MISC | Trains you commute with (Photos)

Show the type of train you use the most in your own country...e.g. commuting to work etc

But if you don't commute by train, just one you travel on the most in general...

Class 323 run by Northern rail, Stoke on Trent-Piccadilly Line

MISC | Show the train you commute on regularly (photo thread)

Show the train you commute on regularly

That is, if you take the train to work. Not including subways or light rail...

For me its the Class 323



Prestbury - Manchester Piccadilly commuter route in about 30mins. Top speed is 90Mph although due to the stations being close together it doesn't run much over 60Mph unless it skips stops like on the early morning. The acceleration is very fast, the only thing is they units run by Northern Rail (Show above) do need an internal refurbishment!

When in the UK, I use SWT 450 Desiro trains the most:

In Australia, I use the QR Electric Tilt Train the most, except I wouldn't really call it a commute:

On my regular commuting route I use these double-deck trains (the original trains dating from the 90s, with a slightly updated version being built in the last couple of years), mostly used on busy intercity routes in the Netherlands. Note that the term 'intercity' is used for far shorter distances than in many other European countries, due to the small size of the country. Most Intercity trains are actually more like RegionalExpress in Germany. These double deck trains are okay, but nothing spectacular.



Interior in the first generation sets (ugly!)


Interior in the second generation sets (okay)


Interior in the third generation sets (much better)


Once a week I commute to the north of the Netherlands for a project I am doing there; then I travel with Koploper trains (built in the 80s, recently renovated) These trains are much more comfortable, with nice seats, armrests between the seats, large fold-down tables between the coach-style seats, plenty of legroom and free wifi internet. Their ride quality is also much better.
