I'm going for a week in Warsaw in late august but i have some questions: 1) It's forbidden to take Photos or videos of trains (includes Metro and Trams) in poland? Is reqired a special permit? I ask this because in many countries railfanning is forbidden unless you've a special permit from the railway company. By the way my equipment will be a simple entry-level handcam. No tripods. And i'll made photos by a public accessible area (like station platforms). 2) Where can i find EN57s in the Warsaw area? 3) Is there any method to completely avoid the Siemens Inspiro train and thus the Whole Line 2 Metro? 4) What are the differences (in terms of services, lines and fares) between KM (Koleje Mazowieckie) and SKM (Szybka Kolej Miejska) ?
bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Travel: Tips, Planning & MemoriesI am planning a short, post-Christmas, New Years holiday in central/southern Europe and will be in the Zurich area for a couple of days. I have allocated a full day for full-on trainwatching (no sightseeing), and am seeking some suggestions. My parameters for train watching spots: 1. locations within approx. 1 train hour of Zurich Central Station 2. mainline with heavy passenger traffic, preferably with freight traffic too, say 15~20tph ea. direction 3. good trackside vantage points with few obstructions like signs, overpasses, fencing. Station platforms are OK. *Background scenery not necessary, though existence of such is a plus 4. preferably some loco-hauled passenger trains, such as Re4/4 pulling older coaching stock, if it still exists I am thinking of visiting two or three spots for around 90min each, depending on the time needed to get to them as well as availability of daylight. I have already some places in mind: A. Olten- not so much for photography, but to observe SBB railway operations at this node. B. Some point on the approaches to the Gotthard Line (Zug?, Schwyz?), heavy pax and freight trafffic. Your thoughts appreciated.
