Rail Europe by htilden42 Rail Europe by htilden42
Logos of European (and then some) railways.
Some are anachronistic, like for Britain, as British Rail ceased to exist in 1997. Others are just older versions of a current company's logo, like in France. Because I like the old version better.

The 'flying wheel' seems to be popular in former Eastern Block states. Crazy communists... :p

shouldn't Northern Ireland have the Translink logo?
htilden42 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Probably. For whatever reason I used the old NIR logo.

Ah, Eastern Europe. My beloved and loathed home, and my homeland in the middle of the Carpathian Basin - Hungary. As shitty, and disorganized, AND dysfunctional things seem there, I still love it. Pity about the MÁV, though... It is COMPLETELY screwed up now.

That's nice. I just hope people stop referring to my country as "communist", even as a joke. It's been 20 years already...
I find it funny that a lot of people who claim to be interested in world history/politics/whatever are actually more interested in stereotypes than in how things really are. But I guess reality is inevitably more boring than urban myths :P

Yeah, you're right.

Even as a joke, it's not accurate or called for. And I can understand why a Romanian would be particularly sensitive about such a label.
It's a bit like calling all Germans Nazis or all Frenchmen cowards, something which annoys me, so I guess I shouldn't be so hypocritical.

Thank you for this comment, it does actually make me feel better.

For sure, some Romanians are nostalgic about the old regime. But I was 2 when the Revolution happened, so it doesn't make sense for me to be labeled a communist in any shape or form. I couldn't imagine living in a society where you're not free to speak your mind or to leave, and there's not enough food to eat. Things suck even now in plenty of ways, but at least there's no dictator, no secret police and all that.
