.

[184] Czech Republic - Gricing with KŽC Part 1 – Through the Czech Republic and into Poland
Your reporter flew from Birmingham to Praha in the evening and the following morning took a fast
service from Praha hlavi nadrazi (Prague main railway station) to Praha- Cakovice where a KŽC special
train was starting from. The unusual starting point is because KŽC use the depot there. For those
unaware of KŽC, they are a small company, run by enthusiasts, who own railcars, locomotives and
carriages which are for hire and often used for organised excursions over unusual lines. The three day
tour in question went into Poland, covering some very rare track and attracting over a hundred
participants with large German and British contingents.

A few words about the KŽC special train may be of
interest. It comprised two class 810 single railcars of a
type once universal on ČD, but becoming less common
now. Between them was a DMU trailer which was to be
used partly for seating and partly for the buffet for
those wishing to eat and drink. Since it is not possible to
move between the three vehicles whilst on the move,
hungry and thirsty people must make use of stops to
purchase sausage in a bun (or similar), various cold
snacks, hot drinks or either of the two beers on tap. KŽC
staff were always present in the buffet area, though
one of the ladies went out for a smoke at most of the
stops and got in the way of the photographers. Each
vehicle had a KŽC steward, and Bohumil Augusta, the
train manager, was wearing full vintage ČD uniform.
A late notification of engineering works on the direct
route to Liberec meant a diversion from Všetaty up line
072 to Velké Žernoseky, where a reversal via a freight
only curve to Žalhostice allowed the train to proceed
via Česká Lípa (large parts of the station area were dug
up for major engineering works) then to Mimoň where
a double reversal gave access to the freight only branch
to Mimon staré nádraží (old station). The branch is about 3 km long and ends in the eastern part of the
town at the old railway station. The two branches diverging right en-route are disused, though just
after the airport branch a factory is rail connected. The day’s destination was Liberec, where the train
passed through the goods yard before taking the line towards Tanvald as far as the east junction for
the Liberec avoiding line. The train reversed onto the avoiding line and travelled to within a few
hundred metres of the west junction. The reason for this manoeuvre was to gain access to the branch
to Liberec dolní nádraži (lower station).

This branch is regularly traversed in the summer months by trains to Babylon Aquapark, a significant
local attraction. Trains can in fact stop directly outside the entrance, but the KŽC special had
permission to continue and pass through the gate into the Liberec City tram depot. This is at the end of
a branch of the tram system without regular services, so the tour participants transferred to two
special trams for the journey to Jablonne, where many of the group were staying.

The end of the Liberec dolní nádraži branch is in the Liberec City tram depot, and the tram tracks are clearly seen in the
foreground.

Having spent the night in Jablonne and caught the service tram into Liberec, the tour resumed from
Liberec station and headed north to Frýdlant v Čechách to pick up those who had stayed in the budget
accommodation. The Czechs are into low cost gricing, but the British, to a man, were staying in proper
hotels.

Mníšek u Liberce is a typical Czech station on the Liberec to Frýdlant v Čechách line

The Czech timetable map shows two branches leaving Frýdlant v Čechách, one to Jindřichovice pod
Smrkem, the other to Černousy. In fact, the line to Černousy is actually a through line into Poland, and
one much sought after by enthusiasts as the border crossing is freight only. Poland was entered almost
immediately, and soon the station of Zawidów was reached. A long heavy coal train was present in the
sidings with two ČD class 742 diesels on each end. A few kilometres north of Zawidów there used to be
a triangle with the south to west curve giving access to the western end of line 290. Unfortunately, this
curve (line 780) has been lifted, so it is necessary to take the south to east curve to join the eastern
end of line 290 for 8km as far as the closed station of Sulików, where the train reversed and went back
the same way to podg Wilka to take the east to west side of the triangle and continue to podg Reczyn
where the Görlitz to Zittau passenger line is joined. This is a fascinating railway, starting and ending in
Germany, but passing through Poland for a considerable distance, making it one of the best known
corridor routes in Europe. It follows the Neisse (Polish Nysa) river, which is the international boundary.
The train stopped at Krzewina Zgorzelecka for photos, with a stern admonition from KŽC staff not to
leave the platform. A few metres from the platform is a bridge over the river over which one can walk
into Germany. When southbound progress was resumed, the striped border markers were clearly
visible near the river, sometimes only a few metres away. The train crosses the river into Germany,
then immediately crosses the river again back into Poland and soon approaches podg. Trzciniec
Zgorzelecki. Here the train diverged left onto the freight line to Turoszów, another highlight of the
tour. Almost immediately there is a triangle on the left giving access to Elektronia Turow, a power
station. The tour continued to the old station at Turoszów, sited next to another power station where

a private owner loco was busy shunting wagons. There are good pictures to be had from the
footbridge here.

Left: A massive loading structure dominates the view at Turoszów station, disused since April 2000
Right: Also from the footbridge but looking right, the power station and its sidings are clearly visible

Until April 2000 there was a passenger service through Turoszów to Bogatynia, mainly for the use of
power station workers, but today the tracks end half way to Bogatynia. Alas, further progress was not
permitted and the tour had to return by the outward route to Sulików. Another missing side to a
former triangle prevented the tour running directly towards Lubań Śląski, so the former south to north
curve must be taken to podg Stadniska on the non-electrified passenger line between Lubań Śląski and
Zgorzelec, which was then taken to the station of Jerzmanki where the train was allowed to reverse
and head for Lubań Śląski. A branch runs south from Lubań Śląski for 10.8km to Leśna (population
11,000). Today this is freight only, and at Leśna it is apparent that a mixture of aggregate from a
nearby quarry and inbound coal traffic is what keeps the branch open. The line ends a few metres past
the former station where the tour stopped for photographs and reversal.

The station at Leśna, closed since 1 October 1991. Note the attached warehouses, a common feature of rural Polish stations in
the Communist era.

This was the best day of the tour and had all been accomplished successfully and on time. The tour
continued to Jelenia Góra and then to Wałbrzych where it headed north to the important junction of
Jaworzyna Śląska. There was another treat here as the train passed through the station to enter the
site of the railway museum, getting as far as the turntable. Time was allowed to look around the
extensive sidings filled with old steam locomotives and rolling stock before taking a service train to
Świdnica (escorted and paid for by KŽC), but for many participants an earlier arrival was considered
desirable, so a large party made the ten minute walk to the station for an earlier train to Świdnica at
their own, trivial, expense.

[185] France/Belgium – Valenciennes – Quiévrain - [Mons] reopening proposed
Reopening of this cross-border link has been proposed several times in the past, but funding has never
been forthcoming. Passenger services on the 12km line are believed to have ended on 3 October 1954,
and freight in April 1992. About 1.6km of track on the French side of the border has been lifted.
The French are keen – the €15M rehabilitation of the line from Valenciennes to the border was
included in this financial years State-Region plan contract. However Infrabel, which manages the
infrastructure of the Belgian rail network, has yet to commit the €2.3M required on their side.

[186] France/Germany – Cross border tramway opens
The extension of Strasbourg's tram line D across the Rhine to Kehl in Germany was scheduled for the
weekend of April 29/30 when a "Tramfest" celebratory event took place.

[187] France - Delle to Belfort update March 2017
The Swiss canton of Jura and the French Region of Bourgogne-Franche-Comté have signed an
agreement on the future passenger services for the Belfort Ville – Delle (Territoire de Belfort on the
Swiss-French border) line due to reopen this December (although some in France speculate it will be
delayed till 2018). PLM opened this line originally 1873 and the 22km section between the border and
Belfort closed in 1992 for passengers and for freight in 2006. The line is currently being rebuilt with 4
intermediate stations and will be electrified with the French 25 kV system requiring CFF to use dual-
voltage rolling stock for the trans-border services. CFF will extend 10 of its hourly services between
Bienne in the Canton of Berne and Delle further to the Belfort-Montbéliard TGV station, where those
continuing to Belfort Ville have to change to a French train. SNCF on its part will run at least 6 return
trips between Delle and Belfort Ville and most likely more between Belfort and its TGV station. SNCF
has promised to offer smooth connections to the high-speed trains. It will be interesting to see how
the Swiss regular interval timetable can be coordinated with SNCF’s rather irregular one.
Infrastructure report: Work at the frontier station at Delle is nearly complete. The station comprises 3
tracks with an island platform connected to the passenger building by a huge pair of steps and two
towers for lifts. The tracks are electrified for 100 metres or so towards Belfort. The station building has
been modernised and a small bar-café-restaurant-tourist office has been created and is open. There is
no sign of any SNCF booking office but there is a SBB automat for tickets to Swiss Railways. The station
is served every hour by an SBB "Domino" railcar set coming from Biel/Bienne – Delémont - Porrentruy.
At the time of the visit, the Swiss train was met by six French Customs officers who out-numbered the

passengers! However, there was no connecting bus to anywhere. Investigating the line towards Belfort
it is apparent that all the new trackbed is complete but none of the track, level crossings or electric
overhead have been installed. The new stations are under construction, possibly 50% complete. At
Grandvillars, two towers for lifts dominate the site next to the original station building which remains
in a derelict state adjacent to the new platforms. At the following station, an island platform seems to
be under construction and there are no towers.
On a new bridge over the LGV Rhin-Rhône adjacent to the Belfort-Montbéliard TGV station, a narrow
island platform is under construction. There seems to be a lift installed that connects this platform
down to the TGV platform and also a subway with steps to the passenger building. The TER tracks here
are not laid or electrified yet. Continuing towards Belfort Ville, the overhead catenary is partially
installed in places. The conclusion of this visit is that this line appears more likely to be finished and
opened in the first six months of 2018 rather than the original official date of December 2017. This
delay has been confirmed in the local press, who suggest the latter half of 2018. Courtesy of the SNCF
Society.

[188] France - Creil to Roissy link a step closer
Construction of the 6km Creil - Roissy (Charles De Gaulle) Airport link became a step closer at the end
of March when the Hauts de France Region voted €105 million towards the project, covering a third of
the estimated cost €311 million. The Minister of Transport had recently said the line would not be
completed until 2030, prompting the contribution from the Hauts de France Region. Unless there is a
U turn by the next government a public enquiry will be held at the end of 2017 with the DUP expected
in 2018, with the subsequent start of work for completion in 2023-2024.
The project will provide a north facing line from Roissy to link the TGV interconnexion IDF arc with
Creil and the Boulogne/Maubeuge - Paris lines. The project includes rebuilding the airport station,
presumably to add capacity for shuttle services from Amiens/Creil. It also covers upgrading of the Creil
- Amiens line. The link will provide local train services from Creil to the airport (50,000 jobs on site) and
open up the possibility of TGV services from Amiens. Courtesy of the SNCF Society.

[189] Germany - Strecke 6710, Eschwege West – Waldkappel
The Verein zum Erhalt von Signal- und Sicherungstechnik e. V. based in Waldkappel is aiming to restart
the “Wehretaldraisine“ operation in 2018 between Bischhausen (km 58,8) and Waldkappel (km 60,9.
For a number of reasons including personnel shortage and intermittent access to the site, the
operation had to be discontinued at the end of 2012 and for safety reasons, some of the facilities had
to be dismantled.

[190] Germany - Replacement line opens on the Waldeisenbahn Muskau
The closure and removal of the Mühlrose branch of the Waldeisenbahn Muskau NG railway has been
covered in BLNI 1177.032 and 1246.430. The replacement branch entered service at Easter, but the
dates when it is in use are already heavily booked. Since most people book single tickets, it should
normally be possible to buy a ticket to travel from the end station of Schwerer Berg back to
Weisswasser. There is a footpath between the two stations, largely parallel with the B156 road, taking
about 25 minutes.

[191] Germany - Passau to Freyung tourist trains to run again this year, but…..
Tourist trains will run again this year on the branch from Passau to Freyung. Timetable and more
information at http://ilztalbahn.eu/files/flyer_2017_web2.pdf. Regular weekend services are not
scheduled to start until 20 May, but the pre-season special service was cancelled due to a landslip.
Report at http://www.buergerblick.de/nachrichten/ilztalbahn-muss-jubilaeumsauftakt-begraben-a-
0000031197.html. It looks from the photograph as if cutting stabilisation work will have to be carried
out, as well as removing all the fallen soil. Ilztalbahn lease the line from DB (according to the
Eisenbahn Atlas), so presumably DB will need to do the repairs. It would be advisable to check before
travelling.

[192] Italy – Provisional date for new cut-off in Sicily quoted
Plans to speed up trains between Palermo and Agrigento include modifications to the track
infrastructure on the 95km section between Fiumetorto, Agrigento Centrale and Porto Empedocle. The
work has been undertaken by RFI with the exception of the Lercara Tunnel which has been managed
by ITALFERR. The tunnel engineering has had difficulties with both the geology and the presence of
methane gas, but breakthrough on the 2.8km tunnel was achieved on 9 August 2016. The project
involves 14 ‘variantes’ to achieve a line designed with minimum planimetric curvature of 1,000 m for a

working speed of 145 km/h. It is assumed in the absence of other information that most of the
variantes are for curve smoothing but there is also mention of ‘abolition of existing levels on the
Fiumetorto-Agrigento route with the creation of substitute works’ and redevelopment of the
Agrigento Bassa-Porto Empedocle line. By far the biggest project is the Lercara Variante.

South of Roccapalumba the line from Palermo divides, with lines going south to Agrigento and east to
Catania. The variante connects the Catania line 7km south of Roccapalumba with the Agrigento line 14
km south of Roccapalumba and passes through the new Lercara Tunnel. Completion of the scheme will
allow the line between Roccapalumba and Cammarata to be closed – almost 14km.
The two ends of the variante are clearly visible on the latest Google satellite photos:
https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@37.7089953,13.6578399,3755m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en
A local press report quotes opening of the Lercara Variante in December 2017, so if you need the
present route consider travelling this year. But this is Italy – deadlines are flexible....
[193] Italy - Ceva to Ormea
Last year a stretch of line next to the Tanaro river was swept away near to Ormea, but it appears that
some specials will go ahead this year after all. Details at:-
http://www.piemontevic.com/viaggi-treno-storico-valle-tanaro.html
http://www.piemontevic.com/attivita-treno-a-vapore.html

Register any interest on any of the dates on the calendar with the tour operator. Tickets will NOT be
available from the FS / RFI outlets.
Late information: - Details of trains in 2017 are now available at http://www.piemontevic.com/viaggi-
treno-storico-valle-tanaro.html, but it appears that most do not run the full length of the branch. Only
the steam trip on 8 December is shown as reaching Ormea.

[194] Slovenia – The Podzemlje Pece Mine, Mežica
This disused lead and zinc mine in the north of Slovenia (about 26 km northwest of Velenje, not far
from the Austrian border), is now an unusual tourist attraction. In a fairly remote and scenic area, it is
most easily reached by private transport. Access to the mine is via the original narrow-gauge mining
train. Visitors start the tour by putting on helmets, high-visibility jackets and head torches. They then
board one of the closed passenger wagons. For anyone suffering claustrophobia, this could be the
worst part of the experience. There is no lighting and the train almost immediately goes into a 3.5km
tunnel and the transit takes some 15 minutes. The ride is very uneven. With prior booking it is possible
to tour the mine by kayak or mountain bike; the first stop the train made was to drop off the kayaking
party. From the main stop, visitors are led on a circular walking tour, moving between several levels of
the mine via steep wooden staircases. An audioguide in English was available. Most of the horizontal
tunnels contained disused railway tracks. The complete tour lasted just under 2 hours and cost EUR10
per person (October 2016). It is a highly recommended visit, whether the train is an extra attraction or
not. The trains are hauled by electric locomotives, powered by a single overhead contact wire. A guide
said that the voltage was 250V. Passengers board and disembark from a dead-end track outside the
visitor centre and alongside the small depot. Your correspondent was too overwhelmed to note the
operational details, but the photos seem to show that the locomotive (no. 3 on his trip, no. 2 took the
next trip) left with its long end leading (cab at the rear) and arrived back with its cab at the front, so
may have been run around a loop during the underground stop.

[195] Spain – Bilbao area update
New Metro Line 3 (6 km from Kukullaga-Etxebarri to Matiko) was inaugurated on Saturday 8 April.
Matiko - Sondika was reopened at the same time. Line 3 has now absorbed the Matiko - Sondika -
Lezama Euskotren line and indeed is operated by Euskotren. The Kukullaga-Etxebarri - Matiko service
is designated L3 and Kukullaga-Etxebarri - Matiko - Lezama E3.
Contrary to expectations, Lutxana - Sondika, which was reopened to passenger to maintain a rail link
to Sondika and Lezama when Sondika - Matiko closed for reconstruction as a Metro line, has not been
closed. Instead, a Monday - Friday 'Lanzadera' (shuttle) service (re)started on Monday 10 April.

[196] Spain - Zaragoza Delícias to Sagunto electrification
Spanish infrastructure administrator Adif has announced that electrification and upgrading of the
Zaragoza - Teruel - Sagunto line will take place over the next four years (2017-20). The cost of €330
million will include a contribution from the Valencia Port Authority of €53 million. At present freight
traffic between Zaragoza and the port of Valencia takes the longer but electrified route via Tarragona
and not on the shorter, direct connection via Teruel which is slower and needs a diesel locomotive.

[197] Switzerland – Temporary line closure
Trains between Samstagern and Pfäffikon (Schwyz) are replaced by buses from 10 July until 13 August
inclusive. This is part of the St Gallen to Luzern "Voralpen Express" route.

REST OF THE WORLD

Correction to BLNI Extra 23 – Cuba
We have been advised that Railcar 2301 was built in Philadelphia USA, not in Canada. The error is
probably due to the fact that 2302 to 2306 are second hand from Canada though also built in
Philadelphia.

[198] Kenya - Long distance passenger trains suspended
Rift Valley Railways (RVR) the Kenya-Uganda concessionaire operating rail freight and passenger
services in Kenya and Uganda, recently issued a notice to inform customers that the Nairobi -
Mombasa long distance passenger train services would be suspended effective from the 1 May 2017.
This is to enable RVR to ‘reorganize’ their services. Freight and commuter services will run as usual.

[199] Peru – Railways very badly affected by flooding
It could be a long time before the trains are rolling again in much of Peru. Peru's rainy season has been
devastating this summer as El Niño has hit the country hard. Most railways are closed with major
repair works needed.

[200] Tanzania - Standard gauge rail construction project launched in Dar es Salaam
The project will cover 1,216 kilometres from Dar es Salaam to Mwanza, with phase one covering 300
kilometres from Pugu (Dar es Salaam) to Morogoro with six stations. Speeds of 160 km/h are planned
for passenger trains. Freight is expected to run to/from Burundi, Rwanda, South Sudan and Congo
DRC.
