@ born acorn, nice model. what brand is it?

@dizcon, if that is a subway train it beats the ugly ones we have here in Rotterdam, yours looks somewhat like the TGV.

It's a regular suburban train, BM72. Designed by and for NSB for use on short, local distances in Norway, produced by Ansaldo in Italy.

The only Norwegian city that actually has a subway, is Oslo.
There they are replacing this one:

the nearest Heritage railway to me is the: http://www.llangollen-railway.co.uk/

Its standard gauge.

My favourite railway however is a narrow Gauge railway and the link is the train in my sig

oh yeah, raptortycoon, it is bulit by a bus company, can't remember right now, but the train is a Sprinter 155 and is cheap to run and fits 80 people per car, it is in TTD as the 'dash'

I'm sort of equidistant between three heritage railways - the West Somerset Railway, the longest in Britain; the East Somerset Railway and the Bristol Harbour Railway.

edit: the tag for a link is [url] not [urk] :roll:

Born Acorn i had to ride one of those across scotland once, not sure if it was that exact type but one very similar. also the model in your picture looks A LOT like the one my dad has on his extensive 00 gauge model railway that is in our loft. i will get a list of all the models he has and some photos if possible

Whilst on the subject of Heritige railways, I think that the "Zig Zag" is worth a look (a one and a half or so hour away from my place here in Sydney)
