It's the Sm3 class Pendolino. It's the fastest and has the best looking interior. (The tickets are overpriced. )

I seriously doubt there is any rail track in Bosnia that allows speeds of 160 kph.

Stadler FLIRTs are nice train-sets.

Good choice for Bosnia :-)

I'm not British, but I'm currently living and studying in the UK and my home country(Bahrain) has no real rail system, so I'll be referring to UK trains.

I like the HST...


...And the Class 360 Desiro

I also like the Class 90 and similar 91

And lastly(and probably most controversially!) the Pendolino:

The MK3s with the Class 90 look great!

I used to hate the 390s when they first came out, but now I really like em. Not too sure what caused the change, I still hate the voyagers tho

In my every time more south-american country, trains are getting so so bad, that there isn't even a "best train"... They all suck!
