Change of chairmanship of the East-West Traffic Group of the UIC Commercial and Distribution Forum

This year’s meeting of the EWT Steering Group took place in Kosice, Slovakia, from 30 June to 2 July 2015, at the invitation of ZSSK. Tariff and accounting experts from the following railways attended: ČD (Czech Republic), DB (Germany), MÁV-START (Hungary), ÖBB (Austria), PKP (Poland), RŽD (Russian Federation), UŽ (Ukraine) and ZSSK (Slovakia). The focus of the meeting was on the further development of the tariff documents and the impact of EU passenger rights regulation on the conditions of carriage for East-West traffic.

Up-to-date information on MERITS (timetable data storage), PRIFIS (fare exchange), the EU regulatory framework with regard to telematics applications for passenger services (TAP) and new developments in the East–West tariff complemented the ambitious agenda. In parallel to the works of the tariff experts, the accounting experts treated their special topics in a separate meeting.

Alexander Masalowicz (DB), chairman of the EWT Steering Group, will step down from his international functions by the end of 2015. He has successfully chaired the group for 19 years, and he looks back at times when Eastern and Western railway philosophies were still in the process of growing together. The core of his activities was to harmonise as much as possible the respective tariffs and conditions and to enable a common tariff data exchange via the UIC PRIFIS platform.

The participants elected Jan Vávra (ČD) as successor to Alexander. Jan will take over the chairmanship of the EWT from January 2016.

United States: Amtrak Guest Rewards program improvements to debut in January 2016

Amtrak passengers will have more options to earn and redeem points under an extensively improved, simplified Amtrak Guest Rewards program that launches in January 2016.

“This program takes Amtrak Guest Rewards to the next level with improved earnings potential and expanded, simplified redemptions," said Matt Hardison, Amtrak’s executive vice president of marketing and sales. “We are confident this program combines what passengers want most – the ability to grow points earnings rapidly with the freedom to use those points in the way that best fits their individual travel needs.”

Improvements in the updated Amtrak Guest Rewards program include:

  • No more blackout dates and Acela® time-of-day travel restrictions;
  • Bonus points for Acela® and Business class travel;
  • Points that never expire with any qualifying account activity within 36 months;
  • A simplified redemption structure for free Amtrak travel based on ticket price instead of zones or routes—as low as 800 points per trip;
  • Redemption opportunities for multi-ride tickets and monthly passes;
  • Ability to book, modify, and cancel reward tickets themselves via Amtrak self-service channels; and
  • A “cash-plus-points” option that provides more flexibility.

Amtrak Guest Rewards has also launched a helpful points estimator tool, which shows customers exactly how many points they will earn for their travel or how many points they will need to redeem for an Amtrak trip.

Sweden: Green Cargo starts intermodal shuttle between Skåne and Stockholm Årsta

The first train with trailers and containers ran between Skåne and Stockholm on 1 September. Green Cargo will be running five departures per week and, initially, the train will run between Malmö and Stockholm. From 19 October, Trelleborg will also be linked to this intermodal shuttle.

The train has daily departures from Malmö Sunday through Thursday, from both the harbour and the intermodal terminal in Malmö. Goods receiving and departure times are adapted to the arrival of shipping in the harbour and to trains arriving from the continent. The intermodal train arrives at the Stockholm Årsta intermodal terminal early the following day.

“This is a long-term initiative with solutions tailored to the market for intermodal volumes. This is relevant for both continental and domestic volumes,” says Green Cargo’s Sales Director Richard Kirchner and points out that a need exists for new intermodal routes in the vacuum that arose when a previous train operator closed its intermodal routes in Sweden just over three and a half years ago.

Tremendous numbers of trucks and trailers travel between Skåne and Stockholm, and a substantial portion of these volumes can now use rail for long-distance transportation. The offering has already attracted substantial interest from shipping lines and freight forwarders.

“We have adapted the entire solution to meet market requirements and this means later goods receiving and departure times as well as early arrival times at both ends of the link. The offering is further strengthened by a late last-order time. Customers can book their freight right up until 12 o’clock noon, the same day the freight is leaving,” says Richard Kirchner.

Green Cargo’s Malmö-Stockholm intermodal shuttle serves trains and shipping carrying road freight to and from Germany. When the service links Trelleborg with the route to and from Stockholm, the service will serve even more shipping to and from Germany as well as Poland.

Taiwan: TRA actively nurtures electronics talents by enhancing exchanges with leading international organisations

In order to acquire the latest cable and track technologies and increase the international collaboration opportunities, TRA and Japan’s Railway Technical Research Institute (RTRI) will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by the end of this year.

RTRI is a research institute specialised in railway technology research. Its research activities are involved with developing railway technologies, drawing up railway technology standards, or releasing railway-related documents in order to promote the development of forward-looking and innovative technologies for railway industry. From 14 – 16 October 2014, TRA invited the RTRI experts to join an investigation meeting to study the cause of cable incidences. At that time, both parties reached a consensus of periodically conducting mutual visits in terms of issues related to civil and electrical engineering. Meanwhile, both parties agree to license emerging track and cable technologies from international community to enhance TRA’s power supply system and strengthen track structure.

Following the Taiwan visit initiated by the British Minister of State for Transport, Baroness Kramer, TRA has decided to work with the British consultancy group to apply the Whole Life Cycle Costing system to the TRA cable renewal project. Additionally, considering the National Skills Academy for Railway Engineering (NSARE) was established to support talent training and tackle current and future skills needs within the railway engineering industry in the UK, TRA is initially concluding an agreement with certain domestic colleges to strengthen the development of railway technologies and talents.

TRA hopes to enhance the technological exchanges with international leading railway organisations or institutes and learn valuable experience form them. Furthermore, in the near future TRA will designate the staff to international railway organisations to acquire overseas training.

Italy: Work has resumed at Naples-Afragola high speed railway station

Work at the new Naples-Afragola high speed railway station resumed on 13 July 2015.

On this day, the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Graziano Delrio carried out an inspection on a visit to the Afragola worksite, during which Rete Ferroviaria Italiana CEO Maurizio Gentile and Italferr CEO Matteo Triglia showed him the current state of progress.

Campania Regional Authority President Vincenzo De Luca, Mayor of Afragola Domenico Tuccillo and Gruppo Astaldi President Paolo Astaldi also attended.

The first stage of the work will be completed by the first quarter of 2017, when this new Naples-Afragola high speed railway station can be used by passengers.

Work to ensure that commercial services run smoothly will commence in stages over the following years.

Worksite activities were resumed by “Associazione Temporanea di Imprese (ATI – Temporary Association of Businesses) Astaldi-NBI in March 2015.

The new Naples Afragola high speed railway station is located just a few kilometres north of Naples and will become a modal interchange with the HS/HC Rome-Naples-Salerno line and the High Capacity Naples-Benevento-Bari line via the Naples-Cancello variant. Furthermore, this station is an intermediate stop on the HS/HC Rome-Naples-Salerno line, thereby directly serving the extensive and highly-populated Naples, Caserta and Nola hinterland.

The main station building – a majestic bridge-shaped structure 400 metres long covering over 30,000 square metres – will cross over the tracks to connect the areas through which the railway line passes, thereby ensuring continuity for the landscape and road system. Huge windows make up the main building, with sinuous shapes abstractly recalling the image of a modern train in motion.

There will also be green areas, car parks (around 1,400 spaces) and a terminal for tourist and regional buses (located in the outdoor area covering around 150,000 square metres), all of which are linked to local main roads.

This new high speed railway station was designed by architect Zaha Hadid, winner of the international competition run by Ferrovie dello Stato.

Croatia: High Level Regional Freight Meeting of national railway freight operators was held on 4 September in Zagreb, organised by HŽ Cargo

In addition to HŽ Cargo’s Management, the meeting was attended by Mr Igor Cigula, Assistant Minister from the Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Transport and Infrastructure, Ms Renata Suša, President of HŽ Infrastruktura’s Management Board, and presidents and managers of the following regional railway undertakings: SŽ Tovorni prevoz, Željeznice Federacije Bosne i Hercegovine, Željeznice Republike Srpske, Montecargo, Makedonski železnički transport and Trainkos.
Mr Igor Cigula, Assistant Minister, talked about the market liberalisation and its impact on freight transport services, and pointed out that the meeting was an opportunity to resolve open issues.

Mr Danijel Krakić, President of HŽ Cargo’s Management Board, considers that there is a need for such a meeting and that this is one of the initial gatherings in a series to come. He indicated that a common goal of the regional national railway operators is to retain the leading position on their own domestic transport market and to provide customers with quality services. In addition, he takes it that we can alleviate administrative, technical, technological and infrastructure obstacles by common action, in order to increase efficiency, profitability and competitiveness on the market.

Ms Renata Suša, President of HŽ Infrastruktura’s Management Board, presented the investments in Croatian railroads, totalling around two billion Euro, currently the largest capital investment in infrastructure in Europe.

The national railway operators have come to a conclusion that further development of prosperous railway operators will partly depend on good multilateral and regional cooperation. Furthermore, the transport corridors passing through the countries in the region are demonstrating the potential of this European area as an integration system, acknowledging that they are inseparable from the rest of the European transport network.

At the meeting, the participants signed the Memorandum on Mutual Cooperation. The Memorandum has established a framework for enhanced cooperation among the national freight operators. This cooperation involves providing mutual support in implementation of organisational, technical and operational modifications, making available own experience, exchanging professional know-how, information and ideas.

Energy Efficiencies and Carbon Strategies at the railway fair EXPO 2015

The 5th International Fair of Railway Equipment and Technologies EXPO 1520 was held from 2 – 5 September at the Experimental Ring of JSC Russian Railway Research Institute (VNIIZhT) in Shcherbinka, Moscow.

EXPO 1520 is a biennial show featuring an exhibition and a bespoke conference which explores all major aspects of rolling stock manufacturing and operation. The railway fair features the latest developments in railway equipment, technology, infrastructure, services and logistics. EXPO 1520 brings together all major stakeholders namely manufacturers, users, suppliers and regulating bodies. It is the only international rolling stock exhibition in the 1520 gauge wide track space.

The highest standards of organisation, the active participation of international companies, and the event’s dimension and a unique position in the 1520 space all ensured that the railway fair was attended by senior level government officials, heads of relevant ministries and executives of leading European companies as honorary guests and delegates.

The exhibition showcased the all-new rolling stock and railway equipment produced in Russia, CIS and EU. Live presentations of locomotives and railway cars make EXPO 1520 a unique place enabling manufacturers to spotlight their rolling stock in front of the users, experts and media. There was also the Dynamic Exposition parade of railway equipment. The 3000-plus visitors were able to see more than 20 full-scale models of rail stock equipment in action.

One of the most relevant train models presented in the parade was the compressed natural gas locomotive GT1h-002. This locomotive has no analogues in the world running on compressed natural gas, a fuel that meets the highest world environmental standards. The GT1h-002 not only makes for improved traction, but also reduced consumption of power and diesel fuel and lower levels of harmful emissions.

In this context, on 3 September, Gabriel Castañares Hernández, UIC Senior Advisor in Energy and CO2, presented the experience of the energy data collection and sustainability reporting at UIC during the round table organised by RZD: “Environment Protection, Power Efficiency and Energy”. The round table, moderated by Boris Ivanov, first Deputy Head of the Department of Technical Policy of RZD, included the presentations of 10 participants from different fields connected to environment and sustainability in rail.

During this round table, UIC highlighted the relevancy of the Environmental Strategy Reporting System, introducing the latest performance of RZD and the European rail sector, presenting the strategy and targets for middle and long term, and the next “Train To Paris” campaign to show our main stakeholders the advantages of railways in terms of energy efficiency and sustainability and the low carbon advantages of modal shift to rail.
