Is that third rail for preventing derails?

Yes, it is a guide/check rail. I think it also prevents the tightly curved track from distorting too.

Ah, thought so.

Pity, that we don't do that here... but then again, that would cost many millions to upgrade the lines to such standards...

The sound of 500 nails being scrapped down a blackboard is a very common sound in the British countryside, it's a shame you don't have the opportunity to hear it over there.

The latest example is our "beloved" metrolink (seen here... [link] imagine that ever 5 minutes for 16 hours a day. )

Ah, the Jacobite! I am very happy to have ridden that train on that route. The scenery is fantastic, even without the Glennfinan viaduct. :)

Agreed, I didn't get to glenfinnan for the first two days because I had so many other angles/locations to play with.

I can understand that. It's impossible to go a mile on the parallel road without finding another great vantage point.
