This is a new animation from leading global design and innovation company Seymourpowell showcasing it's new seat layout system designed to offer clear advantages and improvements to current or pre-existing layouts. The new design has been developed by Seymourpowell with particular focus on the business and premium travel segment of the high- speed and long distance rail market. Whilst omni directional and fold over seats have existed for years, the increasing need to offer travellers the flexibility and choice of sitting with others in a spirit of conviviality, or in the privacy of a separate zone has not been implemented in the mass market yet.

Unfortunately, our day trip to Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad), had to come to an end and it was time to head back to Prague. This was my first time on a České Dráhy (Czech Railways) train and it was an experience for sure! The trains are old and have seen better days and really could do with a lick of paint. The beginning of the video starts with a look at Karlovy Vary Railway Station, which still has remnants from the War. The booking hall and waiting area are old and the departure boards are still on a motorised roll - this all adds to the experiance! 0:04 - Inside Karlovy Vary Railway Station departure and arrival hall. 0:36 - Close up of the departure board. 0:59 - Outside the waiting room on the station platform. 1:12 - A Škoda Works České Dráhy (Czech Railways) Class ES 499.1 train waiting in the station bound for Cheb. 1:22 - Looking westbound down the platform. 1:32 - Our train now showing on the platform departure board. 1:40 - A České Dráhy (Czech Railways) ČSD Class 810 pulls into Platform 2. 2:08 - A České Dráhy (Czech Railways) ČSD Class 810 pulls out from Platform 2. 2:38 - Our train, a Škoda Works České Dráhy (Czech Railways) Class ES 499.1 arrives on Platform 1. 3:29 - Boarding the train and walk through to the compartment. 3:59 - Entering our compartment and an overview of a 2nd Class carriage. 4:32 - Seat overview. 4:42 - Departing Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad) station. 5:28 - Passing through the Czech countryside. 6:05 - Train stops at Ostrov nad Ohří Station ...
Come along with Green Rail Productions as we take a trip on Amtrak train # 69 The Adirondack. We will taking the train from Schenectady to Saratoga Springs, NY. I arrived at the Schenectady train station early enough to see the Amtrak Maple Leaf departing the station. I did not get a chance to see what number was on the P42DC. Shortly after the Maple Leaf I happened to catch a Norfolk Southern Industrial comming off of the Delaware & Hudson Line (D&H) which is owned by Canadian Pacific Railway. Norfolk Southern C44-9W # 8910 Union Pacific C45ACCTE # 5261 Finally the Amtrak Adirondack arrives. Running 45 minutes late. The reason for the delay is becuase of problen with one of the Amfleet Coaches in New York Penn Station. AMTK P42DC # 170 Amfleet I Coach Amfleet I Coach Amfleet I Coach Amfleet I Cafe Amfleet II Coach Amfleet II Coach When the passengers are getting on we can hear the conductor say "You got to go folks, we have to make up time." I rode in Amfleet I Coach # 82662. It did not work out as well as I would have liked because I did not get a seat next to a window. I had to sit in a seat on the outside. One thing I noticed is that a lot of the Amfleet Is and Amfleet II Coaches are getting.electronic LED signs which keep riders advised of up coming stops. . I believe that P42DC has a great sounding horn. We can hear the horn as the train is crossing Maxon Street. You can hear me say: "Just went arcoss Maxon Road." After we go across the Mohawk River we head onto the ...
Because no available 2nd class seats and even 1st class seats, I have to buy a super seat on my way back to Shanghai. It was 208yuan, can be compared to the 115yuan and 186yuan of 2nd class and 1st class seats. By the way, the distance is 240km from Zhenjiang to Shanghai Hongqiao
My 5" gauge Maxitrak (UK) 'Planet' battery loco at the Gippsland Model Engineering Society track. This was its first day hauling paying passengers, although it had run here earlier. 5 hours running (3 hauling up to five passengers) on a 55Ah deep cycle battery and still plenty left at closing time. :) The loco has two horns fitted. The original buzzer-type car horn and a compact truck air horn that I added. There is not much room in such a small loco for much else. The well wagon behind the loco in the opening scene is a Ride on Railways (UK) well wagon with seat added.
A brief clip demonstrating one of the reversible seats recently purchased by the LSR for the new diesel railcar. These seats are quite historic as they were, until recently, used on trams running on the world-famous Blackpool Tramway. More information on the Launceston Steam Railway, and our new diesel electric railcar, can be found on the news page of our website - www.launcestonsr.co.uk

The most obscure tourist railroad that I've been to is the Lake Whatcom Railway in Wickersham, WA. Running one train a day on Saturday and Tuesday made it tricky to plan for visiting, but we were able to get there in time. The railroad is one of the most authentic there is outside of railroads that were bought complete. The railroad runs on three miles of former Northern Pacific tracks, using former Northern Pacific passenger cars. Until 2000, they used ex-NP 0-6-0 1070, believed to be the one of few engines to run in every decade of the 20th century. Since then, they have used S1 #30, also an ex-NP engine. And with this being a one trip operation, only the best seat in the house was gotten: riding in the cab. Enjoy!
After 2 and a half years of stay in Mumbai, it was time to return home. I would typically fly, but due to the heavy and many luggages, I decided to book a ticket in the AC First Class in Mumbai-Howrah Mail. This video shows predominantly the interior of the AC First Class coach; however, there are a couple of outdoor scenes as well. Dated: 2007-06-29
A ride on the front seat of a Docklands Light Railway train departing Canary Wharf heading for Bank.
Many of you have asked how do you start a steam engine, or how long does it take. Well, here's your answer. Once you have the engine squared away, connected and water in the boiler, about 40 minutes. I said an hour in the video, because the other 20 minutes are messing around getting everything else set up. So now you have a fireman's side seat of what it takes to cold fire an engine. Enjoy!
Pretty much says it all... I ran the VO1000 from the garage down to the barn light and put the camera in the engineer's seat... Then the fireman's seat... all the while keeping the wrist cord out of the drive. Something different.
This was the first toilet I went in on the steam trains, it's a Twyfords, in white, with a matching washbasin. I haven't seen this model before, note the open front seat and concealed S trap. Really nice powerful flush on this one.
Been to the Great Central Railway today, and boy has it been good! This is at Loughborough station, in the ladies which once again, no-one takes a blind bit of notice if you just walk in there, as it's in a waiting room. These toilets have been renovated, this isn't the original toilet. It used to be a low level Shires Lynx and Royal Doulton, there is also an extra toilet added. I assume it's Ideal Standard as the washbasin is, and the seat is. The flush. Well. I was amazed, the flush pressure is amazing, and the sound, is just brilliant! I wouldn't normally recommend new toilets, but if you're there, these are worth a flush.

上海南站上海南駅Shanghai South Railway Station The Station is located in the southwestern part of Xuhui District, occupying sixty hectares of land. Contrary to most Chinese railway stations, which are overcrowded and regarded as unsanitary and unpleasant by many, the new look of South Station has a very clean, airport-like look and feel. The station itself is elevated 47 meters above ground and has a diameter of some 270 meters. It is made out of polycarbonate and aluminium sunblades, and supported by 18 branch-shaped beams resting on 3 columns each. The steel structure weight is 6000 T, for 56 000 square meters, and a 150 m maximum span. The steel structure was built by Shanghai Jiangnan shipyard and erected by SMCC. The trains arrive below the waiting areas, which are not interrupted by the structure itself, which is roughly divided into three levels. The mid-level contains the station platforms, at the same rough height as ground level, and contains thirteen tracks and six passenger platforms. The VIP waiting section and the Public Security Office is also on this level. In addition the mid-level has direct access to the northern and southern squares. The upper level is the departure level. With a circumference of over 800 meters, the waiting area can fit over 10000 passengers at any given time. Passenger tickets are also validated in this area. The lower level is the arrivals level, which contains various tunnels to exit the station and the waiting area of the Line 1 ...
