Ticket to Ride No.182: PKP InterCity Cabride+ Ciechanw to Warsaw


Ticket to Ride No.182: PKP InterCity Cabride+ Ciechanów to Warsaw

Ref: FHTTR182D


Today we are travelling with PKP InterCity from Gdansk on the Baltic coast to the capital Warsaw in the interior. Our train is TLK 53106 which started from Gdynia at 06.19. The time is now 11.49 and we are about to depart from Ciechanów station on the final leg of our journey to Warsaw. While the middle of the three chapters covering this run was largely rural, this chapter takes us through an urban and industrial landscape. This section is a modernised railway busy with long distance commuter traffic that extends 90km from the capital. Our first call in Warsaw is Warszawa Wschodnia that lies east of the Vistula, the river that divides the city. Here we change our locomotive to an EP09 for the last 5km to Central Station. It’s not as crazy as it sounds -the train will continue south and needs a 160kph locomotive. Filmed in HD. Narrated.

Through the suburbs we pass commuter train after commuter train including the new FLIRTS, Swiss built but modified for Finnish winters. This is the line to Tampere and Oulu in the far north, one of only two continuous double track lines in Finland. With a small population but huge quantities of timber and minerals VR is a predominantly freight railway. The weather is fine and sunny. Narrated and filmed in High Definition.

Ticket to Ride No.187: VR IC Cabride+ Hameenlinna to Tampere and Parkano


Ticket to Ride No.187: VR IC Cabride+ Hameenlinna to Tampere and Parkano

Ref: FHTTR187D


Today we undertake a journey with VR IC 47 it’s Monday 3rd June 2013, we are at Hämeenlinna. The time is 11.11 and we are ready to depart on our journey to Tampere and Parkano. This is the mainline to Tampere and onward to Oulu, double track as far as the junction for Pori- the port on the Gulf of Bothnia and Finland’s most important export facility for paper products. We pass Tampere marshalling yard where wagons are classified: north Oulu and Pori or east towards Russia. Tampere has a population of nearly 220,000 making it the largest non-coastal city in the Nordic area. It’s located between two lakes, Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi. Since the two lakes differ in level by 18 metres, the rapids linking them have been an important power source throughout the city’s history, most recently for generating electricity. Tampere is dubbed the "Manchester of Finland" for its industrial past as the former centre of Finnish industry. We continue north past the Tampere pleasure park famous for the highest tower in the Nordic Region and then run to Parkano on the mainline to Oulu. The run is made in fine spring weather. Narrated, Filmed in HD.
