You wonít find the Japanese Shinkansen in this gallery. Therefore an extra gallery was created to show Japanese rail traffic. This apply also for Sri Lankan, whose pictures are presented in their national gallery. The pictures of German, Slovakian, Slovenian and Croatian railway companies are shown as well in additional galleries. Since the railways also like to operate in cross-border traffic, it always applies that the pictures are shown in the gallery of the country in which the locomotive or the vehicle is registered. The steam locomotives mustnít be missing, but they have as well their own national galleries, due the intensive amount of available photos. One is reserved for German steam trains, another one for Japanese steam trains and one for Sri Lanka and as last one for the winter steam in China, locomotives and regular freight trains in Chinese factories and coal mine. All other steam trains pictures are presented in the worldwide and international gallery.

No photo gallery? Worth knowing about technology and program
If your operating system doesnít build the photo gallery, but instead displays a warning that restricts the display of active content, allow the blocked risk. The navigation, the selection menus of the photo gallery as well as the control of the gallery pages are completely written in javascript, which triggers the browser to display this warning. Furthermore, since version 3.0 the entire screen is designed in container technology with a maximum of 5 areas, which are set visible or kept hidden depending on the screen width. Same width also determines how many shots can be shown in a row and automatically adjusts to it when you refresh the screen, similar to your Windows Explorer. Due to the variable structure of the gallery, unfortunately, no headings can be given any longer, which area will be displayed next. The photo gallery itself as one on the 5 subsections is displayed with dynpro subscreen technology, means in the screen encircled container 2 other containers are connected in the top left position. One of these sub-container shows as transparent background image the Polish ET22-623 in Wojnowice; the other container contains the text. The wallpaper in the background is fixed with 100% x-axis and 100% y-axis and 7600 pixels, the text container calculates its depth itself. Depending to your screen configuration, one container is displayed deeper than the other, so there it at the bottom an overpowering beyond the edge of one of the containers. In normal cases the wallpaper should finish deeper than the text.

Some patience, please note
The pictures of the photo gallery are extremely compressed to 165 * 110 pixels, thus very fuzzy, but this is the intention. By clicking the frame you will get the actual size with an image resolution of 2250 * 1500 pixels and the detailed data to the picture. You can click the graphics right away, the second screen will open, but it may be that your Internet browser will load all the photos in the gallery before the single photo is activated in the zoom. Also note that your computer may issue a warning about active elements in the background. Without activation and during charging, the zoom screen remains black, which is not a program error, it is just the background color. Please be patient. How the photo description is structured and which possibilities you have in operating the system, is shortly summarized in the guidance to the photo.
