    I actually made a video then found out that Ril images will not host videos. I am squating about 5 feet from the freccia rossa as it screams by at full speed. I will dig around and make some building posts for Boxcab, but really the ones online are usually much better. My photos are mostly taken from moving trains. :)

    We used to have the ability to upload small, (a couple of megabytes worth), of video. :( So many people use sites such as YouTube or Vimeo, and just link in their items.....

    Well, I just happened to fine a video if an old EMU (Ale 883, the one that went to the US - see the previous page) brought back to service. Part of the video is a cab ride, and you can see the engineer doing transitions (the little wheel that turns by itself is called "avviatore automatico" and disconnects the resistors one by one in order to complete the transition - only EMUs had that, for standard locos it was all manual).


    These EMU had many parts in common with the more prestigious ETR 200 (the front), the main differences were the interiors, the gearing and the fact that while the ETR200 was a single train having Jacobs bogies, these had 2 bogies each and could be consisted according to the needs. Some consists had dummy units as you can see here.

    I've watched that one before it's really fun.
