I am so grateful to you for starting this group. I was beginning to believe I was a very odd person to like train travel as much as I do. I have been unable to convince any of my family or friends that this is the best way to go time permitting. You can imagine how elated I was to find real people, and lots of them, who also enjoy traveling by train. I am guessing that as gas prices continue to rise and the air travel service continues to plummet, many many more people will join our ranks.
I am glad to have found others who enjoy riding the train as much as my sister and I do.
Lots of people do not understand why you would want to take the train because it is not fast like flying and you are not in charge like driving your own car and it is as expensive as flying (well not for the future).
After 9/11 there was a marked increase in train travel and there was a marked increase just reported. I believe the day will come when train travel throughout the country will be as common as it is in Europe and that will be a great day : )
Meanwhile we are ahead of our time LOL
Glad you are here.
