I believe that the oldest ones in service right now are on the Island Line on the Isle of Wight, which is part of the South West Trains franchise. Not to be confused with the Isle of Wight Stream Railway, the Island Line is a regular part of the UK rail network run as normal services. Because of the low ceiling of the Ryde Tunnel, the Island Line has a much ...

I checked the Belgian railway site for you and they mention that folding bikes are free of charge. The Flanders railway company 'de Lijn' has a mention of bikes on their Dutch language site, in short you can take a folded bike for free if you do not bother other passengers but no full size bikes at all. Als u de andere reizigers niet hindert, mag u wel ...

The best way to get from Gare de Nice Ville to your hotel is to take the tram. Since it's late at night, you probably don't want to walk the whole way. But, you will probably have to wait at a tram stop. As you exit the train station, turn left and a short walk east is the "Gare Thiers" tram stop. The tram runs until just after midnight (at about 20-30 ...

The railway structure both in terms of pricing and network is very different in the Alpine countries than in Germany. Broadly speaking in these countries, it's expected that passengers will not plan their journey based on price, but that they'll just show up when they want to travel and take the next appropriate train. While there is some tariff discretion ...

You can find the schedules via the website of the Serbian Railways. Note that you have to use the Serbian spelling of Belgrade, i.e. BEOGRAD:

I entered your found train into the German travel site, and found that same train. Then I clicked the ⇅ arrows, (the ones that reverse the direction of search) and the results were alike. One day train and one overnight. 11:05 to 17:32 and 23:48 to 5:52. I would suggest you to run the site for a day you want to travel, I checked it for a couple of days ...

Since you are using the Dutch transport service this often, you may consider buying an anonymous OV-chipcard (Dutch: "OV chipkaart"). Have it in with you and check-in once you are about to take the train. As indicated in its website its [current] price is €7,50. PROS: You can load a lot of credit once - say €50. This way, you will not have to buy the ...

I just took the train a first class sleeper from Yerevan to Batumi and enjoyed it. The car was about 1/3 full so it was quite and comfortable. The train trip is a little longer but you can us the internet service as far as either the Georgia country line or Tblishi. It worked very well and customs was a breeze. Just answer a few questions provided your ...

While the previous answers justify the reason for it not being there, you can find it. At least for ÖBB trains, head over to the Fahrplan (i.e. the Timetable). These can typically be found around the stations or on the platforms. You will find that every train, even the S-Bahn, has a unique Zug-Nummer (Train Number). Source (Ignore the yellow circle. It ...

Sloterdijk was a village out of Amsterdam but has now been gulped up by the city and is part of it. Just like the villages around London are part of Greater London. It is within the city bus system area and on those buses you can use the travel passes for the city. And depending on where you want to be in Amsterdam, the bus might well be faster than going ...

I don't know any other day ticket that would fit the bill but you can go from Sloterdijk station to many places in the city with the subway/metro or tramways and to Amsterdam Centraal with a bus. So the issue is one of commercial/administrative policy (trains are operated by another company), not merely the fact that Sloterdijk would be out of the GVB day ...

At Swiss train stations, there are blue information tables on the platforms that tell, for each long distance train, the train number in addition to the exact composition. They're usually located next to the yellow time tables (apologies for potato quality): Of course, you also find the information in paper timetables, the online timetable and mobile ...

If you know the type of the train, the departure time and the destination you can uniquely identify a train — I don't know of a single case where two trains to the same destination via different routes depart at the same time. In those cases, the platform is always shown in electronic journey planners (and often on your ticket). If the scheduled platform is ...

The Havatas bus runs 24 hours. But the bus only goes to Taksim which from your timing you won't be able to get the metro to Sultanahmet from Taksim Square. If the hotel that you will be in has a taxi service I'd suggest you to call them up and order a taxi. Or else, getting a taxi from the airport would be around 100TL. I took taxi all the time when I was ...

To get from the train station to the hotel, the most direct way is actually to walk 1.2 km (15 min). If you do want to take the bus, you will have to walk to Rue de Maréchal Joffre (10 min, 750m) and take the N5 bus. From there, you can walk 3 min (280m) to Hotel Wilson. (source) To get from Hotel Wilson to NCE, you can walk 300m to Station J.C. Bermond and ...

When you arrive in Amsterdam you will find (if still there) one ticket machine in the area where you collect your luggage. Which is very nice if you have to wait for your luggage to arrive, but not worth waiting any longer than you need for your luggage. When you leave the secure area you follow the signs for the train and you arrive in the main arrivals ...

Yes you can certainly buy them online on the Dutch Railways website. It's really just a train that happens to connect the airport, so you book it like any other train and print it at home before you go, make sure you carry an ID with the same name on the ticket

There is a plan to get the higher speed train between Riga and Tartu Russian. Currently though there is a way to use the train to get from Riga to Tartu but it involves 2 different legs: Riga -> Valga and Valga -> Tartu. And from what I can see it's a lot slower then a bus.

A one-month pass from Warabi to Suidobashi is 9050 yen, or 300 yen/day. You can get off anywhere in the middle (Akihabara, Ueno) for free and if you ride farther (Ginza/Shinbashi) the remaining fare is calculated as if you entered at the nearest station (to your destination). A bonus hint: getting to Big Site by train is expensive. There is some bus ...

Is there such a thing as a one month railpass for Tokyo, and is it worth the price if I take the train an average 5 times a day? No, as far as I know there are only commuter tickets, which are valid only for a specific route. Note also that there are multiple companies that operate public transportation in Tokyo, and each has their own tickets; there ...

It may be touristy, but has regular scheduled operation: the Snaefell Mountain Railway on the Isle of Man.

Children under the age of 6 are carried without any charge on Indian Railways. Though, it is always better to give details of children while booking a ticket, you will not run into any problem while traveling. You will not be able to add the name of the child after booking the ticket. Changing the name of the passengers is allowed in certain cases with a ...

From my experience travelling in China. I usually go to local agency to buy train tickets and they will sort everything out for you. I bought tickets from Beijing to Shanghai before so I can speak from my experience. I got the tickets before I travelled 2-3 days because I speak little Chinese and I find myself stranded trying to explain what I want at the ...

Can I take the train, instead of going by car? Would this cause me any trouble later during the trip, especially regarding visa issues? It will not be a problem as long as your 'invitation' still sync's up with your travel dates. Also, it will not prevent you from getting visas in the future.
