Railcoop fait renaître les lignes de train abandonnées.


Railcoop, comme son nom l’indique, est une société coopérative ferroviaire. Si les amoureux du train l’avaient rêvée, ils n’auraient sans doute pas fait mieux. Elle compte réinvestir plusieurs pans de l’offre ferroviaire peu à peu délaissée par la SNCF et les politiques publiques ces dernières années : trains entre régions permettant d’éviter la centralisation parisienne, fret et train de nuit.

Alstom presents hydrogen train in six federal states in Germany


The #Coradia iLint is the world's first passenger train powered by a #hydrogen fuel cell that generates electric power for traction. This completely emission-free train is quiet and only emits water vapor and condensation.

The Coradia #iLint features several innovations: clean energy conversion, flexible energy storage in batteries and intelligent management of power and available energy.

Purpose-built for use on non-electrified lines, it enables clean, sustainable traction while maintaining high performance.

Bring our railway into public ownership now!

If you’ve ever taken a train in the #UK , you know that rail #privatisation has failed - leaving you with rip off fares and shoddy services.

Now the private rail companies are failing one after another. This is our chance to take back our railway!
  • Transport Secretary Grant #Shapps has said that South Western Railway is “not sustainable” and it’s the “end of the franchise” for Northern
  • Boris Johnson says the "bell is tolling" for West Midlands Trains
  • The East Coast line is already in public ownership after Richard Branson and Stagecoach failed to deliver
Keith Williams is carrying out the biggest review of the railways since 1994. Tell the government to put passengers first!

Grant Shapps and Keith Williams: bring our whole railway into public ownership!

Le retour du train de nuit !...


En Belgique, pas en France.
Mais bon, on peut rêver...

Ce type de voyage déclinait inexorablement depuis le début des années 2000 et l’essor du low-cost aérien, se voyant progressivement abandonné par les compagnies de chemins de fer d’Europe, principalement occidentale. Il semble désormais avoir le vent en poupe, profitant notamment de la préoccupation croissante des touristes pour l’impact environnemental de leur séjour. Il séduit aussi ceux qui ont peur de l’avion ou qui veulent arriver en pleine forme à destination, selon les études menées par ÖBB (société de chemins de fer autrichienne).

Rollin' thru the Sierra Nevadas today. Unfortunately the air was a bit wet so drops on the windows will probably play heck, but it sure was purdy.
