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.

^^^ 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.

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

We vacation there every summer.

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.

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

Also, that collection of trains in Kiev is serious.

Our trains in Charlotte are small, er, "light"








Kamakura Enoden line


Baltimore


Traveling in Tokyo from Odaiba to Shinbashi by train, looking at another train.


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

France

Our TGV (High Speed Train)





Our TER (Commuter rail)



and some from my US trips

Boston commuter rail





Amtrak
