There was one line, from Odder to Grenaa, with 33 stations. This traffic concept started in 2012, when the traffic on the two local railways Odderbanen and Grenaabanen was combined into one line, with new rolling stock. The rolling stock was Siemens Desiro diesel multiple units.
The line closed in August 2016 for electrification and conversion to light rail service.
From 2017 both railways will be defined as light rail, and be equipped with electric power supply. Also, a new city tramway has been built in central Aarhus. New trams will be used for this. This concept is called Aarhus Letbane (Aarhus light rail).
