Ticket to Ride No.62: ICE3 Cabride+ Rhine Main NBS


Ticket to Ride No.62: ICE3 Cabride+ Rhine Main NBS

Ref: FHTTR062D


Join us for a run in Europe's fastest train- the ICE3 from Die Bahn. This 320kph machine is on its home ground on the run over the Rhein Main Neubaustrecke (NBS) between Frankfurt Hbf and Cologne. This NBS is the first in Germany that is a dedicated high speed line, and through the Westerwald there are sections that feel like a rollercoaster rather than a railway! The first section is conventional enough - out of the busy Frankfurt Hbf, over the Main past Sportfeld, where a new station is being built to serve the stadium that will host the FIFA World Cup in 2006, and into Frankfurt Flughaven Fernbahnhof. The high speed section begins soon after leaving the airport. For much of the run we are alongside the A3 Motorway, but at 300kph even the most macho German motorists are left trailing in our wake! We go from full power uphill to 75% regenerative braking on the downs - no friction brakes are used over the NBS. We pause at the new Bonn station and then it's ABS - rebuilt line - to Cologne. Over this section the ICE3 set has its own tracks but passes other traffic including freight to nearby Gremberg yard. Over the Hohenzollernbrücke and we are in Cologne.

Ticket to Ride No. 63: Out & About Amsterdam (105-mins)


Ticket to Ride No. 63: Out & About Amsterdam (105-mins)

Ref: FHTTR063D


Amsterdam- the capital city of the Netherlands, though not the administrative capital as that privilege lies with Den Haag, is home to more than half a million people - one million with its satellites. Getting there is easy! You can travel by rail from the UK through the Channel Tunnel and then Brussels, or from Germany in an ICE3 train that runs along the NBS from Frankfurt to Cologne and on to Amsterdam. There is also a connection with Berlin that enters the Netherlands at Bad Bentheim. Most visitors from the UK will arrive by air, we show you Schiphol and how to get down town. We walk you through the public transport systems: trams, ferries and canal boats, and visit the GVB offices at Central Station as it’s the best place to buy your tickets and passes. So now you are ready! The old city has been built on a pattern of concentric semi circles, the houses standing on piles that penetrate the swampy mud to reach the firm sands below.. The city is cut by canals, that are in turn crossed by more than 200 bridges giving the city its special character. Your Ticket to Ride.. team takes you round some principal sights: the Museum Quarter, the Heineken Experience, where we ARE bottles of that fine pale lager travelling through the brewery!, then onto NEMO – the technology centre. We take some day trips: by rail to Hoorn - perhaps the prettiest town in the country - where we make the classic triangular run: steam tram across the marshes to Medemblik, transfer to the MV Friesland for an hour’s sail across the Ijsselmeer to Enkhuizen - where we see a black smith still at work!, and thence back by train to Hoorn and Amsterdam courtesy of the NS, to Utrecht to visit the recently re-opened National Railway Museum, to Den Haag by train - now for many the classic architecture of Den Haag HS station would suffice, but we have a trip to Madurodam - Holland in miniature - in mind! It’s a tram ride of twenty minutes, and after our visit to the miniature wonderland, five minutes more to the seaside at Scheveningen, where you can take the air and lose your money at the casino! The return trip is along the interurban tramway to Delft where we watch genuine Delftware being made and painted. We return home via the world famous bulb fields near Haarlem.

Ticket to Ride No.64: ICE Cabride+ Basel to Karlsruhe (102-mins)


Ticket to Ride No.64: ICE Cabride+ Basel to Karlsruhe (102-mins)

Ref: FHTTR064D


It’s a fine spring morning in June 2005 and we are waiting at the Basel Badische Bahnhof, the German station that lies just within the Swiss Canton of Basel. We await the arrival of ICE 878. The InterCity Express started from Basel SBB, just 5km to the south, and arrives promptly at 10.20. From the cab of the gleaming white ICE1 unit we see Switzerland slip by as we enter Germany at Weil am Rhein. The run to our first stop at Freiburg takes us along

the edge of the Hochschwarzwald through pretty villages with vineyards that produce some of Germany’s finest wines. There is plenty to see on the railway to distract us as this is one of the busiest international rail routes in Europe: each day there are 22 ICEs up and 22 down, Regional Express trains every half hour and EuroCity trains from deep in Switzerland to destinations in Northern Germany. But it’s the colourful assembly of freight trains that are most noticeable. While the lion’s share is in the hands of German freight giant RAILION, one third is in the hands of the Swiss railways- SBB, using modified RE482s in their dark blue and red livery. As we approach Freiburg we pass a Rolling Highway train that has just started her run to Nova in Italy. North of Freiburg it gets ridiculously busy, trains are passing us every few minutes, and southbound EC9 is brought to a halt because of the pure weight of freights in front of her.

Offenburg is a major rail junction where we see a DLC class 66 from Rotterdam. North of the city the nature of our journey changes: we are on an ABS. A new high-speed line has been shoehorned along side the existing line along which the ICEs can run at 250kph, allowing us to sail passed the incessant freights. At Rastatt we follow the westerly of the parallel main lines into Karlsruhe were we have time for a look at the remarkable tram trains running through the city. Narrated and supported with animated graphics.

Ticket to Ride No. 65: Norway Express (100-mins)


Ticket to Ride No. 65: Norway Express (100-mins)

Ref: FHTTR065D


Norway is a big country with a small population. But the Norwegians have engineered a rail network through the uncompromising landscape with great commitment, and have become a world authority on tunnelling in the process! We explore the 3,000 mile network from Halden on the Swedish border in the south to Bodo in the north, from Bergen on the western fjord coast to Eidsvoll in the east. We spend time in Oslo, but mostly we escape the capital and roam the rails in the provinces. In Norway you will see trains that you just don't see elsewhere; like the elk proof class 73s and new regional trains built in Italy, together with a few familiar friends like the Lok 2000- used on long distance and night trains. We see how the trains are maintained for their tough assignments with a visit to the the NSB depot outside Oslo, and have a behind the scenes look at the Flytoget; the 220kph airport express which is the fastest train in Scandinavia. Freight is not forgotten, at Halden you will see Green Cargo with a German Intermodal , while in the far north you will see a GM 66 at work and the Arctic Rail Express being assembled. At Trondheim we see Europe's most northerly tramway and at Hamar visit the National Railway museum for a steam train run. Narrated.

Ticket to Ride No.69: German Railways Part 4 - North Bavaria


Ticket to Ride No.69: German Railways Part 4 - North Bavaria

Ref: FHTTR069D


Bavaria (Bayern) is Germany’s largest Lande. It contains the industrial powerhouses of Nürnberg and Ingolstadt plus the ancient cites of Ulm and Würzburg, important cities set in a beautiful landscapes. We visit them all to see just how much Die Bahn has changed over the last five years. Off the beaten track we follow a pair of diesel operated mainlines south and west of Marktredwitz and visit the Deutsches Dampflok Museum at Neuenmarkt Wirsberg. At Kronach, on the Frankenwaldbahn, we look down from the Schloß on the trains as they make their way to Saalfeld and Leipzig. At Kulmbach we try the local beer at the only Brewery in town with a rail connection. Bamberg has enough local freight traffic to justify a hump marshalling yard and we spend some time there. At Ingolstadt we see the NBS nearing completion and Audi cars being prepared for a journey north while at Ulm we scale the Dom to give you unprecedented views over the city.

Ticket to Ride No.70: Swiss Express Part 1- The Northwest


Ticket to Ride No.70: Swiss Express Part 1- The Northwest

Ref: FHTTR070D


While not an EU country Switzerland is integral to cross-European freight traffic and has come to represent the very best in both passenger and freight transport by rail. The national railway, the SBB, is forward thinking and well funded. In this instalment we look at the main routes from Basel – the great entry point from Germany – down through Olten to the capital Bern. This area has one of Europe’s least known high-speed lines, recently built to reduce the journey time between Bern and Zurich and Basel to below the magic one-hour and make the BAHN 2000 project workable. We follow the new line and discuss its implications. We start at Basel and make the grand tour. At Bern we visit the modern station and see the BLS who now run the capital’s S Bahn trains in the city and further afield. We see a TGV near the famous Saanebrücke on the BLS line between Bern and Neuchâtel. On the freight side we explore the three Rhine side ports in Basel: Kleinhüningen, Birsfelden and Auhafen where we see coconut being unloaded the hard way from a rail wagon! At Feldschlösschen beer is dispatched while at Holcim, one of Europe’s largest cement producers, robot shunters assist the SBB –CARGO MAK1700. You will see ICNs, FLIRTS, Doubledeck stock and many of your old favourites including the BLS 4/4 still in brown livery. Filmed from the ground, water and air.

ÖBB EC Cabride+ Vienna to Bregenz Part 1: Vienna to St.Pölten

At 7.00am we climb aboard the ÖBB Taurus locomotive - she spent the night receiving some TLC at the nearby Wien West depot and is in fine shape for the journey ahead of her. This will be along the Westbahn - the ÖBB's busiest corridor and arguably the most important east/west freight route in Europe. Along the line we have time to discuss the new section of the Westbahn and what it will mean for the railways in Austria and beyond. But there is plenty to see today including a host of overnight trains, thanks to our early start and visiting locomotives from Germany. The air is cool and dry and the sun has risen, casting a shadow of the locomotive ahead of us. We begin one of the great railway journies of the world

Ref: FHTTR073D


ÖBB EC Cabride+ Vienna to Bregenz Part 2 - St.Pölten to Linz.

The first part of our journey was along the classic Westbahn, though we saw the preparation for the New Westbahn, in the section near Vienna which will be the most expensive and the last to be completed. West of St Pölten however most of the work has been finished- a 250kph super railway that runs for the most part along side the classic route, with few sound screens between the railways you get to see everything! The section includes: Melk, Ybbs, Amstetten, St Valentin and Enns - all have freight facilities you can clearly see as we rush through. We set off early from Vienna so many of the trains we pass are overnight services from Austria's neighbours. These include: EN 491 Hans Albers, EN 229 the Donau Spree Kurier, and even the Orient Express from Paris! The approach to Linz will amaze you- freight facilities everywhere!

Ticket to Ride No. 76: ÖBB EC Cabride+ part 5 Innsbruck to St Anton -The Arlberg 1.

Ref: FHTTR099D


Welcome back to Austria. We are in the mountains now, first along the Inn valley and then the Sanna. This is the Arlbergbahn (Westbahn) - one of the great scenic railways of Europe. Once again it's a line being modernised, sections that have not changed for decades are juxtaposed with a 21st century railway. Not the busiest section of our run but scenically most dramatic on the sunny day of our visit.

Along the way we are passed by wagonload trains that epitomise the local ecomomy - lumber! then import traffic from Switzerland and then oil. But more interesting is the number of lineside facilities full of railwagons! This is not after all the Ruhr! As far as Ötztal, 45km from Innsbruck, the Arlbergbahn is a modern double track 140 -160 kph railway. Beyond, there is still much work to be done to bring the railway to modern standards, although some projects such as the Landeck NBS with its 2.3km tunnel have been completed. A run through some serious country for all to enjoy.

Ref: FHTTR077D


At St Anton we plunge into the double track Arlbergtunnel, it's 10km long but we don't keep you in the dark! Instead we take the opportunity to tell you what the future has in store for ÖBB services between Vienna, Salzburg and the Vorarlberg. It's a complicated story that involves DB and SBB! The Arlbergbahn descent to Bludenz is as spectacular as the ascent. Not all the stations we pass are original, some have been washed away by avalanches and storms - this is not an easy place to run a railway! We are incredibly lucky with the weather and so get some fantastic views over the Klostertal mountain range. When we reach the Ill industry pops up more frequently. Bludenz is a busy town- home of Milka Chocolate and the junction with the the Montafonerbahn to Schruns. The character of the route changes completely when we reach Feldkirch, here there is a connection with Switzerland through Liechtenstein. The run to Bregenz along the ausbaustrecke is busy, you will be amazed just how many freight facilities you can spot including the new Vbf at Wolfurt, a brewery, an aluminium extrusion works and several engineering factories, plus intermodals and, naturally, timber loading sites. Bregenz is an important tourist town on Lake Constance, benefiting from a stunning setting near the borders with both Germany and Switzerland - a lovely place to conclude our mammoth journey across Austria.

Ticket to Ride No. 78: Austrian Railways Part 2 - South of Vienna

Ref: FHTTR078D


We examine the railways south of Vienna to the Hungarian and Slovenian borders. We see the OBB at work and also a private operator - the Steiermärkische Landesbahn (StLB) who run two lines in the area: the standard gauge line from Feldbach to Bad Gleichenberg sees ancient EMUs hauling short strings of modern freight vans! While the Feistritztalbahn runs 760mm gauge steam trains between Weiz and Birkfeld. Running east from Graz is the Steirische Ostbahn, a relatively unknown line linking Austria with Hungary through Szombathely and Györ. Lots of green MAV freight wagons here! The last station on the Südbahn is Spielfeld-Strasse. This is the border exchange point with Slovenian Railways. Strange looking electric locomotives with French antecedents take over from modern OBB machines and head for Ljubljana and the Adriatic. Finally in Graz we are back in the 21st Century and visit the Hbf and the high tech Graz Cargo centre. Narrated RT 82 mins.

Ticket to Ride No.79: Swiss Cab ride+ Sargans to Zürich HB

Ref: FH093D


It’s a lovely day for a train ride alongside the north Swiss Lakes of Walensee and Zürichsee Our train is IC 572 the 1109 from Chur, where metre gauge connections were made to the fashionable resort of St Moritz, to Zürich and Basel. We join at Sargans with class 460 leading. We know the 460 well, we have filmed from the type before eight hours through the Norwegian mountains! Incredibly we will pass more trains in this 1hr and 10 minutes than we crossed all the way to Bergen! The huge single windscreen of our locomotive makes our cameraman’s life very easy. On time we start our run north and west. There is a lot packed into this run. In addition to all the Swiss trains you would expect there are a dozen freight facilities that we pass all working hard to supply wagons to the SBB Cargo wagonload network. While the route is a delight there are several quite long NBS tunnel sections, these we edit down as we don’t want to keep you in the dark too long! Filmed in July 2006 in lovely early summer weather with the sun behind us.
