This is not a train spotters website. It’s about the joy of travelling by train compared to other modes of transport. I’ve travelled extensively around Europe and overland from London to Sydney by train – see: http://the-9-35-train-from-london-to-sydney.blogspot.com
It is based on my first-hand experience, covering classic & standard routes, the ease & difficulties of journeys and some reasons for choosing the train instead of the plane.
