I like to travel by train. Besides, I haven't had trouble with my luggage or something relationship round-trip ticket yet.

I have never traveled with train before and it's because I live in Afghanistan and it doesn't have any train .but l really like to travel with a train it has too much joy.

Unfortunately I had a lot of experiences like this! I often take the train to go tu University.

Unfortunately, I never take the train. I would like to try it one day. So I can not argue so much.

Unfortunately I never traveled by train.
But I want do it when I move to Canada or travel to Europe.
In Brazil where I came from, doesn't have trains to travel.

I've never traveled with a train before :)

I like to travel by train if the trip is quite short . As train is going, I enjoy just watch to the window and think about everything. The road is very calm and good for reading or talking. One thing that I don't like about the travelling by train is the searching the paths where the train is pass.

I never have travelled in train because where I live there isn't, but were have other means of transport for example busses, taxis, boats, planes, cars, bicicle and motorbike.

I like traveling by trains cause they are more comfortable than buses. I think the most serious problem that I have had is that I had taken the wrong train and I hadn’t realized that until I reached the last destination. The problem happened by accident and it wasn’t my fault because there was a mistake in timing board.

I have never traveled by train, but I would like to. Sure I have had problems with other means of transportation, such as missing a bus that goes a long way.
