Ticket to Ride No.43: ACTS Cabride plus


Ticket to Ride No.43: ACTS Cabride plus "The American" (100-mins)

Ref: FHTTR043D


Railfreight in the Netherlands is changing, and changing fast! New operators now compete with the national incumbent Railion. When the state owned company wished to divest itself of internal - that's within the Netherlands - container transport, Vos Logistics rose to the challenge and ACTS was formed to take over the business. The locomotives used on this Leeuwarden shuttle are not exactly in the first flushes of youth, being purchased second hand from the NS. The class 1200 are American in design, and it shows, and require an unusual driving style, you will see your driver (an NS instructor) demonstrate this. The run to the marshalling yard south of Rotterdam could hardly be called direct! First, we head north to Amsterdam, then around the city rail ring before heading south once more. All this to avoid congested Utrecht! The run varies from open countryside to intensely urban Rotterdam, and includes some great views of part of the quadrupling work currently underway. Part two of this run will take the port line to Europe's busiest container terminal.

Ticket to Ride No.44: ACTS & ERS Cabride+ The Port Line - Europort to RSC Rotterdam


Ticket to Ride No.44: ACTS & ERS Cabride+ The Port Line - Europort to RSC Rotterdam

Ref: FHTTR044D


GM Class 66 ERS out, Belgian Class 62 back! The Rail Service Centre at Rotterdam lies just to the west of Kijfhoek marshalling yard - the largest in the Netherlands. The RSC is integrated into the eastern dock complex, it's where containers from barges and smaller ships are landed. Container trains from a huge variety of rail operators call here on their way to or from Europe\'s largest container loading facility: Maasvlakte Delta terminal. Inbound from Europe- containers are unloaded, outward bound to the mainland- containers are picked up. Turn round is tight! We start our run at Delta and follow the Port Line to the RSC with a GM 66. We pass heavy ore trains inbound from Germany, Railion container trains, wagonload freight, unit chemical trains and much more! It's an industrial landscape with its own particular beauty; busy with trip freights heading for Kijfhoek. The line is undergoing modernisation as part of the Betuwe route development. Electrification masts are in situ in places, and a double track tunnel is being built to avoid a single track lifting bridge, a shame in a way as it's a spectacular crossing - we take it, and watch other trains do the same. We queue up to enter the RSC - like London Heathrow with trains rather than planes! When we get a slot, we ease in and loading starts almost before we grind to a halt! Time for a quick look around, then back to Delta with ACTS Class 62 Belgian diesel. Next week she returns home, but she gives us a different perspective of the Port Line before she goes! This not JUST a Cabride- there is much more - none of it would have been possible without the help of ECT Maasvlakte, Short Lines, the RSC Rotterdam and ACTS.

Ticket to Ride No. 46: Railfreight Holland 2 (100-mins)

Ref: FHTTR046D


The second in this professional series starts at the Amazon Quay at Rotterdam Maasvlakte where Brazilian iron ore is unloaded by mighty cranes, and then loaded to barge or train to journey into Belgium or Germany. We then follow the main routes to Germany observing the entry points at Venlo and Arnhem before visiting Born to collect some air miles with the ShortLines container shuttle driver! Not far away there are DSM wagonload chemicals and the old DAF plant now owned by Mitsubishi. We look at the coastal CORUS plant and the port of Amsterdam which shifts large quantities of coal to the Ruhr, and then head north to see the ACTS shuttles at work at Onnen and Leeuwarden. East this time to Delfzijl to see the chlorine trains, and other activity at the Nobel Chemie Park and waste trains to Germany. Finally to Coevorden where RAILION, ACTS and the Bentheimer Eisenbahn come together to feed Europe’s pets! All this, plus the Betuweroute to Germany and the competing Iron Rhine make TTR46 compulsive viewing for rail fan or transport professional.

Ticket to Ride No. 47: Out & About Bratislava


Ticket to Ride No. 47: Out & About Bratislava

Ref: FHTTR047D


Just 40 miles from Vienna, but until May 2004 it seemed much further! Now it’s a great day trip from the Austrian capital, or a base for a few days to see this beautiful country by train. First things first, let’s get there - a bewildering choice is offered- including flying in direct and the Danube hydrofoil- but we enter and exit by rail. The back door to the north of Bratislava and the EC route to the south. Petrzalka station is modern and efficient and a great place to watch the international trains - freight and passenger. It’s easy to get to nowadays as Bratislava is now an EU City, and there is an almost hourly OBB service to the Vienna Südbahnhof. To reach the old town and the meat of the city you have to cross the Danube. On the way you get some great views of the famous castle. We visit this, plus the other “ must do” sights and at the same time learn how to use the extensive tram and trolley system: great fun - quick and cheap but avoid the rush hour! If you arrive from the north, and want to travel further into Slovakia, as we did, making a day trip to the lovely town of Trnava, or just want to watch trains then you will need to use Bratislava hl station. Don’t try and walk- use one the frequent trams! hl is just how you would imagine a pre glasnost eastern block main rail station to be! But the ponderous activity makes for great train and people watching! Next door is the Slovakian National Rail Museum and we pay it a visit. A very nice collection awaits your attention; both rail vehicles and equipment together with one of the best gatherings of eastern European classic and vintage cars: TATRA, Wartburg and Skoda of course! Strictly for rail fans; we have a section for you on Slovakian railfreight.

Ticket to Ride No.48: Out & About Vienna


Ticket to Ride No.48: Out & About Vienna

Ref: FHTTR048D


The great meeting point between east and west.

Austria's capital on the Danube evokes visions of splendid architecture, grand castles, the opera house and more! But to see it you'II have to get on terms with Vienna's public transport system. It's layers deep The plane feeds into the train-- the CAT in this case- - that feeds the S-Bahn that feeds the metro that feeds the tram that.....Don't worry, all will be revealed, - it's not that difficult to master and anyway it's great fun! Vienna is a major city on the Grand Tour along with Budapest and Prague - so many arrivals will be by rail. We follow the exotic assembly of EuroCity trains in from East and West, get you used to the two main stations the Südbahnhof and the Westbahnhof. The Vorortelinie, - an old military inspired railway - is now part of the S Bahn net, we follow it as it snakes across the city and admire the transport architecture of visionary Otto Wagner. We will use our Vienna card to visit the sights - including the twin icons- the cathedral and the giant ferris wheel immortalised by Harry Lime! - using the wonderful Viennese tram system and new metro. Then we make a few trips out of the city - by train or tram of course: The Liliput Bahn, Grinzing for the wine of Wien, Prater Park- - gardens and fun fair, Schönbrunn - the magnificent palace and the Schneebergbahn for a steam train ride up a mountain. We will show you hotels, where to drink coffee and eat dark chocolate cake, buy tickets and icecream! By the time you've watched the film you will think that you've been there and your actual visit when you make it - will be a breeze!

Ticket to Ride No.49: Railways of the Netherlands part 3 The North


Ticket to Ride No.49: Railways of the Netherlands part 3 The North

Ref: FHTTR049D


Our rail journey through the Netherlands continues. We leave the Randstad at Utrecht and head east: Amersfoort to admire modern Dutch railway architecture and see Koplopers at work, and Baarn- the forgotten freight route. Onward to Arnhem, though not technically a border station in practice the major northern gateway to Germany - the route of the ICEs and fast and heavy freight to the Ruhr. We travel beyond the border to Emmerich and to Duisberg and discuss the prospects for a higher speed connection between the two countries. Heading north we track the route from Amsterdam through Apeldoorn, Deventer and Hengelo to the border stations at Enschede and Bad Bentheim. Still further north through Emmen and Coevorden to see the pet food plant. At Nieuweschans we travel the recently modernised route to Leer. We visit the regional capital Groningen before heading back west via Leeuwarden and then south to Zwolle and Lelystad and see the plan for a new route north. We conclude with a trip around Veenpark hauled by a Feldbahn diesel.

Ticket to Ride No. 50: The Railways of Austria Part 1 - The East


Ticket to Ride No. 50: The Railways of Austria Part 1 - The East

Ref: FHTTR050D


Austria has long been the buffer between east and west, but with enlargement of the EU has become an eastern crossroad for the new Europe. We concentrate on Lower Austria: the Südbahn, the Ostbahn and the Westbahn - all coming together in Vienna and its three main stations. We look at EuroCity activity to Hungary and the Czech Republic plus - what is now almost a domestic service to Slovakia. We discuss the prospects of a new central station for Vienna and then follow the NEW Westbahn to Linz, see the recently rebuilt station and climb the hills above the city with the delightful Pöstlingbergbahn. Onwards to the Czech border near Summerau to see some unusual international workings and at nearby Gmünd narrow gauge steam. The freight business is surprisingly deregulated. The old and the new order aggregate more than 200 trains a day between Linz and St. Pölten. We visit Kledering - the largest and most technically advanced wagonload facility in the east of Europe - you get the grand tour from the tower and the hump and watch wagons from all over Europe pass through this vast railway melting pot. Europe's most advanced traction is on display, from the high tech multi current machines from Siemens and Bombardier, like the pretty Taurus, and new diesels from Vossloh - not forgetting the OBB's mighty Hercules. All this, plus the Mariazellerbahn and a lesson on Austrian signalling!

Ticket to Ride No. 51: Out & About Nürnberg

Ref: FHTTR051D


We arrive in Bavaria by rail from the north. Our first stop is Würzburg- a Bavarian city of great character. We explore the city and nearby "romantic" Rothenburg before heading for Nürnberg. Totally rebuilt with much care after WW2 Nürnberg is a busy city on the Main Donau canal with much to offer the rail-based tourist. It's a major cross road on the DB InterCity network, with a new high speed rail link to the south under construction. Getting around is easy once you have mastered the tram, S Bahn and metro. We visit the sights and make special calls at the National Rail Museum, the Toy Museum and the Zoo (by tram of course) and ride the Adler! For some day trip ideas we visit: beautiful Bamburg, Bayreuth and Lichtenfels, the basket making town. Then we travel to visit Audi at Ingolstadt and on to the international toy fair where Rolf Fleischmann, grandson of the founder, introduces us to his company and the Stadt Schwabach museum- home of the Fleischmann collection.

Ticket to Ride No.54: NSB (Norway) Cabride+ Part 1: Oslo to Honefoss (DVD+R)

Ref: FHTTR054D


We undertake one of the world's great railway journeys: the 500 km from Norway's capital Oslo to its second city Bergen. The first section takes us through busy suburban Oslo to Asker then through the Lieråsen tunnel to the port town of Drammen. There's new infrastructure ready to be brought into use around Lysaker as the NSB has plans to double the capacity of the route with a highspeed line coming on stream.

Drammen is Norway's premier car import terminal and we pass the distinctive wagons before crossing the dramatic Drammenfjord. We pass many commuter trains en route including the new Lok2000s from Breda in Italy (like our own head end power), and NSB’s latest Agenda units. From Drammen we head north alongside the Drammenselva and pass Green Cargo Rcs hauling a heavy paper train near Vikersund. The run to the end of the first section of our run at Hønefoss is along side the Tyrifjorden - beautiful!

Part two of our 500 km run from Norway's capital Oslo to its second city Bergen run is along the last part of the Bergensbanen to be completed. The railway was built from west to east and the original terminus was at Gulsvik on Lake Krøderen. There were waterway connections down the lake to the town of Krøderen, and then a railway to Vikersund and Drammen. It's a run along the lake gently gaining height: 207 metres by Gol, 437 metres by Ål. While there is little snow on the line over this part of the run, there is plenty on the mountains around us - a sign of things to come! The programme is narrated, but there is also some wonderful informative chit-chat with the crew, who tell us what it's like to drive the Bergensbanen in winter, and what to look out for along the way. Ål marks the halfway point of our journey and this is where the Bergen men take over.

The third section of our 500km run from Oslo to Bergen starts at Ål, 437 metres absl. This is where the Bergensbanen really starts to climb: 437m at Ål, 794m at Geilo - the winter sports centre - to 1222m at Finse the highest station on the route. During the 1990s the NSB commissioned the Finse tunnel. The spoil from the tunnel excavation was used to create a causeway over the glacier to the east. This has given NSB a section of line suitable for 160kph running that is probably unique for an altitude of 1200 metres. With a bright blue sky and several metres of snow to the side of the trace it's an exhilarating run for our El18! At Myrdal we meet the wonderful Flåmbanen- perhaps the world's most exciting tourist railway.

This is a ride that everyone will enjoy, even without a specific interest in railways.

The fourth section of our 500km run from Oslo to Bergen starts at Myrdal, the junction station for the Flåmbanen. We have passed the highest point of the line but are still well above the tree line and snow covers the ground on either side of the route. On leaving Myrdal we immediately plunge into the Gravehalsen tunnel. This tunnel was started by Italian navvies and completed by Norwegians, but at a huge cost in human life. It’s a steady descent for mile after mile alongside the tumbling river to the alpine village of Voss.

This station marks the point where the Bergensbanen becomes the Vossebanen - the oldest part of the railway still in operation between Oslo and Bergen. We pass through the new Trollkona tunnel and then run beside the Sørfjorden to Arna. From Arna to Bergen we run under Mount Fløyen, then it's a meander past the Bergen freight yard and into the splendid station.

Join us for an unforgettable journey from the driver's cab of IC2370 BODENSEE on her journey from Konstanz through the Schwarzwald. We start with a look around the lovely holiday area along the lake and a chance to watch the steamers arrive from Switzerland, and trains on their way to Switzerland. The locomotive on our train is a modern class 101, the mainstay of the DB Fernverkher fleet. The run to Singen is along the busy lakeside line through Radolfzell, while Singen itself is a busy commercial centre with a thriving rail terminal and rail linked lineside industry. We have a quick look arround and after an ICT on a run from Zurich to Stuttgart has cleared the line we head into the foothills of the Schwarzwald and begin to climb! On the way to Villingen we pass through Immendingen and Donaueschingen the town at the source of the mighty Danube.

TTR59 starts at Villingen, and is the longest section including the tunnel complex at Triberg that drops us over 400m in 10km between St Georgen and Hornberg. This section also has the most dramatic scenery. The slowest part of the journey is followed by the fastest as we turn west at Hausach and head along the Kinzig valley before arrival at Offenburg. After arrival we have time to take a look at freight activity in the area. We travel the few miles to Kehl the Rhine side port that serves both this quarter of Baden Wertemburg but also the major French city of Strasbourg.
