Last week I was doing some armchair travelling (better than being an armchair expert!) in Peru and discovered that the line from Cuzco (Poroy - outside the main city) through to Machu Picchu has been uploaded to Googlemaps. Very interesting it was too, both from a railway aspect and for the scenery. :)

Looking at the pictures, it appears a standard Google 360 degree camera was used, mounted on a rail vehicle, rather than simply a forward facing video camera as used for many enthusiast DVD's.

Enjoy!

PS Regarding the potential for such 'railview' in the UK, I have started a separate thread in the UK Railway Discussion.
