I have tried traveling by train once in my lifetime. And i got it Uncomfortable .This is because, the train loaded so many passengers and it was unable to properly get ventilation and sit.

This tasks is maked very good.

I don't like traveling by train and yes I had some problems when I traveled by trains... for example, about 10 years ago, when I had train journey the train was stopped for few hours becouse someone made suicide on railway... or another example I buy ticket to the travel for my last money, but don't buy ticket to place in the train (I don't know I should buy it) and almost I must leaved the train before my destination. Thats all (And now I have request for you. Maybe someone will by able to amend my grammar error becouse I'm begining lern writing.) Thanks for the mountain (thats was a joke)

Hello tmzch
Thanks for explaining your experiences here; I'm sure many people have had similar things happen to them on the train (I have).
I'm afraid we don't correct users' written texts, but if you have a question about a specific phrase or sentence, we'd be happy to help.
All the best

I don't like seething mass of people in a busy station....


Trains are not so popular in my country. So when I find a chance to get a train, I sure don't miss it.

I like traveling by train. I have never had problems with this kind of transport. I used trains in Moscow. It is great!

Yes I do. When I was a child , I used to travel by train. Because My father worked as a civil servant at the railway company that belonged to goverment. But I prefer travelling by plane or car.
