  1. An SBB RABDe 500 on InterCity service ICN882 to Zürich HB overtaking InterRegio IR2332 (Locarno to Basel SBB) on the parallel track. Surely something you won't see everyday on any railway, or is this common on Swiss railways? This video is also a great way to take a close look at the tilting mechanism of the RABDe 500 in practice.
  2. Well, unlike most itineraries posted which are about Japan trips, living in Japan, mine is Europe-based. A bit shorter than my previous more touristic forays to the continent, it is concentrated almost exclusively on train riding and watching/photography (pretty much like my travels in Japan). Lodgings are typically business hotels near the main stations, similar to my Toyoko Inn travel pattern (though about 50~60% more expensive). July-Aug. 10 days. Solo. 1st day- Arrival at Munich early evening nonstop flight from Haneda AP. Train to Nuremberg on Munich-Nuremberg HSL (I want to catch

  7. I 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 no
