Germans, by the way, invented once a kind of a bus which could be both a rail and a road vehicle.

Schi-Stra-Bus:



We had also one more very weird concept from 1995: http://ssb.strefa.pl/mitor/mitor.html

Two Żuks (Żuk - a Polish van, popular in those times) connected by backs and put on the rails. It was a prototype created in the Cracow University of Technology.



But this thing has never been sold commercially, it was only a prototype.

But a draisine is something different than a passenger train.

Apart from the modern stuff you can see on the third page of this thread, we also have some more old-fashioned stuff to show off in The Netherlands:



This is the NS20, better known as the camel and is built in 1954. It once in a while still leaves the Dutch railway museum to be used for the highest ranks of NS-personnel, which it always did with the exception of a period in the 1990s and 2000s and was also used for inspections in the past. The name camel derives from the two panoramic domes atop of the diesel railbus.



Sometimes seen at railyards in e.g Amsterdam is the TEE DMU that was used during the 1950s-1970s for international trains which were used between the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland. They went to Canada in 1977 after their retirement, where they were used until the 1990s as Northlander in blue-yellow colours (very familiar to modern NS trains).

This tejas is diesel, konkan is unelectrified. Though it's not high speed (top speed is 120 km/h), and i personally don't think it's luxury either, similar seats as on shatabdi, and while some things are better, those would be necessary improvements and not luxury as such.

I think dutch trains used to all have a certain style. A round "nose" and 3 headlights.

I guess now all european trains are made by the same 3 companies and all look the same, but whatever. UK trains are still unique because of the different loading gauge and safety regulations I think.
