Austria: a two-part section beginning with the country's newest diesel locomotives, the class 2016, at work east of Graz; while more traditional traction in the shape of the 1970s class 2143 locos are seen at work near St.Pölten.
Denmark: Mainline action near Middelfart and Padborg. Intercity electric and diesel units are seen at speed as well as local services and freight. Locos include class MZ and the new 3000-class Co-Co electrics. At Padborg we see a considerable variety including visiting German locos & an Austrian class 1116 electric on hire to Dispolok.

The 'Nyírségi kisvasút' line to the north of Nyíiregyyhaza is featured including spectacular scenes where both local roads and railway tracks are obscured by snow. Class Mk48 diesels dominate.
Belgium: we call in to Merelbeke station as we witness a variety of electric multiple units and locomotives at work on a mixture of mainline services. We feature the increasingly scarce class 62 diesels, a French BB67400 on freight and new M6 double-deck passenger stock, as well as much more.
