  British Rail Class 485 - tScholars.com (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab-3.cs.princeton.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The British Rail Class 485 (or 4Vec) electrical multiple units were original built for the London Electric Railway from 1923-31 as their 'Standard' tube stock.
They were purchased by British Rail in 1967 and transported to the Isle of Wight to work 'mainline' services on the newly electrified Ryde to Shanklin line.
The replacements came from the 2-car Class 483, which were also rebuilt from former London Underground stock, namely 1938 tube stock.

 British Rail Class 423 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The British Rail Class 423 (or 4Vep) electrical multiple units were built by BR at York Works from 1967-74, although the MBSOs and TSOs of the first 20, 7701-7720, were constructed at Derby Works.
The units were reclassified as Class 423/9 (or 4Vop) and renumbered in the range 3901-3919.
Although first introduced in 2002, this did not initially affect the Class 423 as the older 'Phase 1' Class 421 units were withdrawn first, due to their age and lower seating capacity.

 British Rail Class 303 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The British Rail Class 303 electric multiple units, also known as "Blue Train" units, were introduced in 1960 for the electrification of the North Clyde and the Cathcart Circle lines in Strathclyde.
The class was built in two batches; units 303001-035 were built 1959-60 (nominally for the North Clyde) and units 303036-091 were built 1960-61 (nominally for the Cathcart Circle).
The Class 303 fleet were nicknamed the "Blue Trains" upon their introduction, owing to the striking Caledonian Blue livery.

 TGV - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
Use of continuous welded rails in place of shorter, jointed rails means that the ride is comfortable at high speeds, without the usual "clickety-clack" vibrations induced by rail joints.
Upon privatisation of British Rail by the UK Government, the sets were bought by London and Continental Railways whose subsidiary Eurostar (U.K.) Ltd. is managed by a consortium of companies made up of the National Express Group (40%), SNCF (35%), SNCB (15%) and British Airways (10%).
The third rail system will become superfluous in 2007 when the second phase of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link is completed between London and the Channel Tunnel, as it uses 25 kV, 50 Hz AC exclusively.

Despite the setback in al-Kut, the British took Baghdad in Mareh of 1917, and Mosul was eaptured in November of 1918 as an armistice ended World War I. All told, it took the British four years and over 90,000 easualties to conquer the area approximately encompassing modern Iraq.
During the British period of direct rule in the early twentieth century, Iraq's tribal areas were scattered throughout the countryside and three quarters of the tribes lived in these rural areas.
While the British did not want to allow the formation of Iraqi security forces that could be a threat to British interests in Iraq, they nonetheless wanted the Iraqi forces to eventually evolve into an army and police force that were capable of becoming self reliant.

 British Rail Class 376 information information - Search.com (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab-3.cs.princeton.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
It is a derivative of the Class 375 Electrostar designed specifically for use on the high-volume metro routes around London, England operated by Southeastern.
The Class 376's doors are wider to allow more passengers to board at once, and are metro-style sliding doors which are faster and more reliable than the Class 375's plug doors, although they do not provide as much insulation for heating and cooling purposes.
Class 376 units are five carriages long, and unlike the Class 375, have full-width cabs instead of gangways at the ends of the train; it is therefore not possible to walk between two coupled Class 376 units.

Rail campaigners expect the SRA to deliver a vision of what the rail network should be and give the competing companies help and direction to achieve a nationally integrated system which works for the passenger.
Some integration in the rail industry would be very welcome – especially after the well-known disasters that have recently illustrated how fragmented our system is. Having a European company on board with the biggest freight company in the UK may well help rectify this fragmentation.
Under British Rail, rail freight was declining, after BR abandoned its ‘speedlink’ scheme of moving freight.

High-speed rail is separate from other Amtrak service changes discussed in recent years, including a Milwaukee-to-Fond du Lac passenger route with a possible stop in Waukesha County.
State lawmakers last year approved the Passenger Rail Station Improvement Grant as a mechanism to help communities or developers with "construction or rehabilitation of passenger railroad stations along existing or proposed rail passenger routes." Officials in Sun Prairie have their own idea about using the money.
He explained that Sun Prairie's proposal does not involve high- speed rail, which he said was a preference for the grant program, while Brookfield's plan to relocate a railroad company does not clearly fulfill the requirement for "construction or rehabilitation" of a rail station.
