I like travelling on train but unfortunately i am afraid to travel alone on train cause when i was travelling by train in Europe my cell phone was stolen

I go to work by train every day. It is time for me. I can to read books, learn languages, watch movies... Problem was in Berlin - the train came about 1 hour later.

I would like to go travel by train but I haven't till used the train on my journey now. I am thinking of to go by train on next time.

I think it is very interesting to travel by train especially for a long period but it's impossible in my country because all train stations had been destroyed by the war

In my life the best train which I'had seen is Chinies train. It was very fast train. Speedometr shown almost 400 km/h.

I like travelling by train, which is quite convenient.
I haven't had much problems on my journey. I've never missed by train and rarely traveled during the rush hours.

I have never traveled by train before.But i would love to.I would like to have the experience of travelling by train in the future.

I like traveling by train.

I enjoy travelling by train, because is very comfortable and you can relax during the journey. I had a problem once, because I was late and I couldn't buy a ticket at the station. I had to buy one on the train and pay a fine. The problem was that I haven't got enough money. A stranger gave me the missing amount of money. It was a really awkward situation.

I like travelling by train because I think it's the most comfortable public transportation in world, especially in long journey. But in my country, the time spending on a train my be the shortest period within travelling. And compare with UK the schedule of train in my country is lack of flexibility, that means, if you missed a train you might have to wait the next train for at least one day.
