I like traveling by train. I’m careful not to take wrong train when I go to big city. I always use transfer application because route map is complicated.

Yes, I like travelling by train the most. it covers long distance in few minutes. Few years ago my train got delayed by 3 hours due to foggy weather. we kept waiting till the train reached station. this was little embarrassing. we got a sigh of relief once we get on. after that the journey started and we reached our destination the next morning

actually, we don't use trains to travel but I used one time and it was nice journey. It had many advantages like comfortable, it takes a short time and you can enjoy seeing the views.

I had travelled by train twice in a few years ago.
I have one beautiful picture on the train that showed a fields rice background through the train window.
When i look at the picture, i just remember my best friend who took the picture, because long time no see her anymore.

When I was in a camp (at the Balaton) i had been travel by train from Sóstó to Siófok and Balatonboglár. I don't like to travelling by train because it is really crowded and in the summer it is really muggy and hot than the outside but it's very fast (this is the good thing in that). The train is a possibility to travelling but it isn't have every town.

Yes, I like travelling by train. Unlike airport, most major train stations are located right downtown in the heart of the cities. Instead of taking an expensive airport cab ride from miles outside of town, I like to step off my train. I took a wrong train when I was in London. I was planning to go to Bicester Village which is located in Oxfordshire. The wrong train stopped at the downtown of the Oxford so I had to take a bus to the destination after I went off the train.

yes I like travelling by train and in the last three years I had been travelling more times in a week by train cause I was studying in Cottbus which is 200 km far away from Berlin where I live. sometimes I had some problems when the train didn't get to Cottbus in the time so I missed my lecture or part of it and sometimes I missed the train and had to wait an hour for the next one.

Yes, I like travelling by train, but I don't like tavel during rush hour. I had problems in the first few years. When I got in a train. I really needed to find an available seat which near the display screen for watching where I was because I couldn't understand English well even the notification was speaking slowly.

I love travelling by train because it gives the opportunity to see lots of amazing sight seeing and being able to get interacted with various parts of whenever I travel by train I feel like there are no more worries in the world...

When I was a child, I had been travelled by train. I remember I saw beatiful views but also I had been felt dizzy. But I can say I still love travelling by train.
