And they’ll lease those to someone? I will believe it when I see it!

Indeed. But the dual gauge doesn’t go the whole way to Chernivtsi (that’s where my trip started this morning) Thanks for the graphic - retweeted!

I try to explain to all Your visitors using Your photo. Besides, take in consideration that this railway in Ukraine ends to Chernivtsi (Чернівці), a city that before 1940 belonged to Romania (with the name of Cernăuți).

Thello would be the logical option...

Push pull too? If so whose driving trailers will they use?

Indeed. The dual gauge line is for freight near the French border (saw it at Girona I think)

I can’t think of anything else 200km/h that’s approved for FR and BE. Vectron isn’t AFAIK. And SNCB or CFL aren’t going to lease Class 13 I assume.

This wasn’t the easiest trip to plan :-) 40 mins from Iasi now, on my 6th train and 6th ticket since departing Berlin!

In Spain there’s some with 3 rails (Iberian and Standard). I’d not seen it with 4 rails before.

Give them their due: the infra is knackered but they largely make it work!

And if no push pull then Nord is going to be fun to get paths! Could they use Akiem leased BB36000 for the BXL service?

I’ve spent excellent times in Romania and Ukraine before. Efficiency might not be a forte but both are super places to travel!

You think I didn’t check what ran there before going there?

It’s dual gauge line. From just north of Vadul Siret (Ukrainian side) to Dornesti (Romanian side).

Flixtrain proposing 5 new routes in 2021 - 3 daytime routes in France, a Paris-Nice night train, and every 2 hours a Paris-Brussels on the old EuroCity route Let’s see how SNCF seeks to sabotage this!

Dual gauge. For 10km Ukraine side and 20-odd km Romanian side - as far as Dornesti.
