Question by Molly MM: Is it possible to see the difference between an electric train and a diesel train?
Do they look any different? I can not see the difference and I do not know which trains are electric and which ones are diesel. If there is any difference in appearance, what is the difference?
Answer by Derek Bradley
Electrical trains will have cables running above them, with connectors coming up to meet the cables from the top of the carriages. They also run much quieter than diesel trains and dont have any exhaust fumes.
