Are all Iberian Trains mythical?

If you say Mythical I tend to think the old TEE services, the Flying Scotsman, The Orient Express...

The TEE (DB Class 602) certainly was one stunning train.

The Transalpin was also a pretty iconic train while operated with the marvelous ÖBB Class 4010

TEE DMUs look, for me, like glorified outdated products. By the time they were introduced, it was already clear that electric traction was the future of high-end rail travel, not supersized diesel locos.

But Multi-System loco's where unheard of, so the only option to make inter-system travel possible was by Diesel, that is the reason!


My suggestion:

The Mallard:


The famous Dutch Diesel III (mat.34), which revolutionized the dutch Railways.

At the time they were built, electrified lines were mostly found aound big
cities and in mountain areas, but there was almost no electrified line that
crossed a border yet.

And when they finally arrived, there was the problem of different
electrification systems that had to be linked together.

In those early days, multi-systems locomotives still were science-fiction,
so it was needed to build stations with commutable tracks and exchange
locos at the borders. Not very compatible with the TEE concept...

It's only when multi-systems locos arrived that electric TEEs could become
possible. But not many countries had a railway industry capable to build
such machines. France and Belgium did it, successfully, Germany failed,
Switzerland just had a small serie of EMUs, other countries did not even try.

And today, it has become a standard feature, but international trains are
slowly vanishing.
