Runtime: 60 mins approx.
Germany: A visit to Bruchsal. Situated just to the north of Karlsruhe in the Rhein Valley, we travel back to May 2000 and witness electric and diesels at work on local and long-distance freight and regional and intercity passenger services. Class 103s are seen as well as classes 143, 110, 101, 120, 140, 151, 152, 218 and 290.
Italy: Our lineside interlude visits the coastal town of Chiavari. A Sunday morning stopover as we see a class 656-hauled passenger train, an electric multiple unit working a local stopper and a track maintenance vehicle going about its business.
Hungary: Class M62 and M41 at work around Lake Balaton. One of the few places in Europe that still sees regular M62 operations we witness these superb Russian-built diesels at work on local passenger and freight trains in this popular tourist region. Also sharing the limelight are the diminutive M41 diesels which sound superb as they toil away with their heavy loads.
Belgium: Lines around Antwerpen and one of the busiest stretches of route in the country as we profile traction around the north of the city and it?s huge port complex. AM73, AM75, AM86 and locos from classes 11, 20, 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, 51, 62, 74, 75, 76, 77 83 and 85 are pictured between 1996 and 2002.
