The type of 8-wheel steam locomotive in most of your pictures is know as the 4-4-0, also known as the American. 4-4-0 only describes the wheel pattern, not design features like the conical chimney (to catch sparks on wood-burning locomotives) and the large cowcatcher. Still, this configuration was most popular in the U.S. from the 1860s to the 1880s, which ...

Travelling from London to Paris by Eurostar, you'll go through checkin, then security, then French Immigration. You won't see anyone from the UKBA, the only people checking your passport + stamping it if required will be French. Travelling from Paris (or Lille) to London by Eurostar, you go through checking, then French exit Immigration checks, then UK ...

According to the rules of transport (Beförderungsbedingungen), section 6.3.3 you can show the ticket on a smartphone, tablet or laptop as long as the backlight is turned on and the barcode is shown in full-size: Ersatzweise kann in Zügen das Online-Ticket auch auf dem Display eines mobilen Endgerätes über ein pdf-Anzeigeprogramm vorgezeigt werden, ...

The "Express" here is for express buses, which serve parts of the "outer" boroughs that are not well served by subways. These buses have a higher fare. Express trains in the subway system do not have a higher fare. Your fare card is checked when you swipe it in the turnstile to enter the system. Once you're in, you're in. You can stay as long as you ...

It means the station is closed. In this case, the station was closed after it was destroyed on September 11, 2001, and it has not yet been reopened. I believe it will be reopened sometime in the next few years as construction is completed on the site.

I am not sure if you have read the Google translation you are linking to, because you're misquoting it. First of all, the minimum suggested transfer time between regional trains on the Trondheim - Oslo - Kristiansand lines (as in your case) is 60 minutes. The 30 minutes you refer to is the suggested transfer time between "other trains". The text does not ...

I have traveled in Norway on the train network and found it to be exceptionally punctual. However, the journey time from Trondheim to Oslo is around 7 hours, and you only need one small problem to crop up to end up having to pay for a extra segment to Kristiensand. The NSB website shows that it is a possible connection, but flags a warning. Looking at the ...

No, there is only cargo rail service between from Antananarivo to Antsirabe. The only public transportation options are taxi-brousse and plane.

The Mu is actually a 4 and a M. It's a special fare if you book four seats around a table at once. The fare shown is for one seat but you must book all four (e.g. for a group or family). If you have a party of four people, it can be a very good deal but you can also choose that to have the comfort of seating on your own. P is “promo” (“discount”), ...

If there is no exit available to you, you can alway use the 'i' (for information) station next to the gates (shown on the right in the picture). After hitting the blue button, you should get in touch with a person stationed somewhere else, who should be able to help you.

There is no check on the train like there used to be between other EU countries or Switzerland before Schengen. There is a full airport-like passport and security check at the train station so you will get Schengen entry/exit stamps every time (I don't know exactly how UKBA tracks exits but I don't think they stamp passports on exit). In fact, standards ...

edit: phoog beat me to the short answer, but offers less background. If you look up the 1 Train at the MTA website, you'll see that it does not stop at Cortlandt St as that station is temporarily closed. After the September 11 attacks, a number of subway stations were closed. Their treatment in subsequent maps is presented clearly on Brian Abbott's blog: ...

Other answers show that with daytime trains you can just barely make it in one day if you drive the last leg from Valencia, or you can have a layover in Paris or Barcelona. The former Ellipsos train-hotel service between France and Spain was discontinued in December 2013 when the high-speed train line was opened. However it is still possible to leave ...

If you really want to make it in one go it should be possible. According to Eurail the fastest itinerary you could follow from Antwerp-Central to Valencia-Terminal is the following. With this itinerary it would take you 13 hours and 45 minutes to get to Valencia. You can see at the bottom that this trip can be taken on a daily basis. It doesn't matter ...

Long-distance and suburban trains terminate at the Roman Termini train station. From the train station, you need to change to the Metro station. Metro trains run undergound on dedicated tracks. When you disembark the train, follow the white-on-red M signs towards the Metro station. In the Metro station, you'll find ticket vending machines, then fare gates ...

I contacted East Coast directly and below is the response: If a Railcard cannot be produced at the time of purchase or at any ticket examination then the full undiscounted fare will be payable as if no ticket or Railcard were held. In addition to this, a valid Railcard must be held for the full duration of both the outward and return portions of period ...

Thanks for your clarification. Looking at a combination of the east coast, network card, and national rail websites I believed that the restrictions that east coast impose as you referred to are time related. You linked to this page http://www.network-railcard.co.uk/terms/ which shows that east cost trains might have restrictions, I then reffered to the ...

It is possible to get from Bucharest to Sarajevo on train - likely requiring a rather roundabout route via Budapest, Hungary and Zagreb, Croatia or even Salzburg, Austria an thus easily taking as much as 48h. A map of the railway lines in Europe may be found on the interrail website and their timetable/trip planner will provide connections and times. ...

Now, I don't have an official source for you, but by news and some of the decent work Lalu Prasad Yadav actually did for the railways, I can tell you that you should ideally be expected to pay the fare difference and nothing else. This is of course only true if there are actually any empty berths available in the sleeper class. If the TTE is corrupt, he ...
