Pay attention when crossing tracks

Jan 01, 2014
From wire reports, TALLINN

Starting Jan. 1, all Estonian passenger train traffic will take place with new Stadler FLIRT type trains which require more caution and attention, reports Delfi. The new trains are faster, quieter and look different than current ones, thus the customary traffic environment will change for people who travel by train, and for pedestrians crossing the railways, and for drivers.

The maximum speed of the trains won't change, but people have to keep in mind that the acceleration of the new trains is much better and crossing the railway in front of a train is thus very dangerous.

The train timetables will also be busier, meaning railway crossings will be in use more.

The Estonian government decided in June that the new 18 electric trains and around 20 diesel engine trains from Stadler Bussnang AG that the state bought will be used only by the state-owned electric commuter train operator Elektriraudtee. Currently the state-owned Elektriraudtee operates electric railway lines and the privately-owned Edelaraudtee operates diesel engine operated intercity lines.
