San Francisco Municipal Railway - MUNI MetroMUNI Metro is a 50km light rail system serving the city of San Francico, CA. The system is composed of both upgraded streetcar sections and new built sections and the central main line is underground. Trains are composed of 2 or 4 cars and run automatically in the underground section. They were manufactured in Italy by Breda.

MUNI Metro è un sistema di metro leggere che servono la città di San Francisco, California. Ci sono in totale 7 linee che corrono in parte su tratte tranviarie modernizzate, in parte su tratte in sede protetta di nuova coistruzione e in un tunnel sotto alla centrale Market Street. I treni sono composti da 2 o 4 carrozze e viaggiano automaticamente nella tratta sotterranea. Il materiale è stato costruito da AnsaldoBreda.

In questo scatto un treno di 4 carrozze in servizio sulla linea N "Judah" transita sotto il Bay Bridge su The Embarcadero. Questa sezione è una delle ultime estensioni della rete e bisogna ammettere che è decisamente una bella relizzazione. I treni infatti possono correre su una sede completamente separata dal traffico e ad una velocità nettamente maggiore (i semafori sono sincronizzati in modo da mostrare sempre la via libera al treno). Le stazioni inoltre hanno tutte i marciapiedi alti per facilitare l'incarrozzamento.

All of Amtrak's preferred stock is owned by the U.S. federal government. The members of its board of directors are appointed by the President of the United States and are subject to confirmation
by the United States Senate. Common stock was issued in 1971 to railroads that contributed capital and equipment; its current holders consider the stock to be worthless but
declined a 2002 buy-out offer by Amtrak.
Amtrak employs nearly 19,000 people. It operates passenger service on 21,000 miles (34,000 km) of track primarily owned by freight railroads connecting
500 destinations in 46 states. Some routes serve Canada. In fiscal year 2007, Amtrak served 25.8 million passengers, representing
five straight years of record ridership. Despite this recent growth, the United States still has one of the lowest inter-city rail usages in the developed world.

Conrail - Consolidated Rail Corporation


Conrail / Wikipedia

The Consolidated Rail Corporation, commonly known as Conrail (reporting mark CR), was the primary Class I railroad in the Northeast U.S. between 1976 and 1999. The federal government created it to take over the potentially profitable lines of bankrupt carriers, including the Penn Central Transportation Company and Erie Lackawanna Railway. With the benefit of regulatory changes, Conrail began to turn a profit in the 1980s and was turned over to private investors in 1987. The two remaining Class I railroads in the East, CSX Transportation and the Norfolk Southern Railway (NS), agreed in 1997 to split the system approximately equally, returning rail freight competition to the Northeast by essentially undoing the 1968 merger of the Pennsylvania Railroad and New York Central Railroad that created Penn Central. Following Surface Transportation Board approval, CSX and NS took control in August 1998, and on June 1, 1999, began operating their portions of Conrail.
