I remember when I travelled from my town to our capital ,it is 9 hours by train. I met a person has psychological problem I think that.
he stopped between the beds in the train and said to one passenger remove your clothes ,so to be naked (the passenger was female) When I am going to speak with him ,passengers noticed he had knife in his pocket ,all the passenger and conductor stopped we were afraid to use it , that was 15 minutes to next station where police officers then we were spoke with him to get the time to the station , when we arrived to station conductor called the policeman and took him . I never forget that moment all. My life

I've never experienced travelling by train? If i have a chance, i'd like to travel by train.

There is no video clip. Can somebody give me a favor?

Hello Naw Ring,

The video is working correctly, so I think there may be a compatibility issue with your device. Some devices, especially some mobile devices, have problems with some video formats. If possible, try accessing the page on a different device to see if this helps. If not, it may be a question of local internet regulation, which we cannot help with, obviously.
