North America 

North America still reigns supreme for freight traffic on rails. Europe and Asia pale in comparison. However where the US may have the rail, it does not have much for passengers like the other continents.

Amtrak operates the national intercity passenger rail system. Amtrak's pride and joy is the high speed Northeast Corridor between Washington DC and Boston. Electrification is complete between the two cities. The new Acela Service started in December 2000. Another corridor for Amtrak is in the Pacific Northwest. It does not have the speed or frequency as the NE. However, it does have unique tilting equipment known as Talgos.

Then there are the freight railroads. On the West Coast the big railroads are down to just the Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe.

There are special trains that run on mainline rails and excursion railways. This includes SP4449, UP Challenger, Olympic Special, and many tourist railways. For preserved railroad equipment, please see the railway museum section of this website

A new section under development with focus on railway stations with their unique architecture and history.
