Trains in Denmark

The European country of Denmark has an efficient rail transport system, with its railway lines covering about 1636 miles (2633 kilometers). Some of the lines in the country are electrified to facilitate the fast transportation of both travellers and cargo. The electrified lines include the Lunderskov-Esbjerg line, and the Helsingør-Copenhagen-Padborg mainline, which travellers will find at the German border. 

The Copenhagen to Fredericia/Taulov Line is one of the major train routes in Denmark. The railway line is about 140 miles (225 kilometers), and it transports passengers and cargo from Copenhagen to the Jutland peninsula via Funen. Since the railway line has a connection to Copenhagen, it makes transfers to the popular S-train network, the Oresund Railway, and the Coast Line. 

Zealand's Lille Syd is a line that connects the towns of Næstved and Roskilde through Køge. Danish State Railways (DSB) operates this line. The railway line section between Køge and Næstved is electrified. The Copenhagen-Ringsted route started operating in June 2019. 

Denmark also has the Øresund Line, whose routes are between Copenhagen and Malmö, Sweden's third-largest city.

In Sweden, Transdev operates this line while DSB manages the Danish counterpart.
