Here is one of Auckland's trains on fire. Finally they managed to catch one of these monsters on fire (not hard they burst into flames quite often).

I can't see a New Zealand specific thread, so the video below will have to go here:-

No NZ thread here because there is very little rail traffic in New Zealand and there are currently no real plans to expand interurban services (of which there are only three in the country and they are only "once a day tourist trains").

The Wellington clip you showed is part of the Wellington suburban system - a system that should definitely have a thread in the "Urban Transportation" sub-forum as the Wellington train network is probably the best in this country as the Auckland one, whilst improving, is rather pathetic still (as highlighted in my video from 2008 above you in this thread which shows one of the trains that serves Auckland on fire).

MISC | Train Cabin Videos

I didn't found a thread about this so here you go.
I'll start with a vid from my own country.

Mol-Hasselt. A video filmed in a less densly populated area in dieseltrain because the rail overthere have no powerlines. When driving near to Hasselt the rails suddenly have powerlines...

Merged with regular railway videos to keep the number of threads down. Makes it easier to follow topics.

A journey I've done a few times on the same train the uploader has done when getting from Manchester Piccadilly to get to South Wales (although he gets off at Crewe)

The RBBX circus train is an amazing part of Americana. Their show is so BIG that the only cost-effective way of transporting it all is by rail.

Oh yea, they have two different shows (the 'red unit' and the 'blue unit') touring the USA every year and the other one is just as big.

The train in that clip is the red train.

Two Railcab rides:-




Sadly muted



I've also recently watched the 3 hour Nurnberg - Chemitz video and the Leipzig - Berlin some might see on the right hand side as well.

Don't miss this one!

Just found probably the greatest railway vid ever. Or well, it's rather a movie. Some real atmospheric scenes from Romanian contryside, night scenes from Croatia, etc... pure awesomeness.

Description

A week-long tour through southeastern Europe, first to Romania to visit the rustic Malaxa railcars and Sulzer diesels as well as former SNCF "Caravelles" around Arad and Timisoara, then moving on via Budapest to Croatia for the Zadar line and its GM freight, more GM action on the northern Lika line and finally in the flatlands near Koprivnica.


I don't dare to embed it from Youtube, so click here and enjoy it full screen.
