    Er DSBs IC4-togsæt på vej til Libyen? Intet tyder på det, men tilsyneladende bliver der kørt prøvekørsel med IC4-togsæt på en lukket strækning i det nordafrikanske land.

    Libya mulls next phase of coastal railway

    THE LIBYAN government is reportedly assessing a feasibility study for the next phase of it’s ambitious plan to link Egypt and Tunisia with a railway running the entire length of the country’s Mediterranean coast.

    MEED reported last month that the study by Dorsch, Germany, outlines alignment options ranging from 440 km. to 480 km. for the section from Benghazi to Tobruk in northeast Libya. Dorsch is also believed to be studying the 150 km. stretch between Tobruk and the Egyptian border near El Sallomi.

    Russian Railways (RZD) is currently building the 551 km. Benghaze – Surt line, while China Railway Construction Company (CRCC) has the contract for the 352 km. Surt – Al Khums stretch.

    Demonstration runs are now taking place on a completed 5 km. section of the Tripoli – Ras Adjir line, which is being built by CRCC. AnsaldoBreda has supplied a 200 km/h four-car DMU, which is believed to be from the batch of IC4 trains originally destined for Danish State Railways (DSB).

    – Mon de kunne bruge 82 mere?

    OPDATERING! (Tirsdag den 15. februar 2010, 10:00)
    Den danske avis Ingeniøren har også taget historien op, og faktisk fået et svar fra DSB:
    Et dansk IC4-tog er blevet spottet i Libyen. Men hvad laver det i det afrikanske land? Det vidste DSB ikke. Faktisk vidste de ikke engang, at det var der: DSB’s IC4-tog dukker op i Libyen.
