Or what about China! There they have recently opened a MagLev train for commercial usage! That German MagLev just keeps on running large circles on a testtrack.

Peter, have you been to the Emsland test track?? On video it looks really cool!

When I went to Shanghai Pudong Airport, the Transrapid wasn't finished yet!

Now they are building another from Munich Airport to Munich HBF (Central Station). When I went to Munich, they didn't even think about the plan yet.

I have not visited it (yet). It is quite a long trip, at least 5 hours so I am waiting for some more money and time. Besides, at the moment it is not really that interesting anyway. They are testing something new I read on their website and it has not been qualified for passenger operations.
At the end of the year it shoud reopen for passengers. Maybe that I'll go next year or the year after.

Heck, if I wait long enough I may not even have to leave the country to get in a Mag Lev! The transport department is considering to implement a Mag Lev line between Schiphol and Groningen (via Amsterdam, Almere and Lelystad).
Another line they are considering is a large circle linking the 4 largest cities in the Netherlands. Amsterdam - Utrecht - Rotterdam - Den Haag (The hague) - Schiphol Airport - Amsterdam.

The plans are far from certain now. Other possibilities are a convential train service and a HST service.

I did not know about the plans for a Munich airport link! That may make a future (long term) plane-spotting trip all the more appealing!

Interestingly the number of pics per railroads are inverse to the number of locos they run*:

UP 7,515

BNSF 5,610

CSX 3,464

(and by a small margin with CSX) NS 3,447.

All rosters are without slugs, fuel tenders and leased units.

Default Center moving east ... sort of

Been awhile since I pounded the server for state data. PA has taken over the #1 spot, trailed by CA and IL. Now this only represents where the people live (or shoot) that submit pics to RP, not where the most trains are.

I would expect the most pics from CA and PA, where the RRs cross mountains and there are a lot of people who live nearby. I am surprised that WV has so few, with the B&O, C&O and N&W mains all crossing that state in beautiful country (for shooting).

PA 10472
CA 7534
IL 7083
KY 4459
WI 4407
TN 4190
OH 3742
NY 3662
VA 3209
GA 3129
NJ 2781
TX 2338
MN 2266
NC 2131
WV 1743

Not surprised about Wisconsin moving up the list...#4, and it's going to blast past Kentucky here pretty soon. (Please don't let it happen!!)

Mr. Bell needs to get out from behind the monitor and get out there! Speaking of our Bluegrass state contributors, I haven't seen much from Caleb Herndon as of late.

Mr. Herndon??

I have a few photos from last Sunday that I really should get around to uploading, along with well over 100 non-rail related photos that I need to sort through. I guess I'm expanding my horizons now.

We'll try not to. That's just wrong if it does. But like Emmett said, it's quality over quanity.

Actually, WI is number 5, and has lost ground, since back on post #7 it was third.

70% of the 100 total North Dakota photos are mine. Otherwise, North Dakota would be #47, ahead of only Rhode Island and Hawaii. Take that, South Dakota!!!!!

And BTW, better watch out Vermont and Idaho...North Dakota is gunning for you next!!!!
