Today's Railways Europe 293: July 2020

In Stock

The July 2020 issue of Today's Railways Europe is packed with railway news and features from all over mainland Europe. This month we have included a Headline News Special looking at how each of Europe’s railways have responded to the Covid-19 crisis.

Across the continent, lockdown measures have closed borders and prevented people from travelling. Train operators and infrastructure managers have had to quickly adapt to an evolving situation, with railway workers on the front line of efforts to keep essential supplies moving. In Today’s Railways Europe 293 we report on how the industry has risen to the challenge and in very little time implemented huge operational changes, including substantially revised timetables and social distancing measures.

We also have 21 pages of our usual news round-up. News stories include:

  • Final unrefurbished Eurostar set withdrawn
  • CD Cargo TRAXX on test
  • EuroDual enters service in Germany
  • Paris RER New Generation EMU emerges
  • First Rielsfera TGV heads for Spain

Our feature articles in this issue have a Central European flavour:

  • Major changes ahead for the Hungarian locomotive fleet: With orders for new battery EMUs and electric locos on the horizon, Ferenc Joó reviews the current status of the MÁV-Start fleet.
  • The Elbtalbahn: A scenic international artery: Quintus Vosman looks at current operations on the busy and scenic main line between the Czech–German border and Dresden.
  • The Railways of Eastern Slovakia: Andrew Thompson uncovers the huge variety of railway operations to be found in the region surrounding Slovakia’s second city, Košice.
  • KŽC Doprava: Keeping classic Czech diesel traction in business: Quintus Vosman examines the fleet and operations of this Czech charter train and regional operator.
