Yeah, thats them. They were the "new trains" until the state govt. tried to get everyone to ride on the millenium trains (which break down more thna MY trains in TT. They are having fun trying to convince us taxpayers why we are footing the bill for such rubbish...

Here, have some "official" drawings of the Tangaras

Nah, the millenium trains are the new trains, like the Tangara, only better. They are supposed to replace the old "Tulloch" coach sets that have been around since the early 50's (1952 if memory serves me correctly), and were pulled by steam engines!

hey those bus thingies, that runs on monorail thingies are in adelaide, they supposedly go through the suburbs of adelaide on the bus transit way (some kind of traintrack/road or railroad [ :) ] ) and then go on the normal roads in the city, well the queensland rail website is down so this is the best pic i can get

Image

its the roma street train station in brisbane, the transit/long distance station; but currently only has two suburban trains in the station

Double deck trains look so cool compared to the majority of single deck trains

Here's my local trains (Merseyrail) - the first picture is the train that I am used to. The second picture is one of the new trains on the line since Arriva took over Merseyrail. Both pictures are from http://merseyrail.pictures.fotopic.net/
Unfortunately, I couldn't find any with my town-name on the destination :(
