While Denmark's first metro in Copenhagen is known by many enthusiasts, many don't realize that there are several traction opportunities in this well-endowed state. There is also a short subway tunnel for the Danish State Railways lines that run under the city center, with an underground station at Nørreport, where you can catch the metro. Some of the older cars remarkably resemble the old independent lines in New York. Many private railway firms exist, running private "Lokalbanen", including the Y-Tog, referred to by Danish railfans as the "Lynette", and the international traction railway from Flensberg to Padborg.

Honorable mention goes out to the towns of
Odense, Aarhus, and Copenhagen, where light rail lines are in the early planning stages.

Whether you're
having a Danish or riding in one, remember that there's lots to explore in Old Zealand.
