Is all of Estonia still Russian gauge or have they got some standard gauge there now?

Is there a limit on how many locos they can run together?

Sounds reasonable. Sydney has a new driverless metro where at the moment there is only 1 line working but more are being constructed. The sad thing is one of the lines soon to be affected is a heavy rail one. The shunting locos in the yards have an Radio controlled operator and several shunters. If the loco has to go any distance then it’s driven from the cab. The Pilbara here in Australia is in the middle of nowhere and each company has its own stand alone network.

New Zealand has radio controlled shunting engines, but much smaller size locos. One went for an unexpected swim not so long ago ending up in Picton Harbour! Also Rio Tinto mining in Western Australia, the guys who had the BNSF loco. They’re trains are supposed to be completely automated wth a driver minder I think.

Very atmospheric, I thought for a second that you’d made the background black and white!

The power car of the Talgo looks not unlike the original class 373 Alstom built power cars on the Eurostars.

The carriages look like German Railways Regio Bahn cars.
