The 1. of june it was 15 years ago the bridge over Storebaelt in little Denmark opened. A 17 km bridge/tunnel (link to google maps) that changed the trafic in many ways for Skandinavia.

Today German electric trains drive directly thorough Denmark tovards Sweden with cargo using a type BR 185 all the way.

Before that there were 3 passengerferries and one for cargo (Asa Thor).

Here i have postet 3 videoclips of how things were in 1997. And yes it was SLOW. The trip took one hour with the boat (today it takes 10 minutes). So please be patient - the clips are long....

There is nothing left anymore. The 3 passengerferries are still in operation somewhere else, but Asa Thor died on a beach in India.
I hope you enjoy these railway videos.
