  • An hour long is not long enough on a train. While you sit in travel, at ease, you think: "Nothing really is better than traveling by train." You relax, sip your coffee (or tea), read, write, talk, listen to music, stare out the window, or play chess. You just sit there, in comfort, as the train slides down the tracks. There's little movement involved, no motion or altitude sickness, and ample freedom to move around. Is there anything better than traveling by train?
