  1. I rode the new trains in Sofia, the whole station in nice, but they only go east and west for now and if I am not mistaken they are going to expand.

  2. gee, it would be nice if Americans could make these cars. Sadly the US is totally F’d as an industrial nation. They need a different President…and quick.

    • Wabtec/Motive Power, Caterpillar/Progress Rail, Bombardier, they still make locomotives and all.

      This isn’t the golden age of american railways, but they are out there.

    • Need a President with BALLS, doesn’t matter which party.
      Every Republican leader has let the business leaders gut the American industrial world to increase profits! They live and die by the ‘let the market decide’ mantra. Unfortunately, the market is led by greed not intelligence!
      The Democrats don’t encourage expansion of the industrial base. They keep trying to expand the pool of consumers & their spending in hopes the suppliers will expand. Too bad the industrial leaders are more interested in the size of their fortunes not whether the country will exist tomorrow!

  3. Goddamn Russians and their shoddy equipment already breaks down.
    After only a month of use the transmission broke down and the whole batch had to be returned to Russia to get fixed. They do not manufacture the transmissions, only buy from Siemens and obviously hadn’t tested the system enough.

  4. Er Philadelphia just made an entire set of cars for it’s own train network. Stupid Foxnews viewers…so brainwashed.
