Introduction

This list does not represent the service for any specific timetable period. However, the service pattern in Denmark does not vary much if at all between timetable periods. Standard abbreviations are explained in General Information.

Obscure services

Lemvig – Lemvig Havn

(Vemb-Lemvig-Thyborøn Jernbane: Midtjyske Jernbaner) (1A2, not shown) DK1

The line into the main station continues as a steeply-graded branch to the harbour, with a reversal en route. Although there is no platform at the harbour, the train merely stopping at a location beyond which the track has been tarred over, boarding and alighting is permitted here. Services normally operate on Mondays to Fridays during July and early August, offering connections between VLTJ Vemb - Thyborøn rail services and an excursion vessel at the harbour.

The VLTJ website gives details of these “Bjergbanen” during their operating period.

Note: As the Struer Jernbaneklub's operating permit has expired, there will be no “Bjergbanen” services in 2012.

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

Hundested – Hundested Havn

(Frederiksværkbanen: Lokalbanen A/S) (4A1, not shown) DK2

Some but not all Frederiksværkbanen train services continue approximately 0.5 km to the Havn station, connecting with an hourly vehicle passenger ferry to Rørvig. Neither the DSB nor Lokalbanen Journey Planners acknowledge this service but advise a walk or a connecting bus from Hundested. However, train details are on the Frederiksværkbanen [select "Køreplan"] or the Ferry Company's timetables. Note that there are seasonal variations

Fredericia avoiding line: Middelfart (Snoghøj) – Taulov

(6B2) DK3

This east to west curve between the main line from København and routes to Esbjerg and the German frontier, is used by overnight international passenger trains and internal IC or IC-Lyn trains between København and the Esbjerg and Sønderborg lines, not calling at Fredericia.

Valby avoiding line: København H - Ny Ellebjerg - Høje Taastrup (Hvidovre Fjern)

(9A2 not shown) DK4

This connection comprises the initial phase of a future line between København and Ringsted, and part of the freight bypass Kalvebod - Hvidovre Fjern. It may be used by mainline trains between København H and Høje Taastrup that do not call in Valby.

In the 2012/2013 timetable, the following trains are scheduled to use this line:

  • All EuroCity to and from Hamburg / Berlin:
EC/ICE hh:44 København H - Høje Taastrup - Hamburg
EC/ICE Hamburg - hh:59 Høje Taastrup - København H
  • "Fast" regional trains to and from Nykøbing Falster/ Rødby Færge that run roughly in the pattern of the EuroCity trains in the hours where there is no EuroCity service:
SuX Re hh:42 København H - Høje Taastrup - Nykøbing F
SuX Re Nykøbing F - hh:59 Høje Taastrup - København H
  • All InterCityLyn towards København, except ones that call in Valby and also except L208 (arriving 08:41). Note: InterCityLyn from København are routed via Valby.
  • Other miscellaneous trains, none of which call at Høje Taastrup, and which will not be listed here.

Note that local tickets between København H and Høje Taastrup are valid on EuroCity but not on InterCityLyn.

Other sparse services

None.
