In my country trains are not very common.

I never travel by train , just i used it inside the city.


I really like travelling by train. Seeing the changing view, being able to walk while you travel, having the chance to change your mind and stop by a different city than the originally aimed one. I've never had any real problems, but I remember risking missing my train several times. I'm not known for my ponctuality.

when I was child i had been travel once by train from Peshawar and Afghanistan, now I live in Afghanistan but here is not train,
traveling by train is also economic also can study the book as well.

many tnx from all of your helping, if you share more videos it is better.

great video and the most helpful web site ever)

I've never travelled by train before. Almost all my destination isn't on the way of the train. So it's not suitable for me. I choose the other transportation for my trips like air plan, shuttle bus or drive a motorbike by myself.

Yes I like travelling by train. So far I have only one problem during my journey. The train which I tended to get on has been so late. Thus, I have missed my ongoing journey. AND so I have to buy a new one but ii didnt have extra money. There wasn't any chance to pay with credit card.

I like traveling the by train. I haven't had any problem on my journey. I never missed to the train or plane or bus

I never travel by train before because of traveling by train in my country the facilities of the train is quite backward. Therefore, We usually travel by car, motorbike or by plane, that is more convenient.

Yes, I like traveling by train, but I live in Afghanistan and there is not trains for traveling. So, we just travel by bus, car or plain.
Last year, when I wanted to come back from Mazar to Kabul, I missed my plain by 11 minutes. So I couldn't get that day, and also I had to change my ticket and I got a new one.
