UIC launches the book Dream Stations: a Worldwide Odyssey on 10 October 2017 in Paris

An innovative look at the world of railway stations

On 10 October, UIC hosted the launch of a brand-new work entitled Dream Stations: a Worldwide Odyssey, published by Langages du Sud Editions and produced in collaboration with UIC and its members.

This publication, which presents a selection of 54 of the most beautiful and emblematic railway stations in the world, sheds new light on these historic monuments, looking at their history, architecture and style, and pays tribute to those who built them. The work also makes the cinema an essential part of its journey, showing how railway stations have been immortalised in a number of films.

The event was opened by Mr Jean-Pierre Loubinoux, UIC Director General, who introduced the guest speakers and spoke about the collaboration between UIC and the Langages du Sud publishing house. He highlighted the importance of railway stations, as places of interest and important living spaces within cities.

He said:

Stations are gateways for travelling to places steeped in culture. They also represent a dream of future mobility, from station to station, in a free and open world, thanks to the work of our great-grandparents who had great dreams, and thanks to the dreams of our children, who have set their sights even higher than us. UIC was very proud to be involved in this dream and this project.

The publisher of the book, Patricia Defever-Kapferer, then described the journey she made with her team across the five continents to discover over 50 railway stations, to learn about their stories and appreciate how they have contributed to the transformation of the railways.

She said:

This book is the first of its kind: it’s a world tour, a vision of railway’s imprint through stations – and to that I would add the passion of the men and women who make their stations a unique and emblematic space within their city’s architecture and development.

Last but not least, the author of the publication, Marie-Pascale Rauzier, then gave details about her experience of writing the book.

The launch was followed by a networking reception which included a book signing by the author Marie-Pascale Rauzier.

UIC Director General Jean-Pierre Loubinoux appointed new Board Member of the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT)

Jean-Pierre Loubinoux, Director General of UIC, was recently appointed new Board Member of the Partnership on Sustainable, Low Carbon Transport (SLoCaT).

SLoCaT is a multi-stakeholder partnership of over 90 organisations around the globe. This is the global voice on Sustainable Transport, represented at events such as the Conferences of Parties (COP), UN Habitat and also shaping specific events such as Transport Day.

UIC has developed a close partnership with SLoCaT over the last few years, seeking to promote sustainable transport in worldwide policies on climate change and sustainability. In 2015, alongside COP21, UIC welcomed Transport Day and more recently the Transport Initiatives Meeting in preparation for COP23 to take place in Bonn, Germany in November 2017.

In relation with his previous appointment to the United Nations High Level Advisory Group for Sustainable Transport in August 2014, and all the work done since the Climate Conference COP15 in order to act in favour of sustainable mobility based on the advantages of rail transport, the nomination of Jean-Pierre Loubinoux to the SLoCat’s board complements the presence of rail among the other transport actors represented in SLoCat.

UIC represents both private and public sector members who provide passenger and freight services in developing and developed countries. Whilst rail is often cited as the backbone of sustainable mobility, transport will only realise its full potential through the development of multimodality. Mr Loubinoux guarantees that he will surely use his position to promote a whole-system approach.

The new board had their first meeting on 10 October 2017 to welcome new Members and work on the next milestones for the transport sector, including COP23. You can learn more on the planning note for COP23 on the SLoCaT website here:

“The New Silk Roads: the next big thing in Logistics”

On 12 October, Deutsche Verkhers Zeitung (DVZ) held a market oriented seminar in Düsseldorf, the focus of which was the potential of the new Silk Roads and Eurasian rail corridor development.

As underlined by Sebastian Reimann, DVZ Deputy Chief Editor, who moderated the event, the seminar was the opportunity for business representatives from the entire transport chain to exchange on market opportunities, economic trends and logistics requirements.

In her opening speech, Lili Tao, Vice Consul General of the Chinese Consulate General in Düsseldorf, reminded the audience of the global economic impact of the Chinese OBOR (one belt one road) initiative and how it exceeded all expectations. She also underlined the crucial role of German hubs such as Duisburg and Hamburg as European distribution nodes to help serve an increasing number of destinations in Europe. She closed her welcome speech by saying that “those who work alone contribute but those who work together multiply”.

UIC, represented by Sandra Géhénot, Freight Director, was invited to present the results of the study commissioned from Roland Berger consultancy on the status and development of Eurasian rail corridors and their potential impact on the European rail freight corridors (RFCs).

She indicated that the study identified that after growing with CAGR 140% between 2014-16 to a volume of around 140,000 TEU in 2016, Eurasian rail transport is forecasted to reach around 640,000 TEU in the long-term (2027). Interviews with relevant stakeholders confirmed that the success factors for Eurasian rail freight have stayed largely constant in the last years. The establishment of regular services has improved their fulfillment and the focus in the coming years should be based on efficiency gains in operations as well as on a broader differentiation in services.

The Southern routes, also commonly referred to as “Silk Roads”, are forecasted to take over only a small share of the general Eurasian rail transport, around 3%. Their potential lies mainly in the connection of new markets like Turkey, Iran and South Asia to the EU and to East Asia. Concerning European Rail Freight Corridors, only a slight interconnection to Eurasian rail freight can be observed at the moment. But since many of the improvement potentials are placed in Europe, a stronger interconnection concerning border procedures, process improvements inside Europe and cross-border project developments could strongly benefit Eurasian traffic flows.

The presentation, which gave an overview of route development led to more specific round table discussions in which the key actors in Eurasian rail development took an active part.

Automatic coupling for freight traffic: next steps

On 11 October, 35 representatives from railway companies, infrastructure managers and industry suppliers met in Zurich to discuss options for automatic coupling in rail freight operations.

The seminar was organised at the kind invitation of SBB and as a follow-up action from the High Level Freight Meeting during which CEOs discussed issues impacting rail freight productivity.

Ms Anja Maria Sontag, SBB project manager, opened the seminar and explained the state of play in Switzerland. The business approach presented to the audience identified a positive business scenario especially for the first and last mile operation in Switzerland which constitutes almost 60% of the production costs incurred by the domestic traffic. She closed her presentation confirming SBB’s goal to launch pilots with the combined transport domestic wagon load market segment.

Mr Minary, SNCF, then took the floor and particularly underlined the need to include such initiatives in an overall approach towards automation of processes. He clearly stressed SNCF’s approach towards providing added value and concluded that automatic coupling will be part of the system only if there is a sustainable business model, if it is considered a key lever of a new system and not a standalone technology and if there is a standard. In his view a sector’s approach to the issue is needed.

The third initiative was presented by Mr Meuser from DB Cargo who started his analysis based on changes in industry operating models which need to be mirrored in rail logistics. He too stressed the need for a European approach aimed at efficiency increases, at implementing enablers for automated processes whilst progressing on societal factors such as noise, safety improvements etc. He shared a vision for implementation on rail freight corridors by 2030 whilst underlying the need for a coordinated migration plan.

Finally, Mr Mathias Nell from Rail Cargo Group provided an insight into RCG’s approach. The need for an international perspective was once again underlined and he too endorsed the view according to which the sector needs to move from intelligent trains to intelligent production and to automated production. He concluded by saying that the rail freight sector needs to get the best out of today and still be among the best tomorrow!

In her conclusion, Ms Leonie Lendenmann, SBB “Sherpa” for the CEO TF, mentioned that “if this exchange of best practices had to be summarised with a few words, these would be:
-  The need for a positive business case
-  The need for a European approach
-  The need to ensure interoperability and have a standard for the sector
-  The need to ensure a coordinated migration plan.”

The UIC Freight Forum, as the technical arm of the CEO Task Force, will continue to address this issue and place it within the bigger picture of the digital work on hand.

United States: Amtrak “Ready to Build” campaign highlights critical need for infrastructure investment

On October 4, Amtrak unveiled the “Ready to Build” campaign, which includes a series of short films showcasing five critical investments that are vital to the realization of a renewed, modern passenger rail system.

The campaign emphasizes needed investments at our major stations, including in Chicago Union Station, as well as in infrastructure along the busy Northeast Corridor (NEC), where the majority of Amtrak-owned assets are located. The NEC carries 260 million intercity and commuter customers each year and growing. However, demand for passenger rail service continues to outpace investment, resulting in a backlog of more than $38 billion of deferred capital investments that risks future service expansion and reliability.

“The NEC is a central artery for the greater Northeast, which generates 20 percent of U.S. gross domestic product and is one of the country’s principle economic engines,” said Amtrak co-CEO Wick Moorman. “These major projects are critical to keeping people, the economy and the nation moving forward.”
Amtrak and its state and federal partners have started the planning and regulatory reviews required for these complex, multi-year projects. Once funding is identified and obtained, Amtrak and its partners are ready to finalize design and begin construction for the following critical investments:

  • Hudson Tunnel Project (New York – New Jersey): Construction of a new Hudson River rail tunnel serving New York Penn Station will provide greater operational flexibility and infrastructure resiliency, following damage from Superstorm Sandy.
  • Portal North Bridge Project (New Jersey): Replacement of the century-old Portal Bridge with a new high-level, fixed-span bridge will result in faster trip times and greater reliability as well as eliminate the need to open for maritime traffic.
  • Major Stations Development (Northeast and Chicago): Leveraging public-private partnerships and underutilized land and air rights to transform 50+-year-old facilities into vibrant commercial transportation hubs.
  • Susquehanna River Bridge Project (Maryland): Replacement of existing two-track bridge with two new high-level bridges with a total of four tracks, allowing for increased speeds and eliminating the need to open for maritime traffic.
  • Baltimore & Potomac (B&P) Tunnel Project (Maryland): Replacement of the Civil War-era, 30 mph bottleneck with a four-tube tunnel that allows for more reliable and more frequent service.

Czech Republic: Roofing of Prague Main Station has been reconstructed

Správa železniční dopravní cesty has completed an extensive reconstruction of the roofing at Praha hlavní nádraží (Prague Main Station) which is one of the most important railway junctions in the Czech Republic. Besides repairing a historical monument, the main project’s objective was also increasing safety and comfort for passengers.

The steel two-aisled hall is an integral part of the Prague main station building complex listed as a monument under protection. Its arch construction extends over platforms No 1 - 4. Works included reconstruction of the hall dewatering, reconstruction and completion of footbridges including the railing, new fenestration of skylights, side walls and hall fronts as well as the roofing of Fanta Building. Anti-corrosion protection of the bearing construction was renewed, roof cladding was replaced by a new one, joints were scrutinised and damaged rivets were replaced.
The project was implemented in several phases in various parts of the hall. The architectonical design was elaborated based on documents resulting from the previous project named “Modernisation of Praha-hlavní nádraží, Western Part, Part 2, Platforms I-IV. The basic idea was preparing a modern single concept that would provide a common architectonical shape to the whole spacious area of the Prague main station.

”As far as organisation is concerned, the most difficult was coordinating all construction works with maintaining operation of the railway station for the whole time of reconstruction. I believe that passengers will forgive us a temporary discomfort as the result is worth it. Thanks to the project’s implementation, the Prague main station building acquired a dignified and representative shape. We were also able to provide higher safety and comfort for passengers“, said Mr Mojmír Nejezchleb, Deputy Director General of SŽDC for Infrastructure Modernisation.

The supplier of the construction designated as Reconstruction of hall roofing of Station Praha-Hlavní nádraží, Phase II were the companies Metrostav and PROMINECON CZ. This is a phased project while Phase I was co-financed from Operational Programme Transport (OPT) within the programme period 2007-2013 and Phase II was approved for co-financing from OPT within the programme period 2014-2020.

Total investment costs of Phase I amounted to CZK 304,093,823 (VAT excluded). The planned EU contribution from the Cohesion Fund for Phase I amounted to CZK 166,229,716. Total investment costs of Phase II equalled CZK 386,150,942 (VAT excluded). The planned EU contribution from the Cohesion Fund for Phase II amounted to CZK 261,920,823.

Total investment costs for both phases amounted to CZK 690 244 765 (VAT excluded). The planned EU contribution from the Cohesion Fund for both phases amounted up to CZK 428,150,539. National financing of both phases was provided by the State Fund for Transport Infrastructure.

Kazakhstan: Information service navigation is launched at “Nurly Zhol” railway station

The “Nurly Zhol” railway complex became the first transportation hub in Kazakhstan, the phased plans of which appeared on the maps of the city information service - 2GIS.

Now passengers can navigate the station using smartphones and tablets with the application 2GIS. Detailed plans for all six floors of the railway station complex became available to the users of the service: from ticket offices, passages to the first-aid post, mother and child rooms, ATMs to the exit to the platform.
In addition, the map identifies about 60 catering organizations, shops, taxi services, terminals, hotels, pharmacies, indicating the mode of operation, feedback from visitors and other useful information. For the convenience of passengers, all objects are marked with easily identifiable icons.

"To ensure that all the necessary information is at hand, in the mobile application 2GIS added floor plans with an indication of all the organizations in it. The application is especially relevant, given that the railway station “Nurly Zhol” is the largest transport hub in the republic. The service is convenient for passengers, especially those who found themselves in Astana for the first time," said Nurlan Amanzholov, deputy station director.

According to Ainur Nurgalieva, deputy director of 2GIS Astana, the maps of the new station floors are available in mobile versions of the service for Android, iOS, Windows and the online version of the 2GIS. All information is available without using the Internet.

Detailed plans for the floors of the railway station complex “Nurly Zhol” were developed jointly with the company “2GIS Astana”.

"The “Floors” service is a layout for floors and navigation on large objects, for example shopping centres, in a mobile application that makes it easier to find the right place," said A. Nurgalieva.

As N. Amanzholov noted, the internal navigation of the station will significantly improve the quality of passenger service, provide the proper service for all visitors to the transport hub.
