Long before we were able to fly from one destination to another the general population either traveled by stagecoach or if they were lucky enough they were able to travel by rail.
With all of the modern conveniences we haven’t hand it seems that one of these modes of transportation is seeing a resurgence in popularity.
No, you are not likely to see a stagecoach rolling through your town but the fact that train travel has become a preferred mode of transportation is no surprise. You may need to add extra time to your trip but may surprise you in many ways. Trains are far more comfortable than a cramped airplane as they have more room for seating and you have the ability to get up and wander from car to car to stretch your legs. They have dining cars, business class cars where you can plug in your devices and work if needed and even sleeping cars. These modern trains are fulling climate controlled and you can even travel in the dead of winter, seeing the sites along the way and be warm and cozy too. In the summer you can do the same from the safety of an air conditioned car even if you are travelling through the desert areas. There are so many advantages to choosing this form of travel and you can see why it is becoming more popular. Just the fact that you can head to your sleeping car and adjust it to your own personal temperature is a huge plus. Often times these train rides stop at various points of interest too and that is a nice advantage over flying too.
