1- In the U.K. how can you tell at a station if someone is a train spotter?

2- This London station is said to have at peak periods one train rolling thru it every 13 seconds! That's why they call it Britain's Busiest Railway station.

3- Where would you hop the Tren Eskro?

4- What is Europe's highlest in altitude train station?

5- What is the difference on overnibght trains between the Sleeping Car and a Couchette Car (types of accommodations in both)?

6- Florence has two secondary train stations which some trains only stop at, not going into the deadend Santa Maria Novella town center station - what are the names of those other two stations?

7- Paris has six main railway termini - serving so-called 'Grandes Lignes" of long-distance and suburban trains - name then as found on a map in clockwise order.

8- The Eurostar train London to Paris/Brussels has how four stations they train may stop at inbetween London and Paris/Brussels - name them?

9- In Germany what is the difference between a U-Bahn train and an S-Bahn train in urban areas?

10- In Italy there are three types of faster trains:
