The red brick is heading to st.urban, with a nice snow cloud at the end. Well the day when I went to take this photo, it snowed for about 2 days nearly non stop and then a sunny sunday with about 25-35 cm of fresh snow, although I had to to a whole bunch of stuff I wen out for a quick photo session, the only mistake I did was thath I left my gloves at home :(, oh boy was it f***ing freezing, so I stuck my hands into my pockets run to sometihing intrestin took the photo and so on, after one hour I had Ice blocks so I decided to go home for a hot cup of tea.

It looks rather like tram, not train.

yep, but it is a train or rather an EMU (Electric-Multiple-Unit)

What's the different between emu and train? It's not a good idea to divide them, emu is only a kind of train. So, every emu is a train :P

Well, I love your Allegra new Electric Units. ;) :) I've had a great play time on MSTS with those. :D Sorry for my ignorant question: Have you caught any photo of the Allegra Electric Units? :)

well those are the ones I talked about, they are like the flirts only for 1000mm gauge an equiped for alpin service (big snow plow), so the Be 4/8 STAR is the sister of the Allegra and the Flirt is the parent of those two :), no I haven't yet done photos of the RhB, cause I live about 200km away, but If I get time this winter I will try to cathc one, till then you can watch [link]
