When I was a child I have been there for holidays. I saw that crazy solution, train as a tram.

There are a couple of places in Switzerland with street running railways. Sometimes these are single track, which means that in one direction the trains run on the left.

Somehow in Switzerland this works. But even in Italy this is possible...

I hope they outlaw that aberration in Tirano. They should build a new functional small station right on the city's edge and tear down those tracks (since they are not connected to the rest of Italian network and the line to Sondrio anyway).

And again you demonstrate how fortunate the world is that your influence on transportation policy is non existent.

Tirano also has a Trenitalia station, and it is important that the RhB station adjacent to it is kept. The station of Tirano also sees quite a bit of transhipment of freight. This train once an hour really isn't a problem.

Trieste, Linea delle Rive

In my city the train used to cross smack across the central square some 70-80 years ago. There were level crossings for road traffic and the tram!

Rajdhani Defeated..!!! Express and Superfast Train Overtake August Kranti Rajdhani Express



19006 Okha/Veraval - Mumbai Central Saurashtra Mail, And 12956 Jaipur - Mumbai Central (Gangaur) Superfast Overtook August Kranti Rajdhani Express at Vangaon Railway Station

12954 August Kranti Rajdhani Express, Was Surprisingly Looped At Vangaon Railway Station. This Train was Running Late By 2Hrs 30 minutes, , And Many Other Mumbai Bound Trains were Also heavily Delayed Due to A Shunter Loco, which failed on UP mainline between Gholvad and Dahanu Road.

It was not Expected that, August Kranti Rajdhani Would have to face Siding Halt At Vangaon Railway Station. Initially, I Doubted that some Error in loco of Rajdhani would have landed the train in Loop Halt. But It wasn't any Loco fault.

Rajdhani Left Suddenly After these two Overtakes.
August Kranti Rajdhani Was Powered By GZB WAP7 30248 (Duronto Livery)
Saurashtra Mail Was Powered by BRC WAP5 30056
Gangaur Superfast Was powered By BRC WAP4E 22769

August Kranti Rajdhani Was Delayed by 2:30Hrs
Saurashtra Mail Was Delayed By 5:35Hrs
Gangaur Superfast was Delayed By 4:52Hrs

Majestic Crossing in The Thull Ghats..!! Howrah Mail Meets Kamakhya AC Express



12321 Howrah - Mumbai CST Mail (via Allahabad) Meets 12519/Mumbai LTT - Kamakhya AC Express in the Scenic Thull Ghats

I was on my way to New Jalpaiguri on-board 12519 Kamakhya AC Express Hauled By ET WAP4 22991 From LTT to Itarsi

Howrah Mumbai Mail was hauled by BRC WAP4 22210 and Supported by 3 KYN WAG5 Brakers. I was lucky enough to get this crossing on a majestic curve in open area, a slight change in meeting spot would have resulted the crossing inside a Tunnel

Regular Overtake at Unusual Spot..!! Mumbai Rajdhani Express Overtaking Garib Rath Express



12951 Mumbai Rajdhani Express Overtakes 12909 Bandra - . Nizamuddin Garib Rath Express at Vangaon Railway Station, which usually is a scene at Kelve Road Railway station.

Usually, 59037 Virar - Surat Shuttle is inside the loop of Vangaon Railway Station to get cvertaken by Rajdhani, but due to Delay of Surat Shuttle and a slight delay of Rajdhani Express, Garib Rath made it upto Vangaon Rather than Kelve Road.

It was a surprise for me to see Garib Rath inside the Loop of Vangaon (My home station though :P ) since had never seen Garib Rath except Kelve Road and Boisar Loop.

Andean Railways passenger train going through an intersection in the city of Oruro (Bolivia). Trains sharing the road with regular traffic and without any type of divisions is very common in Bolivia.


why would you put a train course in the middle of a downtown intersection by Mikhail Nikiforov, en Flickr

Does the train have to follow the traffic lights?
