The Danish rail company has opened a new, dedicated high-speed rail link between Copenhagen and Ringsted. The 64-km (40-mi) segment is used by trains going to Denmark’s mainland area and to Redby for the ferry connection to Germany. Although capable of accommodating 250-kph (156 mph) speeds, Denmark does not yet have any high-speed trains, and the new line will start out with conventional equipment at around 200 kph.
