A scene, probably taken a few decades ago, of this marker near the line on the Nordlandsbanen which runs 729 km (453 miles) between Trondheim and Bodø. See earlier posts.

"Eiden operates two lines, the Eizan Main Line, which departs from Demachiyanagi Station near the center of Kyoto for Mount Hiei, and the Kurama Line, which travels to the KURAMA & KIBUNE area. There are many locations along the lines with stunning nature and rich history, and the scenery is a complete change from the city center. One of the delights of Kyoto is how dramatically the scenery changes from season to season. It is well worth the trip for such seasonal features as Kawadoko (dining at the riverside) in summer and the colors of the trees in fall."
The two lines are in standard gauge and are 5.6 and 8.8 km long (total 14.4 km) and powered by 600 Volts DC from overhead.
The newest Hiei train runs from Demachiyanagi to Yase-Hieizanguchi station

Someone's glamor photo idea with a CD (Czech Railways) now withdrawn 451 class 4-car electric trainset. A total of 51 of these were built in 1964 and used on commuter trains around Prague.
The traction motors produced 1320 kW (1760 hp) and the sets operated on 3,000 Volts DC from overhead. A set had 332 second class seats.

Just to the north of the Khandallah Station visible in the background, a pic by an Evening Post photographer, perhaps just intended as decoration. For lots more, see the book Railway Electrification in Australia and New Zealand.

Since 1945 Glatz has been Klodzko in Poland and these are probably on the line that continues into the hill country eventually crossing into Czechia (Czech Republic). It's named as the Hollental although that won't be the Polish name.

This is a metre gauge 14.1 km line opened in 1910, electrified in 1914, still functioning. The route starts at Berlin S-Bahn station Friedrichshagen, located on line S3 and makes its way to the town of Rüdersdorf, terminating at a loop located at Marienstraße.
The tramcar in the pic was built in 1964 Eigenbau/LEW. Transferred to track building operation in 1985.
