Hi!

This is a bit offtopic but not too much, I've been a bit nostalgic tonight and I've remembered a song of 1997 that want to share with you.

It's by Undrop, a Spanish-Swedish group and in the videoclip (filmed in Spain) you can see some old commuter trains, rail tracks and the Atocha station.



Enjoy it!

CAF products are usually far superior to Talgo's ones: they have seats near windows...

This is a secondary aspect of a "good" train, IMO. Not an essential thing.

if you are too stupid to accept that some people may feel claustrophobic feeling the movement but without seeing something passing by is not my fault

From my point of view... it is a design problem and should be very easy to improve in the design task of the project (not later).

It is so easy that one seat (in fact two seats) = one screen.

A lot of trains and buses are designed independently inside and outside and you can have a seat with no screen... or a little one (the screen is in the middle of two seats).

Very easy solution when design. Impossible to improve later.

CAF is more focused on metro and tram, but otherwise they made any kind of train...

type of train... each one has its preferences.

The recent line C5 of the commuter train service in Seville.

Here is a Civia S-465 EMU stopping at the Camas station, bound for Benacazon:



Here another one entering Benacazon station, end of the C5 line.

Death man button.

A common device in trains that require the driver to perform a set (usually 2 or 3) of actions (pushing a button, releasing a spring) that guarantees a driver is in the cabin in full awareness, throwing automatic braking otherwise. It allows single-man cabin operations.

I think it´s the buzzer for the automatic brake system in case the driver doesn´t operate the controls for a longer period of time..
