Concerns have recently resurfaced about the Zafra to Huelva service, so one member made the effort to do the line in case services
terminated at short notice There was some poor quality track, particularly on the flat section in from Gibraleon. Five passengers joined the
train at Zafra, and ten alighted at Huelva Termino, where our member took this picture.

EUROPE

[093] Austria – Graz tram network to be expanded
Graz city council and tram operator Graz Linien have announced plans to expand the Linz tram
network in a six project programme. The most important of these is a 1.8km extension from Alte
Poststrasse to Reininghaus in the south west of the city, which includes four new stops. Construction
should start in 2019 and the extension is expected to open in 2021.
In the city centre, a 1km line will be built from Jakominiplatz to Annenstraße via Neutorgasse and
Belgiergasse to relieve the section along Herrengasse section. This stretch is currently used by all of
the city’s tram lines and is considered a bottleneck. Work will begin on the project in 2021 and trams
are due to start using the new connection in 2023.
To the west of the main station, lines 3 and 6 will be extended 1.1km north from Asperngasse to Peter-
Tunnergasse. Construction will begin in 2020 and the extension will open in 2021.
Finally, three single-track sections on lines 1 and 5 will be doubled. These are Zentralfriedhof -
Puntigam (Line 5), Hilmteich - Mariagrün (Line 1), and Mariagrün - Mariatrost (Line 1).

[094] Denmark – New bridge over the Storstrøm
South of Vordingborg the bridge over the Storstrøm has been connecting the islands of Falster and
Zealand for 80 years as part of the København to Rødby Færge line. There has now been a call for
tenders for construction of a new road/rail bridge 4 km long and 100 metres high with a construction
start date of autumn 2018. Rail traffic should start in 2023.

[095] France - Chemin de Fer Touristique du Tarn
This 500mm gauge light railway near Saint-Sulpice in the department of Tarn runs from 3.5km from
Saint Lieux-lès-Lavaur to Les Martels. The line is currently closed while ‘administrative authorizations’
are obtained from the Préfecture du Tarn, but ACOVA (Association pour la Conservation Occitane de
Véhicules Anciens) who own and operate the line hope that trains will run again in April 2018. It is
planned to extend the line to reach the hamlet and chapel of Saint-Cyriaque.

[096] France - Lamballe to Dol line survives
Funding has been agreed for the renovation of the Lamballe-Dinan-Dol-de-Bretagne line, although it
will not be completed until 2025.

[097] France – Bicycle path or railway to major pilgrimage site? The bikes win.
The railway from Rosheim to Ottrott and Saint Nabor is the last private railway in Alsace. Opened in
1902 the line is owned by the Département Bas-Rhin, but was last operated by the Compagnie des
Transports Strasbourgeois (CTS). Passenger traffic ended on 1 April 1954, but museum trains ("S'Bimel-
Bähnel") operated between 1969 and 1988. The bankruptcy of the quarrying company of Saint-Nabor
led to complete closure in 2002 and demolition of the station buildings, while the former engine shed
in Ottrott was converted for residential purposes. The tracks are still largely present, but no longer
passable, although volunteers cleared the Bœrsch - Saint-Léonard section in spring 2017. In recent
years two options have emerged; either to rehabilitate the track to create a rail link to the 763 metre
high Mont Sainte-Odile (with its monastery the most important place of pilgrimage in Alsace) or to

dismantle the tracks to create a bicycle path. Despite resistance from the Mayors of Ottrott and Saint-
Nabor the Rosheim Council announced in February 2017 that the bicycle path option would be
adopted, work starting in summer 2019 and completed by July 2019.
[098] France – Laon to Paris Est service to terminate in Northern Paris?
Several weeks ago, the president of the agglomeration of Soissonnais received a letter from the
regional prefect in which he mentioned a possible change of terminus for TER services between Laon
and Paris. Rather than terminating at Paris Gare de Est they may now be routed to Le Bourget or
Pleyel-Saint-Denis, both of interest to track bashers as they would involve use of what are currently
freight only lines.
The reason appears to be capacity constraints into Paris Est caused by the proposed Charles de Gaulle
Express, so the 6000 people per day who use the Laon-Paris Est service would connect into this service
instead. Whether this is a good thing or not remains to be seen – Laon to Paris has long been
considered a ‘sick’ line whose long-term future raises questions.
The CDG Express is a 32km high-speed rail service (including 8 km of new track) which is expected to
connect Paris Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport and Gare de l'Est as early as 2023.

[099] Germany – IC2 network being expanded
Intercity 2 (IC2) services are 5-car trainsets consisting of a TRAXX locomotive and Twindexx Vario
double-deck intercity carriages. They are currently in operation providing two hourly services over
three routes (Leipzig via Hannover to Norddeich, Dresden via Hannover to Koln and Stuttgart to
Singen) and more have now been ordered to expand the network. To quote from the DB literature –
“Our goal is to better connect rural areas with the long-distance transport network by 2030. In the
coming years, we want to connect almost all cities with more than 100,000 inhabitants to the rail
network. Numerous smaller cities with 50,000 to 100,000 inhabitants will also benefit from new and
better transport links. Overall, we are planning 190 new direct connections between smaller cities and

major cities.” The map (e-BLNI only) shows the planned network in 2021, with more routes joining the
IC2 network.

Blue dotted line: Hourly Stuttgart to Zurich. Red dotted line: Two hourly Koln to Norddeich via
Münster. Light blue dotted line: Occasional trains from Dusseldorf to Gera or Halle an der Saale or
Leipzig. Black dotted line: Two hourly Karlsruhe to Nurnberg via Stuttgart. Purple dotted line: Two
hourly from Frankfurt am Main to Münster. Green dotted line: Hourly from Dresden to Rostock via
Berlin.
[100] Italy - The Milano Cabinas
There were as many as seven signalboxes at Milano Centrale, but since 1984 the entire station area
has been controlled from a single box on the west side of the throat. Two of the previous boxes
remain, Cabina A and Cabina C. Both are massive over-line structures, spanning several tracks. Built of
concrete, they are quite ornate. The upper floor is wider than the lower one, being cantilevered over
adjacent tracks. Cabina A has large, roof-mounted clocks. Work has recently been completed on
renovation of Cabina C. The structure was entirely covered in scaffolding, blocking the tracks below it,
while work was under way. The building appears to be vacant, but given its position above and
surrounded by railway tracks and electrification equipment, it would be challenging to find a new use
for it. Cabina A remains in poor condition. Due to its location, closer to the station, blocking the tracks
below it would probably be much more disruptive than was the case with Cabina C.

[101] Italy – Páola to Cosenza
[BLNI 1299.079] It seems the line is unlikely to reopen anytime soon, because of judicial procedures. A
local councillor is organising a demonstration against the continued closure of the line and calling for
Calabria Region to make a claim against TrenItalia for breach of its contract to provide local train
services.

[102] Italy – Trieste to Villa Opicina tram
The latest L'Echo du Rail reports that a renovation programme was published on 14 November 2017
which envisages a reduced service (with two cars) from spring this year, then "works" on track,
pointwork, overhead etc to be undertaken by 2021.

[103] Italy – Problems on the Ferrovia del Gargano
Today's Railways reports trains being replaced by buses between Cagnano Varano and Peschici
Calenella from 2 December due to unmodernised level crossings. That is about a third of the
line. Given the extremely slow street-side running along the coastal section and the number of level
crossings, a member who has travelled the line considers the chances of the line re-opening soon (if at
all) to be slim.

[104] Romania – Closures and service cuts
From 1 March 2018 the following lines lost their services: Şibot to Cugir, Simeria to Hunedoara and
Alexandria Nord to Zimnicea. It also appears that Timișoara Nord to Radna via Giarmata has lost its
service between Giarmata and Radna. Pitești to Curtea de Argeş has had a reprieve and retains the
current service. Târgoviște to Pietroșița and Pașcani to Târgu Neamț have service reductions and must
be considered threatened.

[105] Serbia / Bulgaria – Cross-border line modernisation agreement signed
An agreement to co-finance modernisation of the 104 km line from Niš to Dimitrovgrad near the
Bulgarian border was signed by the European Investment Bank, the Serbian Ministry of Construction,
Transport & Infrastructure and railway infrastructure manager Infra ŽS on 31 January 2018. Upgrading
of the single track non-electrified line is expected to cost a total of €268m. EIB is to provide a grant
worth €44.7m for work on the Sićevo – Dimitrovgrad section of the route, and a €28.3m grant for
electrification and resignalling of the Niš northern bypass.

[106] Slovakia - New line to Nitra proposed
The Ministry of Transport and infrastructure manager ŽSR are studying the feasibility of building a 19.6
km link between Horné Krškany and Trnovec nad Váhom, which would considerably reduce the
distance from Nitra to Bratislava by eliminating the need to travel on the lengthy route via Palárikovo.
There have been year-on-year increases in rail travel between the capital and the country’s fifth-
largest city, where a Jaguar Land Rover car factory is under construction, and the new line would
reduce the journey time by 40 min to under 1 hour. A feasibility study is being prepared for a single or
double track line suitable for 160 km/h running. The estimated cost is €140m, and if it proves viable,
construction could start in 2023.

[107] Spain - Madrid’s Atocha railway station is about to lose its famous turtles
Madrid Atocha station has a tropical garden in the old train shed which is a delightful airy structure
close to the AVE platforms. The parakeets are surprising all by themselves, but in a swamp among the
Malabar chestnut trees is a pond with over 300 terrapins which has become a minor tourist draw in its
own right. Unfortunately there are too many terrapins, which has created sanitation and overcrowding
problems as well as cannibalism. There have been many complaints and Infrastructure Operator ADIF
has now announced an agreement to transfer the reptiles to a new home at the Fauna y Naturaleza
'José Peña' wildlife park in Navas del Rey. The ponds will be drained and concreted over, thereby
ending a rather unusual chapter in the life of the station.
[108] Spain - Variante de Vandellòs to open soon?
The Variante de Vandellòs will provide a high speed bypass to the congested single track section of the
Mediterranean Corridor between Tarragona and Vandellòs, which is about 40 km to the south west.

Courtesy of Europeanrailwayatlas.com
The Variante has been under construction for about nine years and has been plagued by the delays
and changes of policy which seem endemic in Spain. This has included even the question of which
gauge will be used. They seem to have ended up with a compromise - both gauges but not dual gauge!
The section south from the triangular junction with the Madrid - Barcelona LAV is UIC gauge as far as a
gauge changer somewhere NW of Tarragona. From there westwards is Iberian gauge which will be
allegedly converted to UIC gauge in 2020. The announcement is rather unclear but the member who
has sweated his way through the translation interprets a statement that it will be electrified at 25 kV
and 3000 V as not meaning there will be switchable overheads. He presumes therefore that it will be

25 kV north of the gauge changer and 3 kV west thereof. There will be two curves where the Variante
intersects the Tarragona - Reus (- Zaragoza) line at Vila-Seca, both leading towards Tarragona.
The line was due to have been energised on 20 November 2017 and test runs to have started soon
after. It has been suggested that it might open to commercial traffic in April. This may well be the cue
for significant re-routings as our member considers that all freight and express services to/from
València will transfer to the Variante, using the south curve at Vila-Seca. Satellite photos (allegedly
dated 2018) show work on the east curve at Vila-Seca as much less advanced. Regarding which trains
might use this curve, only the Alvia services between Tarragona and Barcelona, and perhaps Zaragoza
or Madrid seem likely. RENFE will be keen to get Euromed trains off the Iberian gauge lines in the
Barcelona area in order to free up capacity. One question doubtless worrying the good people of
Tarragona is whether all fast services will use the isolated Camp Tarragona LAV station rather than
their much better sited city centre station.

REST OF THE WORLD
[109] China - Suburban services introduced to Beijing
Beijing Suburban Railway Co inaugurated two services on 31 December 2017 linking the capital with its
outer suburbs. The Sub Central Line links Beijing Xi with the sub-administrative centre of Tongzhou to
the east of the city. Services run from Beijing Xi to Beijing main station through the 9.2 km cross-city
tunnel which opened in 2015, before using a section of the Beijing – Harbin main line. Services call at
four stations on the 29.6 km route, offering an end-to-end journey time of 42 min. A 9.2 km western

extension from Beijing Xi to Yamenkou is planned. This would add one station and offer an 18 min
journey time from Beijing Xi to Yamenkou.
Services on the Huairou–Miyun Line also started on 31 December. This 80.9 km route links
Huangtudian to Huairoubei, using the tracks of the Beijing – Baotou Jingbao line from Huangtudian to
Changping, and part of the Beijing – Tongliao route from there to Huairoubei. In the future services
would be extended northeast from Huairoubei to Gubeikou, which would add 56.7 km and two
stations.

[110] Congo – Tourist train announced on the Kisangani-Ubundu railway line
A tourist train will soon be launched by the Société Nationale des Chemins de fer du Congo (SNCC) on
the 125 km long Kisangani-Ubundu railway, though the announcement seems to suggest that tourist
carriages will be added to the present mail train that connects the province of Tshopo to that of
Maniema through Ubundu, crossing the equator en-route, this being perceived as a major tourist
attraction.

[111] India - Tales from the sub-continent
Since taking over as the Union railways minister in September, Piyush Goyal has made a number of
innovative decisions – he got the army to help re-build the bridge at Mumbai’s Elphinstone Road
railway station (this collapsed killing many people). This way, he reckoned, there would be no need to
go through the tedious, tendering route of his ministry. Then he proposed that the iconic
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) (still commonly known as Victoria Terminus or VT) – the
headquarters of the Central Railway – be turned into a museum.
The grand, Gothic structure has been used as an office for over a century and Goyal’s plan is to make a
more modern building for the staff and officers. Staff based at the station are protesting.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, formerly the Victoria Terminus

Around 1,500 farmers, who were headed for Kota, go stuck at an unfamiliar Madhya Pradesh railway
station after their train travelled 160 kilometres in the wrong direction. The farmers were returning to
Rajasthan and Maharashtra after attending the Kisan Yatra protest rally in Delhi’s Jantar Mantar. The
special train that was arranged from Maharashtra for the thousands of protesting farmers took a
wrong route and left them stranded in Madhya Pradesh’s Banmore station near Gwalior. Apparently
the railway authorities had no idea what to do with them.

After a 155 year run, a train meant exclusively for rail employees and popularly known as the ‘coolie
train’, came to its final and permanent halt in November 2017. Started by the British in 1862, the
historic train has for more than one-and-a-half centuries ferried workers from Dhanauri and Sultangunj
to the Jamalpur engine factory in Munger district. Sources in the railways said that with expenses
exceeding revenue by 40:1, there were no options left but to end the service.
