Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Cologne-Aachen high-speed line is the German part of the Trans-European transport networks project high-speed line Paris-Brussels-Cologne. It is not a newly built railway line, but a project to upgrade the existing railway line which was opened in 1841 by the Rhenish Railway Company. When it was continued into Belgium in 1843, it became the world's first international railway line. The line inside Germany has a length of about 70 kilometres. The first 40 km from Cologne to D ren have been rebuilt. Since 2002 the line allows for speeds up to 250 km/h. Separate tracks have been built parallel to the high-speed tracks for local S-Bahn traffic.show more
