TRAINS WORLD

Updated on August 12, 2010

The 18th century’s first steam rail engine an invention of George Stephenson has undergone many miles of innovation to reach the level of what is today.

The train journey is one of most pleasurable journey, yet sometimes thrilling which will always leave pages of memory behind. So I have republished some of  great train pics from the net.

Interiors and facilities

We are now noticing the enhanced hospitality in the railway tourism and the fastest ever trains between the metro cities, luxury cabs with all five star accommodation, pleasing staff available for our requirements round the clock and railways are becoming a part of the latest electronic developments like internet mobiles and other techniques. It is really a revolution.

Safety

It is great to see all the developments from way back to 18th century's steam engine and ordinary facilities and todays bullet trains and aristocratic star rated and custom made facilities. We are so lucky for that and so proud to have all these.

Perhaps, the big question is about the safety. When we question on the safety, few things will come in to the picture. Track safety, accident free, terror free and also we should notify the luggage lifting. In few countries external elements enter in to the train and robe the passengers and with out their notice lift the luggage also.

Though the government bodies are taking all the precautionary steps but still we should more careful during these journeys.
