    I've been watching a show called Mighty Trains, and the show basically shows really cool trains, how they operate, and the routes they go on. It's mostly trains in tourist destinations with sleeping cabins. The trains basically ferry passengers all across a big route where they stop at certain spots for excursions and what not.

    I feel like it'd be really cool to have routes like that, where instead of having to stop at a station and pick people up, you stop at a destination and hit a 'take in the view' option, and it shows a quick scene of the surrounding area, maybe show people walking around. Then you're off to the next leg of the journey, to the next tourist hotspot.

    That just sounds so cool to me.

    Sure is and They actually did the TS21 Berina Bahn route if you are wondering you need a Abe 8/12 Allegra train to be the EMU because it can run on both 11kv 16.7hz Rhb and Bernina Bahn 1kv DC wires. Bonus of Bernina Bahn if owned it's going to give Arosa Line a TS21 Classic Train the Abe 8/12 Allegra. Another excellent route would be Serbia Montenegro Beograd-Bar Railway.

    It's over 200 miles... unless you're reffering to a different Railway.

    Which, funny enough, just started up their newest route from Denver, Co to Moab, Ut, which does run on the Cane Creek branch to 7 Mile siding.

    I don't know the show but would throw all my money at any chance to drive Tito's Blue Train on the Bar line.

    On Beograd-Bar Railway Tito's blue train uses a DB BR 220 V200 locomotive which was mentioned on the show. Base model DB BR 220 V200 West Germany can run on Main Spessart Bahn Aschaffenburg-Gem√ľnden Hauptstrecke Rhein-Ruhr M√ľnchen-Augsburg RRO and RSN as a Museum Train.
