Are these the most dangerous railways in the world?
From the devilish peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the temperamental waters of the Indian Ocean, these trains cross some of the world's most spectacular and downright dangerous landscapes. If you can handle hair-raising bends and gut-clenching drops, come take a ride on the world's most dangerous railways.

Kuranda Scenic Railway, Australia
The Kuranda Scenic Railway is a fantastic, and ever so slightly terrifying, way to explore the landscapes of Queensland, Australia. A haven for nature lovers, the train passes through an area that is home to roughly 200 species of tropical plants and trees, such as orchids and exotic palms.

Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe train, South Africa
This South African railway takes you on a picturesque ride through the country's famous Garden Route, with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean. Although the line has been closed since 2009, the government is planning to reopen the once popular track.

Cumbers and Toltec Scenic Railroad, Colorado
Running through incredible scenery from New Mexico to Colorado, the Cumbers & Toltec Scenic Railroad is a route on the US circuit that can't be missed. Crossing suspended bridges and hugging mountainsides, the train runs along the same route taken by miners hoping to make their fortune in the California Gold Rush.

Tren de las nubes, Argentina
The Tren de las nubes is an obligatory pit stop for anyone who finds themselves in the north of Argentina. Literally translated, the route is called the train in the clouds, as it crosses the Cordillera de los Andes to the Chilean border with views that will take your breath away.

White Pass and Yukon Route, Alaska and Yukon (Canada)
Alaska invites you to step aboard the White Pass and Yukon Route, constructed to clear the way for gold mining in Klondike. With breathtaking views over unspoiled Alaskan landscapes, the tracks now attract their fair share of adventurous tourists.

Chennai Rameswaram Route, India
With one of the most formidable rail networks in the world, it's no surprise that India also holds one of its scariest train journeys. Located in the southeast of the country, the Chennai Rameswaram Route runs directly above the waters of the Indian Ocean, crossing bridges built into the seabed.
8/11 SLIDES © wiki
Georgetown Loop Railroad, Colorado
We return to Colorado for this next railway line, which runs one of the most historic routes in America. The track was built at the end of the 1800s through the Rocky Mountains, one of the most important mining sites at the time. Suspended more than 650 feet in the air at certain points, the train guarantees superb views of Colorado's scenery.
9/11 SLIDES © wiki
Death Railway, Thailand
As its name may suggest, Death Railway is one of the most terrifying train journeys in Thailand. Linking capital Bangkok to Rangoon, the track was constructed by the Japanese during the World War II. It didn't actually get its name from the precarious tracks it runs on, but rather from the 90,000 civilians and 16,000 Allied prisoners of war who were forced to construct it.

Minami Aso Route, Japan
Even the Land of the Rising Sun has a terrifying train journey to propose. The Minami Aso Railway crosses the area surrounding Mount Aso - Japan's most active volcano - in the southern region of Kumamoto.
11/11 SLIDES © youtube
Argo Gede Train, Indonesia
Our final stop is in Indonesia, where the Argo Gede Train runs across one of the most lush landscapes in the world. On the three-hour trip from Jakarta to Bandung, the train passes over a spectacular valley on the Cikurutug Bridge suspended 1,970 feet above the jungle floor.

******** Body Shells of WAP-7 and Vectron Engine of Poland Railways are same ***********
The Siemens Vectron is a new engine,produced by Siemens available in electric or diesel flavour. This looks like a manufacturer's demonstrator, and is an entirely new shape on Poland's railways and if you look at the "Livery" of this engine you can see that this engine has a "RESEMBLANCE" with our WAP-7 Locomotove just the difference is the "Front and back portion" of this Locomotive. This Engine is very popular in Poland railways.
Attached Image:
Siemens Vectron Engine
Image Link: click here
In the attached image the empty train on the electrified track (right) moves more quickly than the diesel-hauled train of full coal wagons. Looking south from Kórnicka crossing towards W-wa Jeziorki station of Poland Railways.
Observations of mine in the attached image of Vectron Engine with this blog:
Please note that this blog is posted here just to show the "Similarity in Livery"(i.e Body shells) of the Vectron Engine produced by Siemens for Poland Railway with our WAP-7 Locomotive produced by CLW for Indian Railways. It is also to be noted that the track and Electric Posts of Poland Railway is also similar to Indian Railways. This Vectron Engine has "Disc Brakes"(The term "Disc Brakes" have already discussed by me in my blog) in it's Wheels like WAP-5 Locomotive of Indian Railways.

Image Link: click here
Actually this picture has a similarity(The rail track and it's surroundings) with the "Grand Chord Line" of Eastern Railway of Indian Railway I think.

Nov 25 2014 (01:08)   12633/Chennai Egmore - Kanyakumari SF Express

Bahadur Fauji Comfortably Floyd~   1721 blog posts   32 correct pred (71% accurate)
Entry# 1286205            Tags   Past Edits
❝ Yesterday(19/nov/2014) My mother and I, were returning home from ‪#‎Chennai‬ in Kanyakumari Express (12633) in 2nd A/C coach, we boarded the train at Tambaram. There was this group of men(around 5 or 6 men) who were already seated in our adjoining cabin. By their dressing and their manner of speech we assumed they where some local politicians. As soon As the train left the station these people closed the curtains and started to consume alcohol right there, without any shame or even the slightest guilt that there were kids in the train. The T.T.E (whose name I do not know, as he was not wearing his coat or his ID) turned a blind eye to this.
There was a young lady
with her little daughter seated in the side berth of that same cabin, to whom these people kept offering food(so we obviously assumed that she was their relative, and was travelling with them).But soon she moved to our cabin asking if she could please stay here as she wasn’t feeling comfortable there. On enquiring further she told us that like the camel in the dessert story, these people had occupied her berth and had asked her to move to the side berth which wasn't even theirs, and when she asked the T.T.E to help her out he just said that she’ll have to talk it out with those drunken idiots and not bother him.
So my mom and I ,we secretly took pictures of them drinking and also called up railway helpline and railway police authorities.Eventually at Vilipuram railway station S.I. Pon Balasubramaniam came in, He in all his authority just scolded us for complaining to the helpline and just told that those people won’t create any problems and when I demanded some solid action he said that we’ll have to go with him and write an official complaint and only then will he take action.(Yeah sure, My mom and I, two ladies travelling alone should get down at an unknown station and miss the train so that the culprits can go on and cause problems).And the most frustrating part was that he didn’t even bother to warn those people or even talk to them.
So, once again we called up the helpline (the lady on the phone was very sympathetic towards our situation) who told us to write an official complaint and using that they will de-board the offenders. This time the T.T.E understanding the weight of the situation offered us help, and even provided seating arrangement for that lady and her kid ,and also he obliged to my demand to give the offenders seat numbers so that I can file it in my official complaint. Initially, He gave us just 4 numbers then when we probed further he gave us the rest.
And so at Viruthachalam, railway police arrived and even this time they just got the complaint letter from us and left. Not a word was spoken to the culprits. Those men having understood that we couldn’t do anything to them even after our hardest efforts just kept laughing at us, at our helplessness. And all of us, the ones who dared to raise our voice against the wrong had to spend a restless night worried that they might hurt us in retaliation. And to top it all off, these worthless idiots had the courage to consume alcohol at the crack of dawn once again and scream proudly that they can’t be hurt or punished.
I am someone who had this unshakable belief in justice that no matter what happens justice will always win. But the indifference shown by the T.T.E, the SI and other police officials has made me question my beliefs. In an era where we can get almost everything at the click of the mouse or touch of a button, I felt so helpless. We can “Be the change”, but if there is no effect who will be ready to act? ❞
