Hi all,

Yesterday I happened to be in Tel Aviv with a camera, so I took a video of a DD train pulling into Tel Aviv Hahagana station:

The front panel indicates Berne's line S1.

They will be part of Class 513. Class 522 are Flirt for Basel S-Bahn (15-25 kV). The number on the rendering is not correct.

TGV double deck is beautiful. How many people can be in one car? It could maybe run in Japan with some local adaptations, no?
I wander why now, for long distance trains, they don't build double-deck in standard, it would dramatically lower the price of the ticket. Imagine, I paid recently with Ryanair 40 € for return ticket Riga-Brussels (around 3000 km). To make 300 km in Belgium, I pay around the same amount: 40€ . Is it normal? When will we see low-fares trains?

Double deck trains are too big for a lot of lines.

And with the UK loading gauge they are totally impossible (even if there have been a few prototypes).

What is the UK gauge? Maximum height? Maximum load? Maximum width?

I think the 40 € for Riga-Brussels is not normal.

Brussels? You mean Charleroi.
Ryanair is perhaps a nice airline for backpackers but nothing for people who have to work. Here in Germany its destinations are village airports and you'll have no connecting flights.

In Portugal double-deck units are used for urban services in Lisbon.
This class of trains are used by CP - Comboios de Portugal (state run company) and Fertagus (private company connecting Lisbon to Setúbal). Both companies use the same train model Series 3500 (3519-3530 e 3569-3580).

Max. Speed: 140km/h

CP:





FERTAGUS:

In the US we have a couple different models of double decker cars:

Bombardier Bi-level commuter cars, most common commuter rail cars. Ends feature driving cabs for push pull operation
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bombardier_BiLevel_Coach

Similiar product manufactured by Kawasaki
http://www.jefflubchanskycpa.com/VRE...AP20-7D11B.jpg

Chicago, San Fransisco, and Nashville have Gallery Cars. These are old
http://www.bayrailalliance.org/files...lery%20car.jpg

Same thing but electric version used only in Chicago
http://southshore.railfan.net/4-17-87.jp

Amtrak Superliners, there are 2 mostly identical versions which come in coach, sleeper, diner and lounge type configurations.

I didn't even noticed that, I guess this picture was taken when the BLS tried them out for the S-Bahn for Bern.
