Super Train Railway Dresden-Rome

Post by RickBamboo » 10 Jan 2022 17:56

Hi there,

Today in the german BILD Newspaper was a short story with pic, that Hitler had wanted a kind of superfast Train that would travel from Dresden to Rome in 7 or 8 hours. I could not find specific info on this one.
Does somebody know about that project that seems to never have been started?

I'm wondering, why Dresden and not Berlin, as Berlin-Rome, at least to me as Noob makes much more sence ...

I try to attache that pic ...

Thanks for your infos,
Rick

Discussed earlier on this Forum, with some nice drawings:
Wide gauge railway planned for Europe
Article is about so called: Nord-Süd Paralleltrasse: Berlin - Dresden - Aussig - Prag - Iglau - Znaim - Wien (- Triest - Rom)

and here for freight railroads in the East: posts #519 - #522

Rick,

"Breitspurbahn" would be the best possible german designation to search for:

Breitspurbahn (Nationalsozialismus) https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breitspur ... zialismus)
