Trains |=|=|=|=|[ ]-[ ]-[ ]=|=|=|=|
 
Sorry for the corny title illustration (supposed to be an overhead view of a train on tracks...didn't work too well), but I thought I would start up a photo thread on trains. I like them. I like taking pictures of them. I like looking at other pictures of them. Please post train pictures here.

To start:

^^^ Have you all seen the map of all the train tracks around downtown Chicago in the 50's that Mr. Downtown posted a while ago in the general developments thread or somewhere while we were talking about covering the tracks in Grant Park?

^Excellent. What area is that? I am assuming in Canada somewhere (based on your avatar); it is quite beautiful.

BFHeadstone Jan 14, 2009 4:40 AM

That is the Shuswap Lake area in the interior of British Columbia

We vacation there every summer. :)

Jibba Jan 14, 2009 5:07 AM

Dang, lucky you! BC is such a beautiful place.

^Kickin' it old-school. Any idea of the production year of that model?

Sekkle Jan 15, 2009 5:01 AM

weird... I love trains, but I have relatively few photos (except I do have lots of the MAX here in Portland.

British Columbia


Vancouver Skytrain (out the window of the car)



New York – LIRR in Forest Hills, Queens


New York – 7 Train in Jackson Hts, Queens


New York… maybe West 4th St, Manhattan


Portland


(not sure if the streetcar counts... probably not, but it's got rails!)





Phoenix

Great shots! I wish we had street-cars here in Chicago. It would be such a cool/bizarre/intimidating site to see a train rolling down the street.

Thanks olga...

Berlin has the hottest trains by far--great pictures, olga.

Also, that collection of trains in Kiev is serious.

Even the signs on the trains warning of closing doors are super kawaii in Tokyo.

A Metro is a store for pro, they sell everything for small stores, restaurants, offices... from cartridge to food, here's a link to Metro India, the only one I found in English http://www.metro.co.in/, but the Metro cash & carry group is present in 28 countries, mainly in Europ...

Here's my contribution to this thread
