Why I Like Train Travel

I always prefer travelling by train. There are many advantages of travelling by train as compared to the other means of transport. The major advantages of travelling by train are cheap travel, connectivity to small and big cities, seeing an amazing view from the window, you can take luggage as much as you want, carry your home-made food, spacious and relaxing journey and most stations are within the heart of the cities.

I hope this information will be useful to you for planning your next trip by train.

The Cost Effective Way Of Travel

The cost of the train tickets is always cheaper than that of the plane tickets. Whether the distance travelled is shorter or longer, travelling by train is always cheaper than by plane. I am a family traveler and go with 3 to 4 members every time. Thus, I save my money on every person and every trip I am saving mymoney. That saved money I spend on my other travel or other expenses.

Largest Railway Network

In India, trains have a very large network. Trains are connected to more cities as compared to the plane. Another thing is that it is connected to big and small cities where planes fly to big cities only. So it is easy and convenient for me to visit the places of my interest. On the other hand, planes are connected to big cities only. If I have to go to small cities after a plane journey, I again have to travel by another mode of travel to the small city.

Allow To Carry Home Cooked Food

I can take home-cooked food with me on the train. The train allows eatable items like food, fruits, drinking water and any liquid items. There is not any restriction on carrying food or water or any liquid with you. Thus, I can save money on purchasing food and water.

Pantry Car Service

After finishing my home-cooked food or if I want to purchase food for a change of taste, then car service is always there. The car service provides everything from soup to tea to snack to any type of food at a reasonable rate. At the airport you have to think twice whether to purchase eatable items or not. At every station there are food stalls you can purchase from there too.

Enjoy The Amazing View From The Train Window

I like to see what is outside of the window from a running train. There may be a landscape, culture, river, lakes, sunrise & sunset. What may be coming across I like. The natural beauty is in these things and not in the cities. Even though I like the people at the station. I enjoyed the most beautiful journey by Konkan railway from Mumbai to Trivandrum and a toy train journey from Kalka to Shimla. That was an amazing experience of travel.

A More Spacious And Comfortable journey

Travelling by trains is a relaxed journey. The seat of the train has a large size and is comfortable. You can sit or sleep on your seat or stretch your legs. If you are a group of people, then you can sit on one berth and can play cards or chat with each other or even read a book. If you get bored, then take a walk inside the train. You can step down at the other station when the train stops at the station.

Stations Are Within City

The majority of the stations are located within the city. So the distance to the station may be less and can easily and in a short time reach the station. The distance required to reach the station from home may be less as compared to reaching the airport. Again, after reaching your destination city, you get down from the train and visit the place of your interest in the city. Thus, you can save

Luggage No Problem

While travelling by train, there is not any restriction on luggage. You can make the pack according to your convenience and weight. No need for paying extra money. You can put your luggage inside the train with you.

Interaction With More People

In one country a lot of people are travelling, and you can interact with many people of different states having different languages. This is one of the best ways to understand the different culture coming from different parts of the country. At different stations you can learn the different culture of the different states and people. What is their food, dresses, language and other things? All these things are possible by train only. money.

No Need to Arrive 2 Hours Before Departure

At the airport you have to reach 2 hours early for a security check, screening of your luggage and obtaining a boarding pass. At the railway station no need to reach 2 hours earlier as there are not these formalities. To reach 10 to 15 minutes before the departure time of the train is sufficient.
