Parallel running supposedly lasts only several hundred feet, chance encounter outrageously rare:

I agree, plus the owners definitely know how to take care of this set of theirs ... I'll always be fond of models of that American diesel like theirs

Hi guys, the next video is from Mendoza city, which is now testing a new light rail system with ex-San diego´s Siemens metros. IT will run through the city to the outskirts, probably to the airport(second phase). The province is well known for its red wines especially Malbec.
Just an intro, now the video:

Great vid. I guess it's from Kunshan, the same station the two trains are racing in the other vid?

Any more HSR races hmmwv?

This is a video I took of the Chicago CTA. It is interesting to see the Red, Purple, and Brown line trains interacting with each other!

Interesting Jacket on the person you see with the headphones in the first section of your video!

Also, at 1:47 in your rear view ride, you'll see a man emerge from behind the train, carrying a red flag, wearing a high-viz vest (so I assume he's a CTA employee). What's his job?
