Introduction

This list is based on the timetable dated from 9 December 2018. Standard abbreviations are explained in General Information. Map references for each route entry are given in parentheses ( ). References prefixed "ERA" refer to the European Railway Atlas Nordic Region, Regional Series 2016, by M.G.Ball.

Obscure services

Lemvig – Lemvig Havn

(Vemb-Lemvig-Thyborøn Jernbane: Midtjyske Jernbaner) (ERA 14A3, not shown) DK19/1

The line into Lemvig station continues as a steeply-graded branch to the harbour, with a reversal en route. A tourist service with preserved railbuses operated in the summer between the main station and a quayside platform. However the line needs renovation before it can be used for passenger traffic. The BjergBanen website gives no indication at present if the line will operate in 2019 but a 03 July 2019 posting on the BjergBanen Facebook page states that due to condition of track (many sleepers requiring replacement) no trains will run in 2019.

Other seasonal services over freight lines are to be found in Danske Veterantog [site in Danish] each year.

Hundested – Hundested Havn

(Frederiksværkbanen: Lokalbanen A/S) (ERA 15B5, not shown) DK19/2

Some (but not all) Frederiksværkbanen train services continue approximately 0.5 km to the Hundested Havn station, connecting with an hourly vehicle passenger ferry to Rørvig. The Rejseplanen journey planner contains this service but, for unknown reasons, never offers it when connecting with the ferry, and instead advises a walk from Hundested. The trains can, however, be found by explicitly selecting "Hundested Havn st." or "Hundested Havn (færge)" as the origin or destination. Train times can also be found on the ferry company's timetables. Note that there are seasonal variations.

Fredericia avoiding line: Middelfart (Snoghøj) – Taulov

4,5 (ERA 14B2) DK19/3

This east to west curve between the main line from København and routes to Esbjerg and the German frontier, is used by trains between København/Odense and Esbjerg/Kolding not calling at Fredericia

Valby avoiding line: Dybbølsbro – Ny Ellebjerg – Høje Taastrup (Hvidovre Fjern)

(ERA 15C1) DK19/4

This connection consists of the initial phase of the high speed line between København and Ringsted, and part of the Kalvebod – Hvidovre Fjern freight bypass. Click on the thumbnail for a full size map but note the western junction splits either side of a flyover on the line towards København H via Valby.

Although it was used in the 2016/17 timetable, nothing appears to be booked to use it in the current timetable. The compilers would appreciate any information on its use.

København Østerport - Lersøen (- Bispebjerg)

(ERA 15C2, not shown) DK19/5

This freight line diverges east from the København H - Helsingor main line, dives under it at Nordhavn and runs parallel to the passenger tracks through Svanemollen and Ryparken before joining the Hellerup - Ny Ellebjerg S-Tog line north of Bispebjerg station.

Nordhavn.png


This line has been used by the “Rundt om husene” (round the houses) steam specials run by Nordsjællands Jernbaneklub, which do an anti-clockwise circuit starting and finishing in København H, calling at Østerport, Nørrebro and Flintholm. No dates of operation are available yet for 2019. See their Rundt om husene med Veterantoget page for information.

København S-Tog

[Leaflets] (ERA 15C1, not shown) DK19/6

There are numerous route splits on various lines, some of which are substantial. They are grouped together from north to south to assist travellers wanting complete track coverage:-

  • [Klampenbourg] - Charlottenlund – Hellerup: The southbound line makes a large separate loop
  • [Hillerød] – Gentofte – Hellerup: The east- and westbound lines take separate routes
  • [Farum] – Ryparken – Svanemøllen: The line towards Farum is a diveunder
  • The east- and westbound lines from Kobenhavn H are separated by substantial turnback/stabling sidings
  • The line towards Kobenhavn H from Carlsberg dives under the Køge line
  • The line from Valby towards Høje Tastrup dives under the Frederikssund line
  • Rødovre is an unusual split level station; the line towards Høje Tastrup at least 10 metres higher than the line in the opposite direction
  • The track towards Høje Tastrup from the penultimate station of Tastrup dives under an access line to a sizeable S-Tog Depot
  • On the Køge line the south- and northbound tracks at Hundige are separated by an S-Tog Depot

The northbound DSB line to Helsingør takes a separate route to the east of Nordhavn Depot
