Worst train in Spain the Diurno, what? the carriages, service..?
Why? Italy has a reputation of designing good-looking stuff. But that train is something else. The designer must have been drunk or something.

The Fyra 250V was designed by Pininfarina. He also designed cars for Ferrari, Alfa Romeo and Fiat.

and Fiat Multipla

Pininfarina may a very good designer, but sometimes it goes awfully wrong (as for all designers actually).

From what i've heard, they based the exterieur from the "hondekop" trains.
The serie mat 57 was used for the service Amsterdam-Brussels between 1957 till 1986.



Ironically the last remaining mat 57 is in the same shape as the V250 rusting and falling appart.

Romania's worse train

Is the personal/regional train type. Some still consist of old East German cars including:



And a nice interior

Equally bad, though new, are the Siemens Desiro trains. Much like the Talent, the Desiro is ok for trips of maximum 60 minutes. Anything above makes their horror-chairs simply awful. Also, and again like the Talent and Flirt, in winter the large doors make the cold easily get in and heating is poor.

The sucky interiors of the Desiro:

I have a photo somewhere of me dangling out the open door of one of these while it was moving. Good memories of a summer of sun, recklessness and an interail pass.

Of course since all the other trains are excelent nowadays the comparison level is not the same anymore.


all old trains have already been removed from service all across the country.
