    Wikipedia Article
    This line was already suggested. But since this one of my favorite routes that should come to TSW and it would make a great basis for further routes in Denmark and Sweden, I'll suggest it again. The line is rather short with a large amount underground, but this is compensated by the need for two completely different safety and signaling systems. There are also many possibilities to extend this route in either direction. This line also unlocks Denmark, Sweden, and Norway for further DLCs (Norway uses the same safety system as Sweden; the Norweigan signaling system is very simplistic).

    Quick Facts:

    Length: 38km
    Max. Speed: 200km/h
    Signaling Systems: Swedish | Danish
    Safety Systems: Swedish ATC (EBICAB 700) | Danish ATC (ZUB 123)

    Route:


    The line starts in København the capital of Denmark. From there it takes a large turn towards the airport and dips into a tunnel. The tunnel reemerges on the island of Peberholm and continues on an 8km long bridge towards Sweden. On the Swedish mainland, the line turns north and dips into another tunnel.
    The line terminates in the Swedish city of Malmö in the underground main station.
    The voltage change is located at Lernacken at the Swedish end of the bridge. The signaling change is located on Peberholm at the Danish end of the bridge.

    Stations:
    København H
    Ørestad
    Tårnby
    Kastrup Lufthavn
    Hyllie
    Triangeln
    Malmö C

    Optional Extras:
    ICE TD:
    The ICE TD (BR 605) is no longer in service and only ran to København. But extensions to this route could bring this train to TSW. The train was operated by DB and DSB.

    This would be good! Great rolling stock and I’m all in favour for Danish or Swedish routes! It’s quite short though. Maybe it could be lengthened to Roskilde?

    Yes it is quite short, but there are many options for extending this line. The problem is that you'll need to implement two countries at once to make the route work. Therefore I've only suggested the main route to keep the overall workload even.

    Very short route and there must be tutorial on how to switch 25kv 50hz Denmark ZUB123 to 15kv 16.7hz EBICAB 700. Otherwise scenario failed failure to change voltage and train safety system. The same warning message will also occur on one of the Southern Extensions Copenhagen Puttgarden via Felmharn Tunnel. That one actually involves ZUB123 to PZB/LZB Sifa the voltage change is the same as Denmark to Sweden. Reason for this is that 15kv 16.7hz is used in Austria Germany Norway Sweden and Switzerland.

    The voltage change is not so much different to the one on the LGV. Of course you must learn where the controls are for each train but the procedure is basically the same. The safety system change is automatic.
    The Fehmarnbelt tunnel is still under construction. Until December 2019 trains used ferries to get to Puttgarden but at the moment they are all diverged via Hamburg.

    Although it's short, it could definitely be a good experience. It might be helped be being branched a lot to improve the variety of things to do. Especially on the Swedish side, you could include both ways from the bridge to the central station, the industrial zone in Malmö and maybe the route to Trelleborg - this could then be the first instance of putting freight cars on ships and those taking them away/bringing in new ones. On the Danish side, you'd use the sidings at the airport to store units, maybe bring in fuel. All of a sudden you have basically two routes, a lot of operations and services ranging in length from 20-minute rides to hour-long freights and shuntings.

    Thank you for telling me once that tunnel is completed this can then join Hamburg Lübeck TSW 2 route. That should actually permit you to operate Hamburg Puttgarden Copenhagen-Malmö. Then at Copenhagen Station you can take over AI Services to Malmo. That is if you actually own Hamburg-Lübeck & Copenhagen-Malmö.

    The Swedish Transport Administration publishes detailed railway data that is very useful for a route creator:

    - Speed limits
    - Electrification
    - Track numbering
    - Curve radius including data for easements
    - Gradient info including vertical curves
    - Signals (placement/type/ID)
    - Signs
    - Mileposts (km posts)
    - Catenary (with coordinates for each individual catenary pole!)
    - Platform data (length/height)
    - Type of sleepers and fastening system
    - Ballast type
    - Bridge/tunnel data

    Browser viewable: https://njdbwebb.trafikverket.se/SeTransportnatverket
    Data available in various file formats (can be imported to e.g. Google Earth): https://lastkajen.trafikverket.se/
    Data and photos for bridges/tunnels/overpasses: https://batman.trafikverket.se/externportal

    Having created some routes for TS, I can say the access to all this data has really made route building a lot of easier as it takes away so much of the guesswork and detective work. Hopefully it means we can also see a Swedish route for TSW2 one day!

    I’m very glad that there are more calls for Scandinavian routes. It nice to see that it’s not just a few of us putting these routes forward.

    I would love to see this in TSW 2 and maybe if needed a longer route from Østerport - København - Malmø. Or extended on the Swedish side.
