Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Eurotrib evolves into a trainspotting site???  :-)

How about this one? Even though it's an interior shot, a globe-travelling railroad enthusiast will be able to identify it without difficulty...

Looks like a North American dome car, but sadly I am only a Europe-travelling railroad enthusiast :-)

It is on the Panama Railroad, and is indeed a U.S. dome car. The cars are refitted with luxurious wood interiors and are used by tourists and businesspersons commuting from Panama City to the free trade zone in Colon. The locomotives are old Amtrak units, and the freight rolling stock consists almost entirely of container unit trains.
