503 of RWE Rheinbraun pulls a train of empty coal wagons to the opencast mine Hambach on 10 October 2001. As far as I know, this brown coal mine is the biggest artificial hole of the world. The trains run on standard gauge track, but the loading gauge is bigger than on DB lines. Also the axle load is higher, I think it is 35 metric tons because this four-axled loco has 140 tons. The maximum speed is 60 km/h, and this loco belongs to the EL 2000 class which has 2800 kW. The catenary is feeded with 6000 V at 50 Hz. Only one of the two big pantographs is used, the other one serves as a spare. The two little tilted pantographs on the sides are used under the loading facility, where a normal catenary is not possible. The single cab is wider than the rest of the train. If the train has to be reversed, the loco stays at the new rear end, and the driver uses one of the control desks in the side gondolas, which are facing backwards. Which side he chooses obviously depends on the side where the signals are. An acoustic signal on the first car is active in pushed operation. For driving forward like in the picture there is a control desk in the middle of the cab.

Both Virgin and FGW have approached the requirement for a quality DMU service, but difference can easily be seen with the slim line Voyager (built such such that common bodies can be used for tilting and non-tilting version) while the Bugatti styled 180 makes it look Brunel's Broad Gauge was stil in situ.

Over twenty years ago SBB was asked to name a locomotive «

Franches-Montagnes ». In relation with the 100th horse market in Saignelégier SBB decided to name Re 460 036-7 « Franches-Montagnes » on the 8th of august 2003 in this narrow gauge station of Chemins de fer du Jura. It is 25 kilometres away from the next standard gauge station. On the 7th of august the locomotive arrived in Glovelier and was charged on two trucks and pulled by steam traction to Saignelégier. Between Combe-Tabeillon and Bollement there are eight tunnels, which have a reduced height of contact wire. For security the SBB-locomotive was pulled by steam traction. At no time the loco was in contact with the overhead wire. After the naming ceremony the locomotive was exhibited in Saignelégier station till Monday and then brought back to Glovelier by an electric engine. It is the first time that a locomotive of the type Re 460 stays on a metric gauge station. Other transports of this kind have been done by road for special events, but never by rail.
The steam locomotive E 164 was delivered in 1905 by Henschel in Cassel to Portugal. Today this factory is absorbed by the Bombardier group. In 1993 the steam engine was brought back to Switzerland in 1993 by La Traction. It entered service in 1999 after a general overhaul in Meiningen on the metric network of Chemins de fer du Jura.
The SBB Re 460 036-7 was built by SLM and ABB in Winterthur and Zurich and delivered in 1993. Both works haven been taken over by the Bombardier group. Today there are no more factories, but engineering sites. It is one of the few locomotives which have not been named till today and which spot no advertising livery.

An oretrain of 1050 tons pulled by a 2TE10M on a steep incline (40 promille) in one of the open pit iron ore mines in Krivoy Rog in the eastern part of the Ukrain. The sound of the engines was deafening, even louder as a Nohab-GM sounds.
