Goods wagons in a Swiss siding. Notice the overhead electric cable above the blue vehicle. Light railways are the in thing these days. This one is called a "tram" and runs between Wimbledon and Croydon along what was once a part of the National Rail Network. Funicular railways are built to travel up and down steep slopes.

A fire appliance, commonly (but wrongly) called a fire engine. This one was visiting a school summer fete. Ice Cream vans are a common sight in the summer months.
