“TOGETHER FOR EUROPE – NEW LINES FOR NIGHT TRAINS“
At a press conference on the 8th December the Swiss, German, Austrian & French state railways announced their plan to co-operate in the launch of 4 new night train services within the next 3 years. This will give rail users to/from the UK a greater choice of connections from Eurostar day services in Paris & Brussels onto night trains going onto Rome, Vienna, Barcelona for example.
“EVERY LITTLE HELPS” or PROGRESS ON 7 CROSS BORDER RAIL LINKS
Thanks to an agreement between the Grand-Est region in France and the Rheinland-Pfalz region in Germany 7 regular cross-border rail services will be running from December 2024. Every improvement in such links makes the rail alternative for UK residents travelling to/from Europe just that little bit more attractive.
