No, Emmy Mouse; these trains have been around for half a century. The former Trans Europ Express trains came in many different types suited for different gauges as well as voltages. `The Talgo I mentioned was a TEE train running from Barcelona to Lyons and on to Geneva. Russia for example makes no rolling stock that can travel on tracks of different widths even though the Russians are the most seriously disadvantaged.
