Capitalstar by ZCochrane Capitalstar by ZCochrane
In my opinion, the class 378 "Capitalstar" by Bombardier is the best-looking non-highspeed EMU in the London area. Which is very qualified praise, of course, but had there been a model of this available, I'd probably have bought that instead of what I ended up buying.

This train is reaching Gospel Oak with a westbound service.

Nice shot :) I'll admit that as boxes-on-wheels go, this one isnt too bad looking. I've heard the ride quality is meant to be a bit atrocious though on older track...

I've only ridden it on newer and rebuilt parts of the network so far, whe the ride quality is perfectly acceptable. Of course, I have no idea what it is like at higher speeds, but that is not the really the idea of these things either.

Sure that's eastbound? I think that's westbound, due to the fact the continuation of the Gospel Oak - Barking line cannot be seen in the background, and the curvature of the track as I can recall points at it being a westbound train to Richmond.

Yes, of course, thank you! It was coming from the east, not going there, and ai smehow mixed that up while writing the comment. It's fixed now.

I could see why you got it confused, in Germany trains normally run on the right track, in the UK, on the left, am I right?

The UK's DMU's was a thin I really had to get used to, her in "railway has wirez and gizmos everywhere" called switzerland we don't have such things, we have flirts which are even better looking but as the TRAXXes they go for boring

Yes, the British trains are quite unique. With their general design of high floor andnkeeping everything under thenfloor, they are far more like subway trains here than like continental EMUs and DMUs.
