This page is one of a series showing images from a 10 night 'Christmas Markets' cruise from Southampton in December 2012.

We were dues to leave Amsterdam at 22:00hrs on the 6th December. We were still at the Amsterdam Cruise Terminal berth when we awoke on 7th - the Amsterdam pilots again considered it to be too windy to pass Centraal Station or to enter the Ijmuiden locks. We left around lunch time and left the lock around 15:00. We had been scheduled to arrive in Copenhagen at 8am on the 8th December, but leaving 14 hours late meant that instead we had a day at sea in sunny but freezing conditions, doing over 22 knots.

We overtook various freighters and the Norröna of Smyril Line, arriving at Copenhagen at around 16:00hrs, losing one of our two days in that port.

Railways

Lokalbanen

Lokalbanen A/S ('Local Railway', abbreviated LB) is a Danish company responsible for train operation and related passenger services on various railways around Copenhagen. Owned by the Greater Copenhagen Authority (HUR), Lokalbanen was established in 2001 following HUR's acquisition of the share of the railway lines previously owned by the Danish state. The company headquarters are located in Hillerød; the company has offices in various stations on the lines it operates.

Lokalbanen operates on the lines formerly controlled by Frederiksværkbanen (HFHJ), Gribskovbanen (GDS), Hornbækbanen (HHGB) and Nærumbanen (LNJ), from which it took over operation in May 2002. All companies were subsequently closed. Ownership of the trains and infrastructure from the companies is now the responsibility of Hovedstadens Lokalbaner (HL), from which Lokalbanen leases its trains; all HL lines have so far been run by LB, with the exception of the Lille Nord line run by DSB S-tog on behalf of HUR.

The lines in the foreground are for Frederiksværk trains, but none arrived on my brief visit - I presume it uses LINTs

Lokalbanen - Nærumbanen (LNJ)

The Nærumbanen runs from Jægersborg, adjacent to the S-Tog station of DSB, to Nærum. A frequent service is provided by two lightweight tram/train DMUs along this short single line branch with a passing place at Fuglevad. The complete journey takes just 13mins with five intermediate request stops - the trains have tram-style bell pushes to stop the train.
