The best in Denmark:

The litra ER (or known publically in Denmark as the "Interregional, IR4" train):


The second-best, is probably the MG (IC4):


However, one could argue that the best trainset ever in Denmark is the...... MR!

(Reason being is that it never breaks down, and even if it does recieve a major fault that would otherwise have broken down other trains, this train will still soldier on)

The Netherlands

The best trains of the Netherlands in my point of view...

NS Intercity 'Koploper' (headrunner) a real classicer now. In service since the '70.
It connects all the medium and larger cities.


NS Interregio in service since the '90.
It connects all medium and larger cities at long distance.




Upperlevel 2nd class (bleu)


Lowerlevel 1st class (red)


NS Sprinter Commuter train
(Randstad metropolitan area|Amsterdam|Rotterdam|The Hague|Utrecht)



NS HiSpeed ICE (Amsterdam CS - Frankfürt Hbh)


-----------------------------------------------------

Best local trains

Connexxion Protos Vallei Lijn|Valley Line


Arriva Spurt


NS Buffel


Syntus Lint


Conexxion Lint


The best local train in the Netherlands. I like the Talent!
(Left NS Koploper, Right DB Talent)

That question makes no sense. Which UIC gauge?

(It would also help if Australian railways were built to UIC specifications, which they most certainly are not.)

The Tilt Train in Queensland is proberbly the best, although Australia has one of the world's worst intercity rail systems. There are two versions of this train, one diesel and one electric. The electric one travels between Brisbane and Rockhampton twice per day, and the diesel one travels from Brisbane to Cairns once per day.

Amazing... but why all the train attendants seem to be male? That would kinda ruin the whole experience. Pretty and cute female crew would make it much better
