Unanimous compliments for our booth at InnoTrans 2018

Besides being a perfect place to present trenissimo and our most recent work, our booth has been unanimously appreciated! A great result for a booth constructed with our hands! Not only the 1936-built carpenter table and the old tools hanging on the wall, also our tools received a great attention. trenissimo was one of the 146 world premieres of the fair: its simulation speed and the flexible user interface were the most appreciated characteristics.

InnoTrans 2018

InnoTrans is the leading international trade fair for transport technology and takes places every two years in Berlin. The prefect location to introduce our completely new simulation tool trenissimo, designed to make railway simulation more intuitive, accurate, and effective. Intuitive thanks to a smart, comfortable, state-of-the-art user interface. Accurate thanks to its ability to fully consider everyday variations in railway operations. Effective thanks to its integration in the TRENO suite, which significantly reduces the time needed to setup and perform railway planning and simulation.

The Pilatus Railway

Pilatus (also often referred to Mount Pilatus) is a mountain massif overlooking Lucerne in Central Switzerland. It is composed of several peaks, of which the highest (2,128 m) is named Tomlishorn and is located about 1.3 km (0.81 mi) to the southeast of the top cable car and cog railway station. The two peaks right next to the stations are called Esel (Donkey, 2,118 m), which lies just east over the railway station, the one on the west side is called Oberhaupt (Head-Leader, 2,105 m).

NORWAY - A Time-Lapse Adventure

This is a time-lapse video made by Morten Rustad, resulting from a 15,000 km long road trip and tens of thousands of images taken along the way over the last 5 months. The journey has covered all of Norway’s 19 counties, from the far south to the Russian border in the Northeast.

Dovre Line

The Dovre Line (Norwegian: Dovrebanen) is the name of a Norwegian railway line with three slightly different lines which all lead to the historic city of Trondheim.

The section south of Eidsvoll was until 1998 Norway’s first public railway, Hovedbanen, from 1854, 68 km long. The present line between Oslo and Eidsvoll is the 4 km shorter Gardermoen Line, the only high-speed line in the country. Hovedbanen is still in service for freight trains (and local commuters to Dal), but is not considered as a part of Dovre Line. The entire line from Oslo to Trondheim is 548 km today. It is a more heavily traveled line than the older Røros Line and electrification was completed 1 November 1970.[2] Between 1935 and 1958, the Dovre Line was served by some of Norway’s largest steam locomotives, the 2-8-4 NSB Class 49 “Dovregubben” (“Dovre Giant”).

Compared to the Røros Line, the Dovre Line takes a more westerly course running through the town of Lillehammer and over the mountainous stretches of Dovre, before merging with the Røros Line again at Støren. There is one branch line, the Rauma Line which leaves the Dovre Line at Dombås.

To avoid the fairly regular river flooding on the railway line along the river Gaula, the Gulfoss Tunnel was completed in 1918 in the Hovin area of Melhus in what is now Trøndelag county.
