The research for #CrossBorderRail has concluded – now it’s time for the political conclusions!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This blog has been rather quiet over the past few months as I have been running a project about cross border railways in the EU entitled #CrossBorderRail – and most of the daily reporting on that has been on Twitter.

Now the research for the project – on the rails of Europe – has concluded it is time for me to draw up my conclusions and proposals for change.

The first detailed conclusions will be presented at an event at Stadler Rail in Berlin on 29th August – at an event to be attended by Anna Lührmann (Minister of State for Europe and Climate Action) – it’s free to attend, so do come along! All the details here.

The broad diagnosis of the problems I found are summarised in this video:

It is also available on:

The statistics and timetables for the whole trip – as travelled – are in a Google Sheet here. The route-km from Pierre Beyssac’s tool then allow me to calculate the average speed of each train I took, and total up the kilometres – each day, and for the project as a whole.

It comes out as follows:

Border Crossings

Bike legs 34
Scheduled buses

Rail replacement buses

Ferry 3
Night train 4
Train 186
Rail replacement Tesla

Taxi 1
Rail km 30171
Bike km 956
Bus, ferry, taxi, Tesla km
