Your Favorite Train.

Fri Apr 06, 2007 6:05 am

Well all this talk of the TGV got me thinking:
High Speed: Spanish AVE beetween Sevilla-Madrid
Semi high speed: Talgo 200 from Malaga to Madrid.
Metro:Paris
Commuter(Back to my homeland)PATCO high speed line beetween New jersey and Philadelphia.

For me it has to be either the Fort William sleeper from London - Get on the train in the city and wake up in the country or the journey between Inverness and Kyle of Lochalsh.

I like the Amtrak Twilight Shoreliner (aka Regional Train 66/67) between NPN-BOS. Catch it in Washington mid-evening and arrive in BOS early the next morning. Its so nice when I feel like taking a slow trip.

Yes, I do like Amtrak, so piss off you Amtrak haters.

None really.

The Eurostar trains that TrenItalia have are nice.
I quite like Transpennine Expresses new 185's too.

But really, a train is a train to me. If it gets me from A to B (via C often) then I don't care.

I love the Swiss rail system. On time, clean, punctual, and not slow like the American system.

My favorite Metro is the London Underground, and my favorite commuter train is NJ Transit, only because it's the only one I've taken.

The Metropolitan from Cologne to Hamburg via Duesseldorf and Dortmund. Now that was cool. Blankets, pillows and portable DVD players available. And the train won design awards for its stylish brushed aluminium and wood interior.

Sadly doesn't run any more. Lost too much money.

Funnily enough.

I like to travel on trains, it's a good way of seeing the countryside. However, travelling the same route can become incredibly monotonous, so it's a nice opportunity for variation, especially when travelling on other country's railways.

High Speed: Maglev; Shanghai Pudong airport to Pudong itself, amazing acceleration and a very smooth ride as well.
Semi High Speed: Pendalino - especially considering the track work in places, they are a good ride and comfortable. As was sadly proven recently, they are also a very strong design when involved in high speed crashes.
Underground/Rapid Transport/Metro etc..: Definately the London Tube, I love it just for what it is and what is stands for, even if it does get unbearably hot over the summer.

I think my favourite journey would be from Plymouth up to Gunnislake on the Tamar Valley line. It's operated by Wessex Trains class 150's or class 153's and transcends some beautiful scenery. Firstly you leave Plymouth, and from the old GWR mainline move onto the ex Southern Railway line to London, then travelling beneath the historic IK Brunel bridge and the Tamar Suspension Bridge - both of which were and still are iconic, architecturally groundbreaking designs. Then into the countryside, rolling fields seem to blend harmlessly with the many estuaries, and you can just make out the odd farmhouse nestling amongst them, one of which I used to work on. Approaching Beer Alston I see my families previous house, and then after a short stop, and a change of direction we head back out, but this time taking the spur of track which leads out over the Calstock viaduct, the view from the top of this is simply breath-taking, right down the Tamar Valley as you cross it, far above. Then after a few more stops, the line terminates, but it's worth getting off from any of the stations, as there are so many walks and rides possible in the local countryside.

I can't remember a time when I wasn't fascinated with the SBB Re 460 locomotive. Sounds ridiculous I know, but even when compared with aircraft, I've yet to see a better looking machine. A couple of weeks ago I was looking more closely at the side of one when I saw that sticker for the legendary "Pininforina" design house. Yeah, that figures.  biggrin

Look at the smaller photo in Reply 17 Mark, you'll see two of those type cars behind the SD-70 pulling my train to Seward last summer. All of the newer non-coach cars (lounges and diners) AKRR is purchasing have the wrap around windows. AKRR also has some double height cars, not double deck, with the wrap around windows on top. They are bar cars  biggrin .

Look at this photo: You can see the high level Lounge/Snack Bar Car about to enter the tunnel. The center of the car is the kitchen.

These two locomotives are by far my most favorite. During my time as a trainman with the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum, I had charge of many trains pulled by these locomotives. I also had the privilage of working these locomotives with some of the finest enginemen in the business. Working occasionally as head end brakeman or flagman, I had many opportunities to fire these two handbombers (hand fired for those non-railroaders) and occassionally got to run them. It isn't easy working ten to twelve hours on the deck of one of these locomotives in 100% humidity and 140 degree temperatures but I did it and am all the better for it. If nothing else, that work built character and kept some extra weight off during my high school and college years.

When I was a little kid my dad and I went on one of the last Denver & Rio Grande Western runs of the Rio Grande Zeypher, in April of 1983. D&RGW didn't join Amtrak and ran its last passenger train in April of 1983. That was an expierence that started my interest in railroads. This photo of me and the F9, me was taken at Denver Union Station just before departure to Salt Lake City. My dad has a picture of me standing infront of this same locomotive at the Colorado Railroad Museum in 2001. I have always liked the D&RGW.

Another favorite of mine is the Frisco 1522 steam locomotive. Which I was able to ride behind out of St. Louis many times in the 1990s. I don't have a photo to show you. They are on slides and I have one big photo I took hanging in my office. I worked with the St. Louis Chapter NRHS as a car host from 1992 until 2001. We also did trips with the UP 844 and 3985.

Another favorite was the Royal Gorge Railroad, which I rode in 2001.

not all trains in India have people on top, so don't draw too many conclusions. The "Palace on Wheels" is a great train ride.

Check out this train as it blows through a station a little faster than any Amtrak with no one on top!

Amtrak's California Zephyr is an amazingly scenic journey all the way from Emeryville to Denver...Denver to Chicago...not so much. I rode that one back in '04 and it actually took us three nights to do the duration due to track flooding in Iowa. We took an old freight railroad detour via Ames once we left Omaha, which added 18 hours to our journey. Thet train eventually ran out of food and drinks. It was a surreal experience there towards the end....but an incredible adventure!

Of course I've been on 19/20 (Crescent), 58/59 (City of New Orleans), and 1/2 (Sunset Limited) dozens of times, so each of those trains means something to me for different reasons.

Although not overly scenic, kicking back in in the Lounge Car on #58 while pounding away on the CN track in between Yazoo City and Greenwood is a mighty nice way to spend an afternoon.  Wink


Give me an F40PH pulling a baggage car, crew dorm car, dome coach, amfleet lounge, heritage diner, heritage coaches, and a couple of old heritage 10&6's and i'll be happy as can be.

I really like the Hiawatha Line in Minneapolis. Its very efficient and every time my family and I go to a Minnesota Twins game we take the train.

I also like Amtrak. I don't know why, I just do.

One of my favorite freight trains is the blue engine operated by Canadian Pacific that goes near my house. Two other freight trains I like are the two steam engines in Two Harbors, Minnesota.

And if the Duluth commuter rail ever gets built, I know I will really like that.
