    Orient-Express 2: Istanbul Sirkeci - Haydarpasa (50 p.)

    Another great series of photos. I loved Istanbul and the trams. Very interesting city. Thanks.

    Orient-Express 1: 21st Century (50 p.)

    Thanks for posting those great photos. I especially like the one at Gramatneusiedl station. It's too bad you get such little response in this forum. Seems that most members have their heads in the sand when it comes to railways in other countries.

    Tokyo's Colorful Trains

    It is surprising the lack of response Japanese trains receive on this forum. In my biased opinion, they are much more varied than freight trains.

    Weather in May East of Vienna 1/2 (50 p.)

    Since you mentioned them, we might like to see them.

    Alco RSD-16

    Ah, now I see some passenger trains. Very colorful. Are they all locomotive hauled or are there any DMUs?

    Argentain freight trains pictures.

    Are there any passenger trains there?

    Weather in May East of Vienna 1/2 (50 p.)

    Very nice photos, but since the object is the trains, they are so small in many of the photos that we can't see what they look like. Also, you mentioned crowds of passengers, but I couldn't see any.

    [GER]A historical tram weekend in Halberstadt(18pic.)

    Thank you for the photos of Halberstadt. It looks like a quiet, peaceful place. The number 4 and 168 trams look very nice. Do you have a better photo of the crossing in the last photo? It looks very unusual.

    Changing of the Guard

    In Tokyo, when a train is about to enter a subway, it is almost a formal ceremony as the drivers exchange salutes. Here, at Wacoshi, a Yurakucho subway train is about to enter the subway. The Tobu Railway driver is exiting the cab and receives a salute from the waiting Tokyo Metro driver.

    Very interesting article. Let's hope they follow through with that project.

    Some photos of my railfanning around the East Bay 2012

    Wow! Clean locos. We don't see clean ones very often up here in Portland. :)

    Unique Rail Pass

    In all my years living there and many trips back, I've never even thought of climbing it. I guess there are do-ers and see-ers. :)

    Unique Rail Pass

    This is one of the two most unusual and spectacular transport trips in Japan. Rail fans visiting Japan should be sure to buy an Odakyu Railway's "Hakone Free Pass". Not free, but certainly a bargain. It is good for two days with unlimited riding on seven types of transport, including a...
