ALCO's C636s were IMO the most awesome six axle beasts to ever ride American rails. If only they hadn't performed so poorly in their trial runs out west, SP, WP, and Santa Fe may have ordered some. That and the C-630 reliability issues doomed the company.
Alco diesels looked better with high hoods.

it's a shame really, Alco's S1 and S3 switchers were apparently very robust workhorses

Where are you from, anon?
I live about 5 miles away from Whitehead. I've been to the Railway Museum several times in my lifetime, from when I was a small kid, to the most recent time being in March 2017 (just before they started charging for admission to the museum).
In 2016, I took the steam train from Whitehead to Dublin. It took about 4 hours to do the journey since the train had to stop a number of times to fill up on water as well as wait for regular passenger trains to overtake at stations.
I spent 3 years travelling frequently from Whitehead to university up on the north coast, and NIR is probably the only railway system I know in detail.

Woah that's a lot of pics, really nice ones too.

I'm from Toronto so there's really nothing like any of this stuff around where I live. The Irish railways are extra comfy even if a lot of them are just gone now. I have a whole bunch of maps and pictures but it all kinda hurts now.
Eh, there were a large number of railways which covered a lot of Northern Ireland, but they were dismantled after a report was commissioned in the 1960s, parallelling the infamous Beeching Report in Britain. The Railway which would have connected Lisburn to Omagh and to Derry was dismantled and countless narrow gauge rail lines were also dismantled, partly due to how few people were using them, and how the bus and the car seemed to be far easier to go with than modernising narrow gauge lines.

I must say though, I prefer Toronto's public transport. I was last there in 2013, so it's been a while. The Streetcars (or trams, let's call them) were pretty good, and I understand a lot of the aging stock has been replaced with Bombardier Flexities. They came into service after I was last there, but I have used a lot of Flexity trams in Berlin.
The subway was pretty good too, especially the newer rolling stock which have connections throughout the whole of the train.
I never used the GO Transit in the GTA area or VIA Rail, but I did take a Maple Leaf train from NYC Penn Station to Toronto Union Station. I must say that I really did like that journey, all except the part at the Canadian border. CBSA can go........ do a thing..... I find it hard to imagine that the people at Pearson airport are somehow more reasonable than the people at Niagra Falls. CBSA almost interrogated me because I flew back to Dublin airport instead of a UK one...
Anyway, I like Toronto. It's a nice city with a lot of neat features like the PATH. I after getting a souvenir, I also decided to be weird and buy Blue Jays baseball caps. I don't follow baseball much, but if people wear Yankees caps because it's fashionable, why can't I wear a Blue Jays cap?
took the enterprise train from dublin to belfast this past summer and it was nice. I'm from Toronto where everything costs more than it should so I payed for first class when I saw it was less than 100 dollars. Super comfy
Yeah, Toronto's transit and North American cities in general are pretty good near the centre (where all the tourists are coincidentally) but as you get further away from downtown things quickly get really awful.

Once in some random tiny town we stopped in for lunch I saw a local dude in a Maple Leafs cap, was pretty strange.

Good to see a fellow torontonian here, I wish I had taken the Enterprise to belfast

r8 our rail systems
Looks eastern-europey.
I like that in the late 60s through the 80s all electric locos looked like the same box/toaster.

Post your branchline locos
Can someone post photos of the ubahn models that were used in and around Berlin in the very early 2000s?
I'm half German and used to visit my other family a lot but haven't been to Germany since I was like 7, I don't remember much besides the insanely clean and attractive public transport from there [I also remember the double Deckers having buttons to open the door, the trains having them too, and that I loved to press those buttons...]

A prominent feature of those trains/subways is that I remember that they were bright yellow with big red lights above/next to the doors to indicate boarding etc...

really need the 4channel board for Transportation to pull thru 4 me thank u very muc
Another detail is that I remember the trains were quite rounded/slanted, not super boxy iirc.. I've tried looking but there's so may models that have been recycled so many times that I don't think I can narrow my search down without knowing exactly what model I'm looking for
Here's a picture I took.

Strasburg sometimes does revenue hauled freight with Steam. Sometimes there's a diesel to assist, and sometimes the steam is double headed or even solo.

In fact, this past July they did a run with steam because the diesel had mechanical problems.
