nice shot djmarrs, nice to see more angle on the European locomotive.

In general, British locomotives and rolling stock differ from many or most European equivalents as we have a tighter loading gauge to cater for our Victorian tunnels etc. It makes our railway system look somewhat unique and also means that standard locos, including the US/Canadian built class 66s, have to be redesigned to run on British rails. Other trains, passenger EMUs and DMUs for example, are normally specially designed for the British system.

One other point of interest is that in this context, "British" means only the mainland of Great Britain. Ireland, including the north, which is part of The United Kingdom, uses a 5ft 3 inch/1600mm broad gauge so the two systems are totally incompatible.

Thanks for the info John, I'm new at this modern train/locomotive stuff, and always appreciate the input.

BNSF 6982 leads the northbound B-OIGTAC14A with an interesting addition to the consist that is heading north for rebuild.

My first post in this section...
I've just been admiring some of these shots, and I really forgot how much I like trains...
there are some fantastic shots, as well as the history behind some of these. Thanks all for the posts and information.
Anyways here's one from this past weekend in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

These are from about a year ago shortly after I got my T3I. Did a little sharpening and color adjusting using the basic software that came with the camera. This was the first time I ever attempted train shots. I think they turned out half decent:oops::)

Not a great shot, but yeah. It's always cool to see visiting power.
