Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Spain's talgo trains have automatic gauge-changing. I took a train from Barcelona to Narbonne last year and at Perpignan the train slows down to a snail's pace and you hear these creaking noises as --- I presume --- a slowly-narrowing track pushes the wheels closer together.
