Here is the old and the new Danish intercity trains (IC3 and IC4, respectively). In truth, while the new train is by far the prettiest, the old one works, to this date far better.

(I post them as links rather than imbed them because the pics are enormous.) I also note that the Danes are apparently less fond of bright colours than the Brits.

In Germany there are EMUs as well as loco hauled (and pushed) trains in service. The first ones are hard to distinguish from proper high speed trains and trade wrongly under the ICE brand.

i would consider that ICT as HSR, not only because its about 30kmh faster then normal IC`s but mainly because it has ICE-style pricing (=fu*king expensive..)

Just because DB charges high speed fares doesn't mean it is high speed at all. These trainsets are pretty similar to Virgin's Pendolinos. Not particularly fast and serve on winding railway lines.

Limited express trains of Japan

Limited express (Tokkyu) in Japan roughly corresponds with "intercity" in Europe. These are the currently operated limited express trains (obviously, excluding Shinkansen) that require special fares. Some private railway companies also operate limited express services that do not require special fares, often with normal looking commuter trains.
There are also other intercity-like services too, most notably "Special Rapid" service by JR West.

Normal IC:





3G IC (3rd generation)






Most IC trains have a frequency of 2 hours,except for some lines,which come every 4 hours,and 1 line comes every hour.

OFFTOPIC: sicne soemone considered the ICE-T and virgin pendolinos as "normal IC trains" I'll add the Portuguese Pendulinos to my list:

A "tipical" Intercity here looks like this ... it's almost a picture of the past since msot routes now are electrified:
- Diesel hauled at 120km/h (that's the top speed of these dreadfull CP1930 locomotives)




Nowadays most Intercity trains are hauled by electric locomotives

Until recently the main power came from class CP2600 (160km/h top speed):










Nowadays most Intercity trains are hauled at "up to 200km/h" by the CP5600 (top speed 220km/h)








The cream at the top of the Intercity network are of course the Alfa Pendular EMU's (top speed 220km/h)












Aditionally we have acouple of "international" trains who serve as Intercity trains ... in the picture we can see most of them:

- Talgo Lusitania stabled (Lisboa-Madrid night train)
- Sud Express passing by (Lisboa-Irun pulled by a CP2600)
- a Alfa Pendular stabled
- a couple of intercity coaches in the background

Here are a few pics from Amtraks's Silver Star train. This train goes from New York City to Miami on a daily basis. These were taken in November of 2009. These are all of Amtrak's Viewliner cars which are used on the East coast of the USA. Sorry I did not get any pics of the locomotive.

In the last thread, the first four photos are of regional trains, and the fifth picture is of a high-speed regional train. In the last two photos are two railway stations. Here it would be nice photos of Altaria, Arco, or Alvia services.
