    You can't tell which way the train went by looking at the track. :D

    In long gone days, if it was a passenger train, you usually could.

    Hehe, Robin, in Switzerland you still can tell. :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Believe it or not, but in Europe we still have lots of passenger cars with - ahem - bottom discharging tubes... :mad:

    That's one more reason not to go too close to the track when railfanning. :rolleyes: :eek: :D :p
