Hors d'oeuvres - the latest, most interesting news

This part of our website has been prepared to extend our Railvolution news service. Its objective is to offer you snippets of the latest, most interesting news, accompanied by photos. On one hand this will let you to have a sneak preview of what the forthcoming number of Railvolution will contain. On the other, it will enable our editorial staff to provide you with information that is at their fingertips – and why waste exciting pieces of news while waiting until we have the printed version of the magazine ready for distribution? What is more, on the website pages we are in a position to publish photos for which there will be insufficient space in the printed magazine!

Please bear in mind that it is not our intention to 'digitalise' Railvolution! The printed magazine will still continue, with its full range of articles and news items. But we hope that you enjoy this new offering, and that it will stimulate your interest in our unique publication.

In the days approaching the opening of the world’s largest rail-related trade fair, a variety of new trains, some of which have never before been seen in public, converge on the German capital from all directions. Here we offer you a foretaste of what will be on show, including PESA’s German "cousin" of the Czech LINK DMU, and the same manufacturer’s new Gama electric locomotive. These photos were taken on 13 September 2012 at Nudow (southwest of Berlin), and at Wustermark station (west of Berlin).
