Trains from my region:

It's called the ''Wadloper'' and it is powered by a diesel engine. They are out of service now, they have been replaced by this one:

Image

Image

I have no idea what the brand of these trains are! The first one is called ''Wadloper'' because we live close to the ''Wad'' (region in front of our coast) and 'loper' means walker. But like I said before: have no clue about the brands. :?

I'd post some train pictures, but there are few trains that are still in use where I live (even though I live next to the railroad).
