I almost saw a nasty accident two hours ago on the Autobahn A30 just across the border.

A Russian truck was overtaking a Belarussian truck, and another Russian truck HAD to merge from the rest area because the shoulder ends there, but the BY truck couldn't move sideways because of the overtaking RUS truck.

that's actually crapy situation. if there was no sign for forbidden overtaking for lorries, left RUS and BY were not wrong because right RUS 100% had sign "give way".he woiuld enter motorway with minor speed what is dangerous, buthe should have done it

Today the first HST arrived in the Netherlands. It will be used on the new HSL from Amsterdam to Belgium. What do you guys think of this train? IMO it is really ugly, the Multipla of the trains

I don't like it either, are these from that Italian builder? Which would make sense, since the Multipla is also Italian...

@Buddy Holly: indeed, but unfortunately those are the colours of NsHispeed, the company that will operate those trains

@Chris: Yes, from AnsaldoBreda. The company already had a bad reputation when they got the deal. They're practically bankrupt now, and only one or two trains have been finished now. This one has been tested in the Czech Republic recently and was finally brought to the Netherlands today.

Is it Ansaldo Breda something ?

I hope our Polish Stare Railways won't choose them for our future HSR

AnsaldoBreda is an Italian company that produces trains. Denmark also has a deal with them, which also turns out to be a disaster

Oh, by the way, don't worry. Polish State Railways won't even be able to choose them for your future HSR: AnsaldoBreda will probably go bankrupt in the near future.

To be honest I think the best looking are new Siemens high speed trains...

Sauber und praktisch

it is really extremely ugly. the only uglier that is in my mind is also from the Netherlands - series 4000 and 4200 Koploper.
btw, that shape with beak can be really attractive (Talgo 350), but this is not that case
