    I guess it makes more sense to have another thread like this in the Off Topic section of TSW, as it would see more traffic than the TS1 post.

    Yep, arrived on the London Victoria-origin service, while the train departed back again relatively quickly to clear the 450 behind it.

    Here is a 101 in arriving into Frankfurt circa 2014 when I travelled from Frankfurt to Hamburg on one, they are much dirtier in real life than in the game!

    IMG_20140418_094404081_HDR.jpg

    And here was Hamburg a few hours later on arrival, it's a shame TSW can't capture the truly amazing spectacle of this station, it has a real sense of occasion, everything just seems to work brilliantly, the multiple levels, the amount of rail traffic, even the corporate logos just seem to add to the drama of it all. Would recommend any journey that takes you through here! (Bonus appearance of the ICE-TD and high door dostos too)

    Disruption on the Great Western this evening led to the unusual sight of four Class 345's in platforms 9 to 12 at Paddington. These units are usually in and out in around 10 minutes or so more than a couple in the station is unusual. IMG_20210629_173107867~2.jpg

    DB BR 101...Ehm, FS Class E402B in Frecciabianca (WhiteArrow) livery and composition aka Intercity service.

    E402174_Marzaglia_170213.jpg

    Similar service (IC Notte/Night) but 20 years ago. (FS Class E444R)

    Trenitalia,_444052_Brindisi.jpg


    Furthermore, if anyone is interested, on this Channel they will find several cab rides (concerning the high speed and the traditional line) regarding the Italian railway. High-speed trains use the new level 2 ETCS system. -> Theitaliantraindrivers - YouTube


    And this is the news, here on Paris Gare de Lyon for some test (maybe a day on the LGV Marseille-Avignon...on TSW2)

    LGV* yeah it’s one of the 2 sets in test in France it was supposed to be in service in 2020 for some Paris-Milan and Paris-Marseille services but COVID changed the plan but in TSW2 I don’t see the point of including it like the Duplex RD it’s better to extend the route to Lyon like in TS

    Both videos are by Eisenbahn Videos NRW und Deutschland. These are filmed in Wuppertal the Rhein-Ruhr Osten route


    From these two videos the DB BR110 family known as the Standard Electric locomotive Einheitslokomotiven are in operation despite being built in the mid to late 1950s.

    Maybe when steam trains could pull part 1 then part 2 a different loco that could work

    Correction: That was the first time it ever moved under its own power for the 1st time in 68 years. NMSL&RHS has done fire ups with the engine under steam before that at open houses and other points in time for tests and the sort.

    I was very fortunate to visit Madrid Puerta de Atocha station for a trip to Valencia the other day. I had a lot of fun seeing all the AVE high speed trains covered in squished bugs.

    The first route with a speed of 200 km / h is currently being built in the Czech Republic. It will open next year and will have ETCS. Next year in the Czech Republic, the maximum speed will not be 160, but 200 km
