On 10 and 11 December 2016 TransRhinRail ran shuttles from Colmar to Neuf Brisach Ville where there was a large Christmas
market. It had been hoped that the 11:30 from Colmar on the Sunday would be extended a further 1.1km along the private line
owned by the City to Volgelsheim station, from where heritage trains run by the Chemin de Fer Touristique du Rhin operate to
Sans Soucis. However despite the best efforts of the organisers, the City authorities failed to respond, so the train, pictured
above, only went to Neuf Brisach Ville where the picture of the two car Caravelle DMU, festively adorned, was taken. It was full
on the outward journey, so advance booking was indeed essential. Shuttles should also operate in December 2017.

[063] Europe – Interrail promotion
There is a 15% discount on Global and certain one country passes booked before the end of March.
See https://www.myinterrail.co.uk/interrail-passes/one-country-pass-promotion/ for details.

[064] Belgium - Fares for older passengers
Those over the age of 65 can buy a ticket to anywhere in Belgium after 09:00 on weekdays and
anytime at weekends and holidays for €6.00. With an aging membership information like this is of
value to members travelling overseas, so members are encouraged to send in further details of age
related fares and discounts for the benefit of other members.

[065] France - Pont St Vincent to Vittel closes
During 2016 Lorraine completed an ambitious project for its TER rail network, introducing even-
interval services and boosting frequencies. But single track un-electrified branch lines were abandoned
by Grand Est which blamed previous administrations and SNCF. So, with the usual excuse that new
speed restrictions made it impossible to run the timetable properly (= economically), on 19 December
2016 Mirecourt, Contrexéville and Vittel lost their rail services to Nancy. The line from Vittel to Merrey
remains open for the trains of eau minérale bottles, but for how long? Courtesy of the SNCF Society

[066] France – The ghost metro stations of Paris

[067] France – The first part of a multi-country InterRail grice
A railtour in Denmark on 20 August was advertised as doing what the latest Ball European Atlas
showed as an out of use branch to Haderslev, and this gave a member the opportunity to combine this
with the 26 August closure for tram conversion of the DSB branch from Åarhus to Odder. As the
previous weekend was the last of diversions via a freight line in France, on working out the cost of
flights between the two countries it became clear that a 15 day continuous global interrail was just as
economic as flying between them, so the trip evolved into visits to threatened list lines in France, the
diversion, through Germany to Denmark plus gaps in coverage in Sweden en route to a budget flight
from Stockholm to include the four threatened lines in Finland!
This complex itinerary started by flying to Tours which has no buses into the nearby city as the Airport
website advises that public transport access is the north end tram terminus of Vaucanson, a
straightforward 10 minute walk away at the end of the end of the Airport access road. Tours only has
the one tram line so our member decided to travel its entire length. On the southern part towards
Lycee Jean Monnet he found that where it crosses the River Cher between tram stops Suzanne
Valadon and Fac 2 Lions, the tramway is on the exact alignment of a closed SNCF line. Abutments
remain beyond the 90° tram curves on and off the new bridge, plus the old formation is a footpath on
the south side of what was the Chemin de Fer de la Vendee line to Chinon and beyond. Initially they
had their own station in Tours but the section between Tours and Joué-lès-Tours was abandoned from
5 May 1970, with the original viaduct over the Cher demolished as part of a project to canalise and
strengthen the river banks to allow development. The present-day SNCF alignment, connecting Joué-

lès-Tours with the PO main line, was provided at the same time and both the old and new bridges are
known as the Pont de la Vendee. The tram depot is about 0.5km beyond the northern terminus with a
gate across both tracks after 200m.
Next was the threatened SNCF line from Saumur via Thouars to La Roche-sur-Yon, as apart from “le
Train des Plages” pair in summer from Saumur going on to Les Sables D’Olonne on the Atlantic coast it
is impossible to travel this approximately 140km line in one day. Staying at Saumur eliminated any
connection issues for a 08:54 departure, so with the selected Hotel opposite the station, a point was
made to meet the previous evenings return at 21:17. This was a Wednesday/Thursday in mid-August
and over a hundred alighted at Saumur, plus the same 4 car Bi-mode unit the next morning was
standing room only long before journeys’ end. This may in part be due to the inclusion of the whole
line in Region Pays de la Loire €45 two days consecutive TER travel for up to five passengers offer,
(available between 1 April and 30 September 2016) even though this service passes through a large
part of neighbouring Poitou Charentes around Bressuire. Our member considers that there is no way a
line of this length can be covering its costs for passenger services, but fortunately there is sizeable
freight traffic from quarries with associated branches around and east of Thouars so it is thought that
only west of here is under threat of complete closure. The line is even electrified from Saumur to
Thouars and the Bi-mode unit used this, but all the freight trains and locos seen in the area were
diesels.
From Les Sables D’Olonne the plan was to cover the three lines from Nantes to the coast, but on
passing the junction for the inland line to Cholet at Clisson, a search of the excellent offline InterRail
timetable App (highly recommended) revealed just three train pairs a day, with other services buses,
so plans were revised to include this and the other branch to Cholet from Angers. The 17:41 from
Angers on a Thursday was heavily used by commuters, many travelling all the way to Cholet, but the
18:33 departure from there to Nantes had single figure passengers, and its short length track
suggested that if sizeable expenditure became necessary this service would also be under threat.
The following morning was planned for the third of the three coastal lines and was an absolute must as
a recent Today’s Railways paragraph advised that agreement had been reached and finance arranged
for a 4 kilometre realignment of the branch to Le Croisic by 2021. This will relocate the line to run
north of Donges and close the current route which runs through an Oil Refinery. Even Donges station is
inside the complex. Travelling over the line suggests that roughly half of the existing route would be
needed to serve the refinery, and any new line would re-join the existing route at the west end near to
an existing junction to an in-use electrified branch to a substantial harbour system.
The next objectives were the weekend only diversion of IC services from Paris Nord towards
Maubeuge via the freight line from Ormoy-Villers to Le Meux-Croix-St Ouen due to major track works
at Creil, combined with the summer only enhanced services to the northern coastal resorts of Le
Treport and Dives-Cabourg. After an Ouigo “no frills” TGV from Nantes to Tourcoing skirting Paris via
Charles de Gaulle airport station plus an EGTRE listed rare curve at Lille, Le Treport was first,
approaching via Abbeville on a line which normally has just one pair of trains a day, with enhanced but
unbalanced by day services on summer weekends. As Le Treport is the terminus of two lines, the ideal
scenario was to travel in on one and out on the other but research showed this was only possible
without spending many hours in Le Treport on one combination a week, based around the service
from Laon departing Amiens at 09:36 on a Saturday. This arrived as a well filled 12 coach DMU, and on
the branch vegetation was hitting the train sides, although apart from one section track condition and
speed were reasonable. Le Treport station is on the opposite side of the river mouth to the main part

of the town and there is no nearby road bridge, so pedestrians have to walk over two harbour lock
gates, which are just wide enough for prams etc., to reach it. This must put off locals so the enhanced
summer loadings could be what keep these lines open. After a pleasant 1h 25m on the coast in
glorious sunshine, the mid-morning departure on the other line towards Beauvais was a 4 car DMU
and unsurprisingly lightly loaded. It was noted with amusement that the junction one station outside
Le Treport is at a village named Eu! (On board announced as "Uh"……).

The delightfully named station of Eu is in the outskirts of Le Treport

Continuing into Paris the diversion was covered in the late afternoon on a round trip from Paris Nord
to Compiègne, with plans then to go to Dives-Cabourg on the Sunday. Unfortunately, on arriving at
Paris Saint Lazare the next morning our member discovered that the station was completely closed for
engineering work until 13:00. Interrail App searches confirmed that it was impossible to get to Dives-
Cabourg and back by train once services resumed, but as Caen and Dives-Cabourg are not that far
apart, if there was a bus the branch could still be done one way, so the decision was made to risk it. On
arrival at Caen what should have been a missed minus 4 minute bus connection was made thanks to
the driver initially having a problem with his ticket machine, but there was a later departure anyway so
the plan would still have worked! This earlier arrival gave time for a wander to the beach at Cabourg, a
brisk 20 minute walk away as Dives-Cabourg station is on the edge of the conurbation. The 17:31 train
had few passengers on departure but quickly filled at the numerous intermediate stations towards
Trouville-Deauville (which has IC's to Paris) so even though services only run to Dives-Cabourg in
summer plus winter weekends, it not being on the threatened list appears correct.
Travels in France were going remarkably well apart from the Saint Lazare engineering work, a total
contrast to attempts in May where operational issues plus the first series of National and even local
strikes meant numerous missed lines, so with the flexibility of an InterRail plans were revised to
remain in France for additional days. At the top of your travellers wish list was a second attempt at
Bourg-en-Bresse via Oyannax to St Claude as in May the expected connecting train after arriving from
Dole from the north was bus substituted as an alleged knock on effect of a previous strike. So after a
positional day from Paris Bercy (which is being renamed Paris Bercy - Burgundy Pays d'Auvergne on 13
September) to Lyon via main and secondary routes not previously ticked off led to St Claude being
reached successfully the next day, and your correspondents opinion is that the 32km north of Oyannax
is seriously threatened for continuing train services due to minimal loadings, very poor track, slow
speeds and just three pairs a day. With now three days to reach the agreed in advance Danish tour
joining point at the far end of a branch, thoughts turned to what new SNCF track could be done en-
route combined with an ICE dash across Germany, which meant heading north on one of just two daily

passenger services that use the line from Merrey to Neufchateau. Perhaps surprisingly they are both
TGV’s between Dijon and Nancy but timings unfortunately meant this was not on the one of the two
that also avoids Culmont-Chalindrey. A night in Nancy led nicely into doing one of the four pairs a day
from Epinal to Lure to reach Belfort and then Strasbourg to leave France, but in trying to squeeze in as
much track as possible relied on a 9 minute connection from a train arrival to an SNCF bus departure if
doing the Remiremont branch before Epinal! This was risked as that line would be left unvisited some
way from any other required track, and although late running and a held connection at Arches
suggested this was foolhardy, the only problem in the reduced time at the branch end was establishing
which vehicle in the adjacent bus station was the SNCF one, so everything worked out. Two InterRail
App stated connections of less than 10 minutes also fell into place meaning the 13:55 TGV from
Strasbourg to Frankfurt could be caught to complete the French part of this odyssey.

[068] Poland – Steam over freight lines
Polish travel group Turkol are organising a number of multi-day steam tours with significant freight line
content. Details (in Polish) at http://turkol.pl/ on the right hand side of the home page.
Although organised by Turkol, as you might expect Wolsztyn Experience have some involvement in
these trips and for four of them are organising bookings for a British party including accommodation.
Booking for the whole trip through them means you will be seated in a first class carriage at the front
of the train and be sat with other UK cranks. Julian Worth, the UK booking co-ordinator will be happy
to take bookings for the full trip(s). If you have any queries please email him at [email protected] hotmail.com.
He would prefer to receive payments in the form of cheques as it is easier to keep track of things,
payable to Wolsztyn Experience please. Payments can be sent to:-
J Worth, Appleton House, West Street, Childrey, Wantage, Oxon OX12 9UL

[069] Portugal – Rehabilitation of Guarda – Covilhã finally starts
Minister of Planning and Infrastructure Pedro Marques has announced the start of work to rehabilitate
the Guarda – Covilhã section of the Beira Baixa route by mid-2019. To be completed within a budget of
€88m, rehabilitation of the railway, which has been out of use since 2009, would provide a strategic
link on a north-south axis within Portugal as well as providing a cross-border route into Spain via the
frontier crossing at Vilar Formoso. The European Union is to cover 85% of the cost, and the project
forms part of the Ferrovia 2020 Investment Plan issued by Infraestruturas de Portugal in February
2016. This in turn is mostly based on the PETI3+ proposals developed by the previous government.
The rehabilitation work consists of electrification, reinforcement of six steel girder bridges and track
renewals along 46 km of the route, complementing a 10 km section that was renovated under a
previous investment programme. Station refurbishment is planned at Maçainhas, Benespêra and
Barracão. Level crossings around Guarda are to be removed where possible, or fitted with automated
gates and warning systems. Once completed, the modernisation work should allow CP’s regional
passenger services to link the two towns in 40 minutes and permit the operation of 600 metre long
freight trains. Works are expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2019, with trains expected to
resume by the summer.
Approval has also been given to start work on the Beiras Link, a 1.5 km single track electrified chord
that would provide a connection at Galegas between the Beira Baixa and Beira Alta lines. This would
relieve capacity constraints and provide an alternative route for freight trains between Spain and
Portugal, avoiding the Porto – Lisboa main line. It is also intended to complete work to enable
750 metre long freight trains to run over the Beira Alta corridor linking Vilar Formoso with Coimbra
and Porto.

[070] Serbia/Bulgaria - Niš to Dimitrovgrad loses passenger service

From 1 February the two International trains which used this line ceased to do so and instead trains
run Beograd -Niš and Dimitrovgrad-Sofia with no alternative transport provided on the non-electrified
Niš to Dimitrovgrad section. Loadings have always been poor, so whether or not the summer months
will see through services resume remains to be seen.

[071] Spain – The Irun to Bilbao railway, points of interest
This Euskotren railway was traversed recently, almost ten years since our member first travelled the
line. There were a number of new cut-offs and buried sections that have been commented on before
but it was actually slightly frustrating knowing these were there but rarely being able to spot the "old
route". Progressing westwards an obvious new section trails in from Altza in the form of a twin track
tunnel on the left. On alighting at Herrera a train going to Altza arrived within a minute, and reached
Altza after two minutes. The return service left within two minutes meaning that the "branch" was
done in six or seven minutes! At Altza the tunnel carries on and is supposed to reach Pasaia, thereby
eliminating the current alignment. However no evidence of this could be determined at either end. A
realignment clearly still under construction is at Loiola where the current bend right through the
station is being straightened out and work is far advanced and continues actively so perhaps this is one
project that will see completion in the near future. On entering the environs of Bilboa at Etxebarri the
new twin track tunnel was complete but without wires, so this appears well advanced towards
creating Metro line 3. What will then happen to the existing line into the terminus station?

[072] Spain – Travelling on the Amorebieta N-E curve
Trains normally run from Bilbao to Bermeo direct via the west to north curve of a triangular junction,
but on Sunday mornings between midnight and 06:00 four train pairs run from Bermeo to Amorebieta
Geltokia via the east to north curve. Our member waited at Amorebieta Geltokia for the first of these
services to arrive from Bermeo. After a connection with a late night train from Bilbao, the return
service set off for Bermeo with 30 people on board including our member. How well the next three
trains fill can only be guessed at, but this service has run like this for many years so must be seen as
worthwhile.

[073] Turkey (European and Asiatic) - Work resumes on Marmaray tunnel
The Marmaray immersed tube tunnel which links railways on either side of the Bosphorus Strait
opened on time in October 2013, but upgrading of approach routes to create a 77 km high-capacity
corridor between Halkali on the European side and Gebze in Anatolia has been subject to considerable
delay. OHL was appointed to lead the project in October 2011, which includes station rebuilding work
and triple-tracking on the Asian side to allow long-distance and high speed trains to serve Istanbul’s
Haydarpașa terminus. Now it seems a contract modification has been agreed with the Turkish
government and work is reported to have restarted on sites at Atakoy and Zeytinburnu on the
European side and Kartal, Bostanci and Kiziltoprak in Anatolia. The revised completion date for the
work is now 31 December 2018.

REST OF THE WORLD

[074] Australia - Solar power for Melbourne trams?
Melbourne’s extensive tram network could soon be running on electricity supplied by large-scale solar
power plants under plans unveiled by the government of the Australian state of Victoria. Around
35MW of power from the proposed solar farms will be linked to Melbourne’s tram network with the

government voluntarily surrendering renewable energy certificates to match the amount of electricity
used by all of Melbourne’s trams. A tender will be issued soon to build Victoria’s first large-scale solar
farms with a capacity of 75MW, by the end of 2018. At 250km, the Melbourne tram network is the
largest in the world, carrying 204 million passengers annually.

[075] Chile -Rancagua Express carries first passengers
State railway EFE began trial operation of its new commuter service between Santiago and Rancagua
on 24 January. Initially there are three departures from the capital during the morning peak, and one
at 20:45 on Fridays. There are departures from Rancagua at 07:20, 10:00 and 19:30. From 2 May it is
intended to start operating throughout the day, with the end-to-end journey time reduced from 90
minutes to 70 minutes. Operating from Rancagua in the morning and from Santiago in the evening, an
express service will run non-stop to cover the 81.8 km in just 60 minutes. The project has involved
track renewals, the refurbishment of 10 stations and the introduction of smart card ticketing as well as
the acquisition of a new fleet of EMUs.

[076] Djibouti - New line to Ethiopia inaugurated
A ceremony was held at Nagad station in Djibouti on 10 January to mark the official opening of the
new 752km electrified standard-gauge railway to the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa. The railway was
inaugurated in Ethiopia on 3 October, when trial services began. Commercial operation of passenger
and freight services is expected to start early this year.

[077] Peru - For those who like a little comfort in their train travels
Belmond has revealed that it will launch South America’s first luxury sleeper train, the Belmond
Andean Explorer, in Peru. The new train, expected to launch May 2017, is set to travel along one of the
highest rail routes on earth traversing the Peruvian Andes from Cusco to Lake Titicaca and Arequipa.
The train accommodates 68 guests in en-suite cabins including two double cabins, 20 twin cabins and
12 bunk bed cabins for two people. And there’s an observation car. For more information see
