Ticket to Ride No. 20-1: Belgian Railways Part 1 - The North


Ticket to Ride No. 20-1: Belgian Railways Part 1 - The North

Ref: FHTTR020-1D


We explore the railways of northern Belgium from the De Panne tramway (De Lijn) at Ostend to high speed rail at Antwerp and Brussels. The traditional routes have been joined by a new high speed line that links the capital, Brussels, with Paris, London and Cologne. Amsterdam will soon be brought into this net. We see the various TGV derivatives which work this prestige service and plenty of other NMBS passenger trains as well: AM96s Class 11s,12s, 13s. The venerable Cockerill Co Cos of class 51 are not forgotten, see them on the road and at B-Cargo's state of the art depot at Antwerp Nord. Freight is everywhere! We follow the main route to Gent and up to Antwerp and on to Roosendaal with a Benelux set. Back to Antwerp, where we take a trip to the docks hauling a pair of wagons loaded with German built combine harvesters bound for South America. Haulage courtesy of one of B-Cargo's new class 77 trip locomotives. On the quay we see paper from Austria being unloaded from OBB sliding wall vans in a rather novel way! Next we visit General Motors massive OPEL works. GM kindly let us film inside their factory and we also get a close up of Astra cars being loaded for export to Switzerland. The AM96 EMUs and their "sister" i11 hauled stock have brought new standards to passenger accommodation in Belgium; we have a look at them in action - inside and out! You can't visit northern Belgium and miss Brugge! We look at the sights and see what Bombardier are about to out shop from their local works!

We continue our Belgian tour southward to: Namur, Mons for the railfest, Charleroi-steel city-, Li?ge and then down into the Ardennes, where we see some of the forest being loaded to train for export. Trains and water always photograph well together, and there is plenty of opportunity to do this in southern Belgium as the countryside is criss-crossed by waterways, both natural and man made. We conclude our assignment by looking at the smallest rail network in the EU, that of Luxemburg. It may have less route miles to its name than Antwerp docks! but it's packed with interest and still runs some of the most interesting electric locomotives that can be found outside the eastern block! Narrated.

Ticket to Ride No. 20-3: Belgian Railways Part 3 - Germany Bound

Ref: FHTTR020-3D


We explore the railways of eastern Belgium from Leuven (Louvain) and Zeebrugge across to the German border just west of Aachen. Really this is the story of two routes: the main freight to Germany via Hasselt, Visé and Montzen and the current main international passenger line via Liège. On the way we watch SNCB / NMBS at work and also follow the fortunes of B-Cargo in and around Genk. In Genk we drop in on a Scandivanian icon! IKEA who are committed rail freight users with regional distribution centres throughout continental Europe. We are privileged to tour their impressive facility, watch them unload rail vans from Sweden and Poland, and to discuss their plans for the future. Also in Genk is motor giant Ford with an impressive canal side port - see them both at work. From Genk we follow the line across the mighty Maas and watch the trains cross the river on the spectacular viaduct. We take aquick detour and visit Maastricht- a Dutch city integrated into the SNCB NMBS network. Liège is Belgium's third city and a very busy rail centre. Thalys, EuroCity, and IC trains in their coats of many colours enliven the city, and we have a close look at the route to Germany, for in a few years it will change forever!

Ticket to Ride No. 21: Belgian Railways B-Cargo Belgian Railfreight Today!

Ref: FHTTR021D


The port of Antwerp is one of THE major sources of railfreight in Europe. Mile upon mile of rail-connected quays and busy container terminals. 185 freight trains a day! We examine the plans to increase capacity: at the port, the port approaches and on the route to Germany. Spend a day with an independent freight forwarder at Boom, help Mr Voss unload a rail van of Italian made Honda mopeds and load some Pringle crisps bound for Bayern, and follow the traffic all the way to Germany via the Maas bridge at Visé. We also follow the route to Luxembourg and watch the freight flows through the stunning Ardennes. At Charleroi we film a new breed of mini container terminal and see how it fits into the European "Quality net system" Visit the quays at Antwerp and Zeebrugge, take a ride on a container train and watch the stevedores at work. At Nord yard we film in the control room and on the hump to see how NMBS / SNCB process 3500 wagons a day. This film was made with the assistance of B-Cargo and will dismiss forever any notion that Belgium is boring! An absolute must for lovers of modern railfreight.

Ticket to Ride No. 22: Out & About - Stockholm


Ticket to Ride No. 22: Out & About - Stockholm

Ref: FHTTR022D


Stockholm is the capital and the largest city in Scandinavia, and is only "bettered" by St Petersburg in the whole of the Nordic region. A cosmopolitan city that contains a wealth of interest for the rail based tourist and enthusiast. Stockholm is the centre of the Swedish Railways (SJ) InterCity network worked by the fast and stylish X2000 tilting trains from ABB. Secondary InterCity trains and "Regionals" are worked by "ASEA" electric units that, some would say, pioneered modern power electronics for traction. You will also see "green freight" moved by these machines on its way to Finland. We even pop across the Baltic to Turku to see how the "Jiptrans" wagons have their bogies changed for onward movement over the broad gauge in Finland! Back in Stockholm we travel the "T-Bahn", the new light rail super tram- run by UK firm Connex and the Heritage tourist tram. Practical information is given, boat trips, places to visit, to eat and stay and so on. Naturally we also give some thoughts on coming and going- this gives us the excuse to try out the Arlanda Express between the airport and Stockholm Central!

Ticket to Ride No. 29-1: Rhine Cabride+ Koblenz to Cologne


Ticket to Ride No. 29-1: Rhine Cabride+ Koblenz to Cologne

Ref: FH144D


Koblenz to Cologne Cabride+ IC 614 starts her run north from Munich every day at the unearthly hour of 05.23. She will run to Stuttgart via Augsburg and Ulm. For the time being she will have to reverse at Stuttgart, Land Hauptstadt of Baden-Württemberg, and then take the NBS to Mannheim. Her next call is the university city of Heidelburg, where she pauses briefly before swinging west to avoid Frankfurt. She calls at Mainz and would normally take the left bank IC line towards Koblenz. But today, because of engineering work on the line she is diverted across the Rhine to pick up the right bank line via Rüdesheim where we pick up the action watching IC trains scuttle along the promanade of this tiny Rhine-side town. The main line is regained at Koblenz, we have a look at this great rail centre, and join the driver on the footplate for the run to Bonn and Cologne. It’s a busy route and we pass ICs, ECs, ICEs and freight-more freight in fact than you would expect! At Bonn we have a quick look around, and even cross to Bonn Beuel, before continuing north past the massive new container terminal, before weaving slowly into the massive Cologne Hbf. This is more than just a cabride, it’s a mini documentary that really gives you the flavour of the route! Enjoy it now! This will be the last summer of ceaseless activity, for as of winter 2002 most fast trains will be taken over by ICE3 sets, and will run along the Rhein Main NBS, a faster but less scenic journey.. Filmed from: lineside, boat, and train - narrated by Phyllis Watts.

Ticket to Ride No.35-1: Shortlines Class 66 Cabride+ Venlo to Utrecht


Ticket to Ride No.35-1: Shortlines Class 66 Cabride+ Venlo to Utrecht

Ref: FH043D


Railfreight in the Netherlands is changing and changing fast! New operators now compete with the national incumbent Railion. The first open access company to run revenue earning freight was the Rotterdam based SHORT LINES and with TTR35-1 you have the opportunity to join it for a day's work hauling the oil tanker empties back from Switzerland. For maximum flexibility SHORT LINES has leased two General Motors : Class 66 locomotives from Portabrook hence the locos are simply known as PB's! Our journey starts on the Dutch border at Venlo when the HGK MAK locomotive hands over the train to its partner and the 66 can get underway. Without station calls to interrupt our progress it's amazing how quickly we cover the ground. Utrecht is reached in 90 minutes, not much more than would be required by an IC! Along the way we have time to discuss the direction railfreight is taking in Holland, and of course point out the places of interest we pass. In addition to the narration by Phyllis Watts your SHORT LINES driver, Chris Westerduin, chats away happily in English to your cameraman to give another angle on the run. Filmed in glorious spring 2003 weather part two takes us through the National Railway Museum, the Amsterdam suburbs, Amsterdam CS and then down to the docks.

Ticket to Ride No.35-2: Class 66 Cabride+ Utrecht to Amsterdam

Ref: FH044D


Our SHORT LINES journey to the harbour at Amsterdam continues! At Utrecht we take the freight only road around the east of the city past the National Railway Museum before regaining the main line towards Hilversum. North of Hilversum we are in the Amsterdam commuter area, and the 66 has to pick its way carefully through the traffic as we pass through the centre of Holland's largest city. Near the Central Station we pass a couple of ICEs inbound from and outbound to Frankfurt, before we pause to pick up our shunter who will help us when we get down to the docks. West of CS work is in full swing on the modernisation of the approaches, it won't be that long before this is part of the High Speed Line to Brussels and Paris and - perhaps- to the UK! Down at the docks Railion are preparing to depart with a massive coal train for the Ruhr, but we still have a little way go, as we must reverse through the harbour complex to reach the petroleum quays. We seem to have attracted the attention of Dutch enthusiasts as we are greeted by a positive gang of photographers. Our driver Chris Westerduin rewards them by pausing for a photocall in front of nice bed of daffodils thoughtfully planted by the port authority!

Ticket to Ride No.36: Railfreight Holland Part 1

Ref: FHTTR036


Railfreight in the Netherlands is changing- and changing fast! But the importance of the network of rail connected ports remains pivotal to the success of this and indeed all transport modes. We tour the major ports starting at Terneuzen - an enclave of RAILION which is linked with the NMBS I SNCB network rather than the NS - then, on to the sister port of Vlissingen to watch the new Ford traffic arriving from Germany and Genk. Before we get to the big one - Rotterdam - we spend some time at the Netherland's largest marshalling yard at Kijfhoek. We watch wagons going over the hump, visit the control room, and watch wagons being chased into their allocated slots by teams of mechanical mules! We follow a local trip working across the Maas to Vlaardingen to see a delivery of raw materials for the food industry, and a local oil delivery being undertaken. Rotterdam is Europe's largest container port and is served by two terminals: the Rail Service Centre which serves the older Waalhaven, while Europort Delta serves the Maasvlakte quays- where the true giants of the ocean berth. We visit both terminals; exploring both shipside and railside. We also explore the port line and its railfreight customers, and look at the modernisation that is currently underway as part of the Betuweroute programme. This film has been made with the extensive and active co-operation of RAILION, NS infrastructure, SHORTLINES, ACTS, European Rail Shuffle (ERS), Europe Container Terminals (ECT), the Port of Rotterdam, the RSC Rotterdam and many others. Part two of this series continues with the Maasvlakte iron ore terminal before heading towards Germany to watch the port shuffles and see the Bentheimer Eisenbahn at work. The programme is comprehensively narrated with animation sequences courtesy of Transpoint.

Ticket to Ride No. 37: Montzen Line 1997 to 2003


Ticket to Ride No. 37: Montzen Line 1997 to 2003

Ref: FHTTR037D


Antwerp is Europe's third largest port but the most important for railfreight. As important in fact for the German economy as for that of Belgium. Line 34 was actually built by the Germans to give easy access to the north sea! Now it's as busy as ever and we chart the route from Antwerp to Aachen. At Antwerp we spend some time looking at the freight which travels the line; bananas from the National Fruit Quay bound for Germany, paper inbound from Austria, then see how B-Cargo process it and dispatch it through the busy section from Nord to Berchem. We follow the mixed use railway through Aarschot and Diest to Hasselt and then to Glons where line 34 becomes line 24! Impressive civil engineering follows: across the Albert canal and the Meuse at Visé. Before you know it you're at Montzen yard and we start the run over the non-electrified section to the German border. Along this section you will find a huge variety of diesel traction both from the SNCB NMBS and from the DB. The Montzen viaduct is spectacular - the second longest in Belgium - and we watch trains spanning the years as well as the valley! The Gemmenicher tunnel is quite plain on the Belgian side but highly decorated on the German portal! Watch the heavy freights being banked up the incline in a variety of combinations! Then it's Aachen and we view all the action from 212s to the latest traction from the SBB, Rail4Chem and DB Cargo. Filmed by Tim Martin and Peter Van Gestel, digitally edited in the UK by FHP Audio Visual- the producers of B-Cargo Belgian Railfreight Today!

Ticket to Ride No.38: Rivage to Gouvy Line 1997 to 2002

Ref: FHTTR038D


Belgium's most scenic railway? Well we think so! This film charts the line from north to south beginning at Liège and ending not in Belgium at all but in Luxembourg. It is the line's raison d'etre to link the capital of French speaking Belgium with the Grand Duchy. The film charts the line both historically - most of the footage was taken during the late 1990s when the line was non electrified - as well as geographically. Rivage is the starting point for line 42 and we view the former motive power shop before hitching up to a heavy mineral train for the journey south through the limestone gorge cut by the beautiful river Amblève. We criss cross the river as we head for Aywaille, in time for the Saturday morning market, Stoumont and Trois - Ponts where the remains of the former line to Spa via Stavelot can be seen, as well as the twisty tourist line the Vennbahn. We head further south in close company with the N68 to Vielsalm, a crossing point on this mostly single track route and where much of the Ardennes timber is loaded to rail. We journey through time here to see the railway under the wire and see how a modern B-Cargo loads the timber. Luxembourg is entered just south of Gouvy but we continue south for a quick look at the capital of the Grand Duchy. Also included: a steam day out with an ex PKP Kriegs Loc and a look at the electric railway being built on top of the classic line.

Ticket to Ride No. 39: Out & About Helsinki

Ref: FHTTR039D


The capital city of Finland has an appeal quite different from its Scandinavian neighbours. There is plenty to see and do, and Ticket to Ride.. helps you sort out some of the best, and of course, gets you using the city's superb public transport system to make the most of your time and your euros. Once we get down town from Vantaa airport we look over some of the city's hotels, where you get good access to the surprisingly dense tram system. We use the trams to see the sights, but for those more distant attractions we take to the train. The centre of the VR passenger network is the magnificent neo-classical Central station. We have a good look around, admire the new roof built to mark the city's year as capital of European culture and see how connections with the metro are made. We make a day trip to the city of Turku, the ancient capital of Finland, stopping off at KarjalKaris and diverting to Hanko on the way. This gives us the opportunity to see VR at work: Pendolinos, the Soviet SRi and state of the art SR2 - broad gauge Lok 2000s - plus double deck IC cars and the latest in suburban rail travel from Fiat. We also make an excursion across 40 miles of the Baltic to the Estonian capital Tallinn by ferry, with a return onboard a high tech catamaran. Extras include a ferry hopping tour of the Turku archipelago, a boat trip to the fortress at Suomenlinna and a visit to the Helsinki tram museum. For rail fans, there is a visit to Kouvola where we watch VR Cargo switching European and Russian wagons near the ports of Kotka and Hamina.
