Railways

Hi Guys! Since I'm quite a railway fan, - and I know there are plenty of us here on SSC - I would like to see and read more of the Romanian railway system. In the future please feel free to post valuable infos, photos, news, and anything concerning the railway infrastructure transportation of Romania!

In the name of friendship: A Hungarian and a Romanian train meeting somewhere in Romania!



This is the Hungarian one:



Beautiful isnt she...? I just love trains...

Nice...hope they are not on the same track...

As far as I know, there isn't much investment in the railway system at the moment...They've been trying for years to finish a Bucharest-Brasov high-speed track, but I'm not sure what the current status is.

So what, Hungarians in Romania are not "oppressed" and "trapped" anymore?!?

BTW, everybody knows that the locomotive was bearing the Greater Hungary sign but nobody really cared.

It's something normal (and even very good for Romania) that the largest Catholic gathering happens on a yearly basis in a Romania. It's beautiful stuff and both Romanians and Hungarians and other people can celebrate. Romania is nothing special than a normal country.

The train - as you can see - is carrying the present day Hungarian bearing on the nose, where the red star used to be...

Check the actual Hungarian bearing on Wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:C...of_Hungary.svg

What does everyone know Le Clerk? No one was insulting Romania... Why are you so paranoid?
