In Coimbra, Portugal, trains used to pass through the road between Coimbra-B and Coimbra-Parque.

This one, in a pretty old picture, as you can see...:



And it´s funny to see 2 types of rail-tracks on the pavement, one for the trains and the other one for the tram.

Another one, more recent:

Thanx. I placed the first two, but none of the images of Ashland, VA that I could find would match the last one.

Also, although no trains were caught when these images were shot, here's couple in Wisconsin:
(Oconto, WI) http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=4...182.74,,0,4.82
and, although it is more 'boulevard' running, the CN mainline in Oshkosh, WI:
http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=4...210.94,,0,1.56

Surprised nobody posted photos from Lagrange, KY yet.

NOTE* None of these pictures belong to me. All were taken from railroadpics.net. All credit goes to their respective photographers.

take a look at the third picture

http://www.eifelbahnforum.de/forum/v...3dfbffaea80fac

it's in Schleiden-Olef, NRW, Germany

just a small OT-note:
Oleftalbahn through Olef-Valley including this passage through the village Olef (yeah: also called so! ) is now drivable in its entire length from Kall to Hellenthal again! Politicians wanted to remove this scenic railway completely some years ago...

It's not really that dangerous for the train, it will easily overpower even large buses and trucks, just stay out of its way and ur good.

Trams blend perfectly in with the busy downtown traffic as in every European city it does... Hopefully your gonna get more rappedly used to it than people in the US because in Phoenix and other US cities where trams and lightrail is placed only recently, a lot of accidents accure by stupid drivers thinking the tram would stop for them or speeding up en trying to turn into a sidestreet in front of the tram.

Well, Queensland has a number of situations like that so it isn't unusual in Australia.

Street running in Tacna, Peru:



On the railway from Arica, Chile to Tacna, Peru.

Street running scene in Tacna is at 1:22 - 1:58.

Horn accompanied by siren for those who are slow to respond.
