If there was ever a video where the name really suited the video, this is it. "Colourful Trains" most certainly fits. Name the type of trains you like: Commuter, Inter-city, Inter-country, Freight, Electrics, Diesels, Trams. It's all here. City and country scenes are covered as well. I was amazed as I watched. The colours and the amount of trains, the different styles and types will certainly grab a viewer's attention. Engines are from around the world, including Class 66's from EMD in in London Ontario, Canada. It's all here. We see the new unfinished double line for the high speed 185 mph ICE's that will connect Amsterdam to Paris in a mere 3 hours. The freight trains are different to see. Intermodals look similar, but the other freight cars have differences from North American. Some of the styles of the cars are unique. The major note is that a long train is a mere 40 cars long. Many of the older diesels have a GMD1 look to them with the cabs part way back, and small fuel tanks. The EMD Class 66's have cabs on both ends, but other wise look similar to the LRC engines that VIA Rail Canada once had.
