Does kinda look that way doesnt it. i always wondered why European trains were made smaller than are trains. especially since they run on the same track.

The Colas Rail is a British rail freight company. At Britain is the Clearance very low, because of their old tunnels and bridges. Here at Germany is the Clearance higher, but not so high like in NA. I think similar to the east coast of the USA. An older infrastructure has a lower clearance.

That was a neat little video that showed loading gauge differences between North American and UK trains.
