TRAXX, TRAXX, Everybody runs on and with TRAXX
Author: SvenMolson

Over the years I have heard complaints from American/Canadian fans about the lack of variety in Europe.  Anyone chased a BNSF or UP train as of late?

Across the pond, variety lives!

I appreciate this posting. Never saw the Beacon Leasing. I might have seen that same Alpha trains/Green Cargo pair on a short freight in Kiruna on May 31st. Cargo Net seems to be the dominant carrier at the moment in northern Norway. I know that LKAB IORE is the big player into Narvik but those Kaunis Iron units are sharp. One thing I am not seeing is the sun. It snowed in Narvik on June 1st! Generally chilly, windy and damp so far in Norway. Reporting from Trondheim, Norway (where all the trains are cancelled until Monday due to track maintenance). So I will have to entertain myself with the Gråkall Banen, the most northerly tram in the world.

Not familiar with that tram line.  If you take photos tomorrow, please post some.
Thanks,

I will post when I return to the states. I plan to ride it this afternoon. I have seen four trams, all with different advertising paint schemes except for the vintage chartered tram which was pale yellow and blue.
