After a few celebratory beers the previous evening to commemorate the end of the PTG Northern Sweden rail-tour,
a member was mystified to wake up in the middle of the night inside the concourse of Stockholm Central station.
Fortunately he soon realised that it was actually his bedroom in the nearby Central Hotel.


[300] Belgium – Online maps

[301] Germany – Torgau port reopens
Torgau is on the Leipzig to Cottbus line, between Eilenburg and Falkenberg. There is a short branch to
a harbour on the river Elbe and the track and transhipment facilities in the port area have recently
been renewed, reopening of the port taking place on 23 May 2018. Work has now started on relaying
the tracks from the port to the station with completion expected in November 2018.

[302] Germany - Fuchstalbahn uncertainty
From Kaufering, on the München – Buchloe railway, a
passenger branch runs south to the city of Landsberg – the
southern part of a railway known as the Lechtalbahn. Track
continues south for 28.7km to Schongau, and this freight
only section is known as the Fuchstalbahn. From Schongau
passenger services resume to the station of Weilheim on
the München to Garmisch-Partenkirchen railway line, and
this is known, quite delightfully, as the Pfaffenwinkelbahn.
Passenger traffic between Landsberg and Schongau ended
in 1984, but occasional special trains have run, mostly
organised by the Verein Initiative Fuchstalbahn, a society
founded to promote the passenger reopening of the
railway. A major problem is that the railway was built
mainly for freight, and stations are remote from the
communities they purported to serve. Track condition does
not appear to be an issue - owner DB Netz refurbished
most of the line between 2010 and 2013. Freight has been
operated since 1998 by the Augsburger Lokalbahn.
A decisive blow to the reopening campaign occurred in
October 2017 when the Managing Director of the
Bayerischen Eisenbahngesellschaft (Bavarian Railway
company) declared that “the reactivation of the
Fuchstalbahn is over for us, that is no longer an issue”.
Faced with an inability to achieve its goals and falling
membership, the members of the Verein Initiative
Fuchstalbahn voted in April 2018 to dissolve the society
and join the regional passenger association Pro Bahn. There
are persistent rumours that the Fuchstalbahn is to be
completely closed and the tracks removed, but no official
statement to confirm this. One section which would survive
is the southernmost section of the Fuchstalbahn. There are

plans to extend the Weilheim to Schongau service up the Fuchstalbahn to a new station at Schongau
Nord, close to the Schongau hospital.
Against this background members may wish to note that special trains run by Bahnpark Augsburg will
run over the line, on Sundays 7, 14 and 21 October. Details on the internet at http://www.bahnpark- Look for “Lech-Romantik-Bahn” under “Angebote.” Map courtesy of OpenStreetMap

[303] Germany/Sweden – Train to ferry in Germany and Sweden
The obvious way to reach the TT-Lines ferry from Travemünde (Germany) to Trelleborg (Sweden)
seemed to be the hourly train from Lübeck Hbf to Lübeck-Travemünde Skandinavienkai. The train
journey itself was straightforward enough. At the single-platform station signs pointed to the ferry
terminal via an underpass. At the other side was a closed security gate into the harbour area, with a
sign telling ferry passengers to use the service bus to the terminal. Fortunately the bus arrived quite
soon; at the ferry terminal they were directed to wait downstairs for another bus that would take
them to the ferry itself. This was a full-size bus but they were the only passengers; they put this down
to being late arrivals.
At Trelleborg foot passengers were instructed to wait in the ferry’s main reception area. It was at this
point they realised that they were actually the only foot passengers. They got a personal escort
through the car decks to dry land, where they seemed to be surrounded by lorries and cars heading in
all directions. There seemed to be some confusion about their next move, but eventually another full-
size bus arrived and they set out on a complicated route through the port, passing a railway station
labelled ‘Trelleborg’ (later they worked out this was the ‘Maritime’ station, which is not an advertised
stop on the Berlin-Malmö train, the only passenger service to use this route). After having two locked
gates opened, they were finally outside the port and it was a very short walk to the elegantly restored
Trelleborg Central station (two terminal platforms and overall roof), where passenger services,
normally at 30-minute intervals, were reinstated in December 2015.
Sweden is supposed to be very expensive but the fare for a journey of just over 3 hours and around
150 miles from Trelleborg to Karlskrona was a reasonable SEK 242 (around £20.60).

[304] Italy – Lavis station goes underground
The Ferrovia Trento-Malè-Mezzana (FTM) is a metre gauge electric railway connecting Trento with
Malè, and since 2016, to Mezzana. The town of Lavis is north of Trento and actually has two stations,
one on the main line between Verona and Bolzano, the other on the FTM about 1.5km away and
located in the town centre where the presence of the railway has caused serious traffic problems. The
solution to these has been to relocate the station underground in a 760 metre long double track
tunnel. This was inaugurated on 28 July 2018 and opened to the public on Sunday 29 July 2018.

[305] Poland - A day in Hel
If you’re bored one winter evening you could always challenge a timetable planner to have a go at Hell
(Norway) to Hel (Poland) – certainly a feasible journey although likely to take the best part of two days
by train. Hel is interestingly placed at the southern end of a long thin peninsula jutting out into the
Baltic north and east of Gdynia. This position gave it huge military importance in the 20th century (this
is supposed to be where WW2 finally ended in Poland), continuing into the Cold War era, and remains

of fortifications can be seen everywhere. Nowadays Hel is a holiday destination and quiet sandy
beaches are one of the main attractions.
Probably the quickest way of reaching Hel from the ‘mainland’ is by boat from Gdynia or Gdansk, but
trains are also an option. Rails can still be seen in the port area, but nowadays the station is at the
north edge of the town. Services are irregular – mainly to/from Gdynia (about 1h 50m) but also some
long-distance services, including to/from Warszawa in the summer season. The route is mainly single-
track (non-electrified) and not very scenic for the most part as it runs through flat pine forests, though
near the northern end, at the narrowest part of the peninsula, there is a short stretch close to the sea

The train formation for the 16:14 Hel - Gdynia Główna on 8 June was slightly eccentric – two 2-car
diesel units with an extra passenger coach sandwiched between them.
[306] Poland - Trams in North Central Poland
Although this is by no means a full BLS report on all lines, curves, etc, a recent visit included at least a
superficial look at six tram systems, with brief notes as follows:
Gdańsk – a very busy and extensive system (55km, 10 lines – info from Robert Schwandl book) –
standard-gauge, unlike all the other systems visited. Trams operate on both sides of the lines through
the main station (Gdańsk Główny). The loop through Nowy Port using lines 3 or 5 (western section)
and 10 (eastern part) has some long sections of single track (generally used in one direction only)
running along the side of main roads and through narrow streets in Nowy Port itself. The western
section of the loop offers glimpses of the former SKM heavy-rail route to Nowy Port, closed since
2005. The change between lines 5 and 10 in Nowy Port proved confusing and ultimately needed a walk
around the corner (from looking at the map this was probably from the stop Plac Wolności to Nowy

Port Góreckiego, both on single-track, single-direction sections). Trams run close to the old town area
but not through it (since 1959).
Elbląg – 5 lines, 15.6km – feels like a bit of a survival. Although some relatively modern trams are in
use, on the day of our members visit (a Saturday) most were antique single-ended single cars, service
intervals were quite long and passenger numbers light. Trams pass close to the main station and are
also convenient for reaching the old town district.

Elbląg tram at Królewiecka Światowid

Olsztyn – currently 3 lines, 10km, although construction of an extension seemed to be well advanced,
at least in the main station (Dworzec Główny) area. The system only opened in 2015 and is operated
by modern double-ended trams with on-board ticket machines – a 24-hour ticket costs PLN 10. Rather
strangely it is not possible to travel directly from the main station (served by lines 2 and 3) to the town
centre (served by line 1) – a quick change of direction at Skwer Wakara is needed. It was a bit strange
that trams needed to wait for some time at road junctions rather than having priority over road traffic.
The terminus of line 1 is on a short section of single track at Wysoka Brama, which is directly opposite
the main gate into the old town district. Trams heading south from the town centre generally use
dedicated tracks, not shared with road traffic, and tackle some significant gradients. The branch to the
university (Uniwersytet/Prawocheńskiego), served by line 3 on a basic 30-minute interval, is single-
track with one passing loop and two tracks at the terminus, which is on the opposite side of a busy
main road from the university.
Toruń – 5 lines, 22.5km. Served by a mixture of old and new trams. Trams run only on the north side of
the Wisła (Vistula) river and so do not serve the main station (Toruń Główny) on the south side.
However, there are tram stops close to Toruń Miasto (town) and Wschodnia (east) stations. Nearly all
mainline trains stop at both these stations, although Miasto, at least during our members visit, was

unstaffed with no ticket office or other facilities. Trams run along the edge of the old town district, but
no longer through it – a small section of track survives. A trip along line 3, west of the town centre,
proved rewarding; the line runs through the leafy Vorstadt district of the former Prussian town of
Thorn, mainly on single track along the roadside. Toruń escaped any significant damage in WW2. The
departure displays at tram stops show the wheelchair symbol alongside services operated by the
newer trams – helpful if you would prefer to avoid these. New trams have onboard multilingual ticket
machines but they appeared to sell single tickets only.

Torun tram at Mickiewickza

Grudziądz – 1 line, 8km. This is the smallest town in Poland (population just under 100,000) to have
retained tram services. On the mainline railway, it felt like a real transport backwater, served only by
Arriva diesel units stopping at all stations. Grudziądz was added to their itinerary without any advance
planning, so they arrived without a tram map. Arriving at the main station (‘post-apocalyptic’
according to our travel guide, but maybe it has been slightly improved since), it felt like a
disappointment from a tram point of view. There was a tram depot across the road from the station,
but the single roadside tram track looked very little used. They wondered if the whole system had
been shut down. A close look at timetables showed that a few early-morning and late-evening services
do operate on the station route, but in the middle of the day a 10-minute walk (or a bus ride) was
needed to reach tram line 2 – actually the only line – which was operating at roughly 10-minute
intervals. The trip into the old town centre was a very good experience, running on a single track
(actually two interlaced tracks) through narrow streets and along one side of the main market square
(Rynek Główny), where trams can pass on a short double-track section. Trams are a mixture of antique
and slightly newer models.

Bydgoszcz – 9 lines, 40km. This is an important railway junction where the town seems to be mainly off
the tourist map. There is now an ultra-modern railway station to the south of the tracks at Bydgoszcz
Główna; the original building has been retained in the middle of the tracks. Trams are a mixture of
antique and newer types.
[307] Serbia - Topčider becomes a temporary terminus
Topčider station is 4.4km south of the former Beograd Glavna terminus station on the line to Rakovica
and the south and south east of the country.

Map courtesy of

The original station was destroyed in WW1 and rebuilt in 1931 with a royal waiting room attached. The
station was again destroyed in WW2, but the royal waiting room survived and is now the passenger
hall. From June 2018 trains to and from Montenegro and the summer-only train to/from Sofia are
starting and terminating here. Tram line 3 connects it with the centre of Beograd, the journey time
being 30-35 minutes. No notice to this effect was seen at the former starting point of Beograd Centar
by a recent visitor, just an absence of the Bar and Sofia departures on the screens. The reason
Topčider is being used is that it has a car loading ramp, but this is a temporary situation. Suitable car

loading facilities are to be constructed at Zemun in the north west of Beograd, and once complete will
allow cars to be loaded and trains to call at Beograd Centar before proceeding south.

[308] Ukraine – Desperate times on one of the last remaining narrow gauge passenger lines
This is the narrow gauge line from Antonivka to Zarične (also spelt Zarichne). At the end of November
2017 the last TU2 diesel locomotive failed and since then trains have only run on Wednesday, Friday
and Sunday, always with TU-0767, which is the only operational locomotive. If this is not available,
then the train is cancelled.


[309] Brazil – Cuiabá light rail system to be finished
Tenders have been announced to complete the remaining 45% of the light rail project in Cuiabá,
originally due to open in 2014 for the World Cup. The original contract in this city in Mato Gross state
was cancelled due to the construction consortium failing to deliver what it promised and fraudulent
activity in the contract process. There are two lines, totalling 22.2km with 33 stations. The first line will
link the Administrative Political Centre in Cuiabá with the Marechal Rondon International Airport in
Várzea Grande. The second line will link the Coxipó Region to the South Centre, both in Cuiabá. 40
Light Rail Vehicles had already been purchased and have been in storage for almost five years.

[310] Japan - Exploring Japan’s abandoned train lines
Admiring the decaying beauty of abandoned railroads is just one of myriad hobbies Japan’s railway
enthusiasts indulge in. The May issue of the bimonthly Tabi to Tetsudo (Travel and Railways) featured
deserted railroads on its cover, a first since it was rebooted in 2011 under a new publisher. The cover
story introduced readers to numerous sites scattered across the nation, including the Taushubetsu
Bridge in Hokkaido. Erected in 1937 as part of an extension of a local train line, it fell into disuse in
1955 and is known as the “phantom bridge” because it gets submerged every summer when the water
level in the lake it stands in rises due to melting snow and rainfall.
Among the throngs of train experts, fans of train-related ruins (haisen-tetsu) are known for paying
homage to railways that went derelict due to historical, economic and geographical factors. The recent
trend, however, appears to target a wider audience by focusing on entertainment rather than
In April 2017, 15 groups from 12 prefectures gathered in Gifu Prefecture to create the “Lost Line
Association” to promote the recreational use of defunct railways to revitalize their aging rural
communities. After the Kamioka Railway discontinued services in 2006, the group began offering rail-
bike tours, fastening mountain bikes together to ride along part of the tracks. Prices for tours start at
¥3,000 and the attraction has been a hit, drawing around 40,000 customers a year, mainly tourists.
The Takachiho Railway in Miyazaki Prefecture also received a new lease on life after it closed in 2005
following extensive typhoon damage. Amaterasu Railway, the company that took over management of
the rail line, decided to provide visitors sightseeing rides using carts that run on the deserted tracks.
The activity now draws around 100 customers on a regular day, with that figure climbing sixfold during
vacation season. According to the transport ministry, 71 out of 96 regional railway operators — which
excludes shinkansen and other routes run by the previously state-owned Japan Railways Group —
logged current account deficits as of April last year. Nationally, 39 train lines covering 771 kilometres

shut down between 2000 and 2017. While new rail routes have been built, the total number of
stations in Japan has dipped to 9,474 in 2016 from 9,514 in 2001.
Symbolic of the struggles facing rural train lines may be the 31 March closure of the Sanko Line, West
Japan Railways Co.’s 88-year-old route linking Shimane and Hiroshima prefectures. The closure of the
108-km line marked the first time a route measuring over 100 km closed in Honshu since the split and
privatization of the Japanese National Railways in 1987. The Sanko Line’s termination appeared to
have struck a chord among locals and fans of the scenic railroad, perhaps best known for Uzui Station,
which sits on a bridge some 20 metres high and has been called the “station in the sky.” Over 3,000
people gathered to ride on the railway on its final day of operation.

[311] South Korea – Orbital railway opens in Seoul
On 16 June the Seohae Line orbital suburban railway around part of the capital Seoul was inaugurated.
The 23.4 km route runs north-south from Sosa to Wonsi to the southwest of Seoul and is mainly
underground, with a 3 km elevated section between Sinhyeon and Siheung City Hall. The 12 stations
include interchange with metro Line 1 at Sosa and Line 4 at Choji. The line is electrified at 25 kV 60 Hz
and it is envisaged that main line trains will also use the route. Extensions at both ends are planned
with a 17.8 km northern extension from Sosa to Daegok already under construction, with opening due
in 2021. A southern extension to Hongseong is planned in the longer term.

[312] United Arab Emirates – Dubai Airport People Mover
An underground people mover is provided in Dubai Airport terminal 3 (basically the Emirates terminal)
between the A zone and the B/C zone. A member took advantage of a three-hour connection
(midnight to 03:00 on morning of 12 February!!) on the way home from India to sample it. The
terminal opened in autumn 2008. Each end has a primary passenger platform and another opposite
which can be used. Platform edge doors are provided and there appear to be four sets of rubber tyred
trains, each formed into four car sets, as for example T03 MC1, T03 M3, T01 M4 and T03 MC2 (the Txx
being the set number and the last two or three digits the coach numbers). Sets 2 and 3 were in use
and our member rode in both. As usual with such vehicles there is good visibility out of the ends in the
lit tunnels and no public access between cars. Right hand running is practised and "crossover" sections
are visibly signalled with direction indicators. Set number 1 was parked in the tunnel. Two additional
"tracks" continue parallel to and beyond B/C for non-public services to other locations and set 4 was
seen passing returning from these. Lifts and escalators descend six levels from airside areas to both
public stations and so movement is freely possible. This link to Mitsubishi shows the layout plan in
Our member estimates that the route length is a little over 2km, so the figure quoted in the link may
include the sidings etc. Also, it mentions 18 vehicles so with four 4 car sets there may be two service
vehicles? No photos were taken owing to the sensitive location and the presence of women and staff.
