This is basically a thread where people can post pictures of a train that they usually get/one that runs regularly in their area, and others can rate their design based on their picture. I'll start:

>>

Local here.
Class 4000 is nice, but the Class 3000 has more seats, as well as more tables.
That said, I would rather have any continental European EMU over the stuff we're limited to.
>>1263707

>>1263713
>7.2/10
It still has a decent aesthetic that holds up today, and I know it's supposed to be a reliable train, but not up to par with the new Hitachi 800s or Pendolinos
>>
>>1263724
The 3000 class looks uglier on the outside though, and usually isn't very well heated compared to 4000.
>>
>>1263728
I commuted to uni on a mix of the two, because NIR just puts whatever on the lines.
Class 3000 was always more pleasant for longer journeys. In winter, they were always heated adequetely, much better than the old Class 450 "Castle" which was derrived from BREL's Sprinter DMUs and the older Class 80s as well. I think Class 80s and Class 450s are preserved as Sandite trains by NIR, but they have not been in revenue service for many years now.

6/10. Man, I feel like 90% of Anglo trains look the same.

Class 80 was not a very nice train to use. Slam door system was kinda unpleasant to use, and while the weird bench like seats were softer than that on the Class 450s, I don't think I'll ever like the Class 80s.
Also, Antrim station looks way nicer today than it did in whatever year that was.

Gotta say though that new Enterprise is really comfy though.

Any of these three since now the 6000 series is retired and the 209-1000 are now on the chuo line.
The new 16000s are fucking shit. They use sic-vvvf so the train is so quiet you can't use the inverter noise to wake you up when sleeping on the train. Also they 16000 series has that fucking gay ass horn that you can barely hear so you don't wake up when the train comes into the station.
The e233-2000 and the odakyu are the same train with different facias.
>>
>>1263925
it's comfy but shit as an intercity train. I've said this a few times on /n/ but they really need to replace that shit with something fast and aerodynamic so that it doesn't take like 2 hours to get to Belfast when it could feasibly take an hour 20 mins with a better train

I bounce back and forth I visit family every year most of the time I stay in south saitama. But I have two other big lines that I have the option of taking but the Tobu Skytree line has so much rolling stock on it you can't even post all of them in a photo. The Chiyoda line used to run 8 different trains on the line at one point if you don't count the romancecars that run.

I mean, they're not British.
"Anglo" comes from the Latin word for England, Anglia.
Ireland is not England. Thus is not Anglo.
>>1264571
Northern Ireland is a country name though. It was the name created after Irish partition by the British in 1922 to prevent widespread insurrection, by allowing the Irish nationalists to have their own state, allowing for a part of Ireland to be effectively a germandered region.
The Irish Free State did later just become Éire by name. "Republic of Ireland" is actually a made up name by the British to somehow differentiate it from Northern Ireland. The Football Association of Ireland, FAI (not to be confused with the Irish Football Association, IFA) uses "Republic of Ireland" for international football to prevent confusion with the IFA's international team, which uses Northern Ireland.
Ireland is confusing to talk about, because you can never be clear what you're talking about.

I lowkey fucking love these trains, I've never got one before but their design and speed are so cool to me. I also like how some of them have the destinations on the doors (I think?) which is just mind-blowing. I'd give it a 9.5 only cause I've never been on one so they could be terrible to sit in and ride on.
>>
>>1264755
They do have the destination on the doors. I'd say seating is slightly above average for British trains and I'm a big fan of the screens above the seats that update whether the seat is reserved after each stop. On the other hand, they're not quiet inside and you can really feel the tilting if you stand up.

Well, they're the exact same model as the ones used in São Paulo's CPTM, which is exactly that, so you're on point. Not an abomination, I know, but I sometimes get very ranty about trains with sleek fronts that are slow.
>>1264769
>>1264781
Not taking the colours into account, pretty good shape, but for some reason I just don't like ultra low floor trams, being on the MBTA Green biased me into liking trams with higher floors. That colour scheme though, yikes. Could do with some darker shades, maybe substituting the white with some shade of gray ?

>>1264781
Thanks anon. I still think the colors are two intense. Either a paler yellow or a darker blue would suit them well.

That tram looks like an absolute unit, especially with three cars attached. Probably holds almost as many people as a metro train, doesn't it?
>>
>>1264753
In Europe, most trains are either "Intercity" or "Regional". "Commuter" is very specific to cities, and is also based on the country as well.
Most regional trains serve to connect smaller towns with other towns as well as cities. Typically, they tend to have a top speed of about 160 km/h which often means that an aerodynamic design is more pleasant, while also having a higher capacity than intercity trains for a smaller size, allowing them to act as some form of commute option during rush hour.
>>
>>1264787
Siemens says that one of those card can carry 243 people which seems a little high. But, yeah they can carry a ton of people. I would switch the white and yellow if I we're in charge. They chose a low floor to make it easier for cyclists to get on iirc

The future liveries will probably be closer to the BRT line if I had to make a prediction
>>
>>1264794
80 pax per three-car unit isn't at all high. That's as much as a two-axle bus can carry. I'd even say it's on the low side, and would consider about 120 pax per three-car unit, about as many as an articulated bus.
>>
>>1264799
Anon said each one of those cars carries 243 people. That's pretty close to what a thirty meter long tramcar in my city can carry, so I'll believe it. This is both sitting and standing passengers though.

A three car tram of that size can carry 730 people. That's almost the carrying capacity of an average metro train, so pretty intense
>>
>>1264750

As far as i know NIR have one train that runs to Dublin and back

Id hardly call that operating throughout the island lad
>>
>>1264827
A 30 meter tram carries about 220, so you're right, it's not that far off. I had to look up the length, they look much shorter on the pic, I guess since they only have three sections.

>>1263853
It looks kinda bland but weird because of its narrow gauge. I personally don't like side benches on any trains other than subways, and this is apparently meant to be used outside the city as well. 6/10
>>
>>1264842
I meant that I would group NIR and IR trains into 'Irish trains.' Also, if the Enterprise locomotive breaks down, they usually send an NIR or IR commuter/intercity train on the route to cover for it, so they technically do anyway, if that's what I meant in the first place.

You used to be able to walk between coupled units, but that capability got removed in 2005, ostensibly because it required a lot of maintenance. You can still see this configuration in some other EMUs (like the Super Azusa).

>I have a BA in Irish politics
Is that from a university in the Island of Ireland?
I mean, I'm from County Antrim, one of the luckier counties, I guess.... but I've lived here for pretty much 99% of my life.

While I do agree that there is something to say about how the train systems are the same gauge and rely on a high level of cooperation, the thing is that both NIR and IÉ operate different types of services with different ticketing and different signalling standards and funding.
Yes, there's a high level of fare overlap (you can get a ticket from an office in NI and have the destination be outside of NI and your ticket in some office in rural Ireland and have the destination in NI), but the fares are going to be quite different.
While I would be willing to refer to the railways in Ireland as a network, they are ultimately run by two separate companies with different mandates, different budgets and different services.

The whole being able to walk everywhere thing is so much better than the shit we have to deal with people who don't need lawns and shit and urban planning that doesn't force those people into dense areas sucks. But man it's just so much easier to just walk to where I go.

Also great that the E231-500s are going to the chuo-sobu line. Then all of those E231-0s are going hopefully to the musashino line.
Pic also another line I take into Tokyo it's fast AF compared to any other non limited express service granted it costs me 280 yen to go three stations.

as someone who's been riding them regularly since they were built, I can confirm that they are as good on the inside as the outside.

It's not the fact that the design is bad per se, it's the fact that Bombardier think it's acceptable to build literally every train they produce with the exact same body.

>Also, how is a subway DMU supposed to work?
The tunnel section is short but generally it shouldn't exist in the form it currently exists in. It should have been electrified before they (re)opened the line back in the 90's.

Looks most similar to Hamburg's or Berlin's S-Bahn judging from the wikipedia article. Or like a metro with stops a little further apart.

Metronom wagons are comfy, especially the "ruhewagen" which have dimmed lights. Prefer them a lot over the new double-deckers on the Hamburg-Kiel where you can't even rest your eyes because the lights are so bright.
>>
>>1271228
Who operates them and with what rolling stock? Stadler KISSes as well? I can't say the lights disturbed me in any way on the Westfalenbahn and transdev trains. Metronom is based for letting you switch the light on and off over your seat though.

I wish I lived next to a legit heritage railway. Closest thing I have is this:

It's a newish line in Tampa, Florida, with new cars made to look old, and they have one legit historic one that's taken out rarely. It has pitiful numbers, though. About 3 miles long and gets around 600 riders per day.

Tambours are bad design on all RVR and RVRwannabe EMUs. There just just too many peoples running in and out of train every 5 minutes (mainly in capital area) and small passage between seats doesnt help either. On the other hand theres lot of seat space, making design work for not so overcrowded lines. Would have been nice if soviets consider some "Rush hour" edition. At least Moscow's gov working on it rn

On ЭД4M-500+ they had fixed it (sort of). Cabin doors are still there, but there are no between car door, which allows more pax.

Its a regional line. The "s" is for "schnell" not "straße". This confuses me quite a bit.

>>1274577
Where are you from? The S in S-Bahn never stood for "Straße"

This is how a classic modern (70s) S-Bahn looks.
The new Leipzig one looks almost like some sort of regional train.

>NRW. I guess it was a misunderstanding on my part.
Interesting. People in my area (of NRW) often use S-Bahn to refer to Stadtbahn or Straßenbahn. As an autistic foamer, this triggers me immensely.
Are you from East Westphalia or Lippe, perchance? I have previously theorized that it's a regiolectal thing for areas with no S-Bahn.
>>
>>1274577
>The "s" is for "schnell"
I was under the impression that it actually stood for "Stadt", as in a city railway, much like how a number of German (as well as Austrian and Swiss) cities have a section of line actually referred to as a "Stadtbahn".
For example, the elevated section of line in Berlin between Berlin Zoologischer Garten and Berlin Lichtenberg is called the Stadtbahn, as it is an inner-city railway.
The main reason why "Stadtbahn" was not used as a name was because regional trains were called "RB - Regionalbahn" or "RE - Regional Express". So, Stadtbahn was just shortened to "S-Bahn". When the West German cities of Cologne, Düsseldorf, Bielefeld, Frankfurt and I think somewhere else, started their pre-metro systems, the term "Stadtbahn" was recycled. Since no one called "S-Bahn" Stadtbahn anymore, it just made sense to reuse it.

I have heard people in Berlin and the surrounding area call the S-Bahn the "Stadtbahn", but sometimes it's specific to the more metro like lines in the inner-city, and sometimes it's generalised.
>>
>>1274628
According to (German) wiki S-Bahn stood for Stadtschnellbahn initially.
>>
>>1274626
No, Im from Münster, not that far apart though. Dont overthink it, its easy to assume that s is for straße, especially if you arent into trains alot

Huh. Must be a regional thing then.
I guess that must then depend on what your local S-Bahn is. Hamburg and Berlin have much more of a city-centric design. Berlin's network was established from the "Stadteisenbahn", which was a mix of the "Stadtbahn" and the "Ringbahn", which is now part of the modern S-Bahn network.

I suppose that in another area, like around the Rhein-Ruhr area, "Schnellbahn" might be considered the name, since it connects the cities, towns and suburbs with each other. The "schnell" part must have come from some comparison to trams or road traffic.

There's possibly the other aspect of the "schnell" stemming from the "Taktfrequenz"/"Taktfahrplan", where people could just go to the train station whenever they wanted to get the train, instead of having to rely on journey planning, and getting a certain train at a certain time of the day.
>>
>>1274661
Don't you think it's more of a branding thing? Berlin and Hamburg established S-Bahn as an idea in the early 30s. But both those systems operated beyond municipal borders and beyond merely the built-up area. It's just that the cities grew in all around the S-Bahn, so that stations are nostly within the city limits nowadays. Factor in the higher population density of cities back in the day, and there isn't much of a difference between the two original S-Bahn networks and the newer ones anymore.

So when Ruhrschnellverkehr rebranded and the München, Frankfurt and Stuttgart S-Bahnen were established in the 60s and 70s, it just made sense to call them that. Frequencies may be lower and stops may be further apart, but really, that's it.

>>1274644
A friend of mine used to ride the real S-Bahn every day of the week, but he still uses the term to refer to trams as well. I think the difference is perfectly clear. It's like calling a moped a truck.

My car's engine nuked itself so it's back to public transport but I'm so glad that now we have these on almost every line. Quiet, problem free and spacious. Based Swiss engineers.

Finland has a habit of buying shitty French, Italian or Spanish rolling stock that doesn't work in the winter. Like they learned with the shitty Bombardier trams saving a little isn't worth it in the long run. Then they replace them with stuff that actually works, usually from countries that do have a winter of sorts. The tram problem was solved by producing the tram locally. Skoda liked them so much they bought the company and now they're going to be used in Germany and Czech Republic as well.

The trains were cheaper, Switzerland has snow.

Same old stuff.
It’s either Amtrak OR its CN
And in a while, you will see CSX, NS, and UP
No BNSF or KCS.
