    I used to hitch the train back and forth in my small Midwestern city from the suburbs I lived in as a teenager and the downtown area, and sometimes I would meet hobos on the tracks and drink Carlo Rosso with them next to the fire ... good times.

      Oh yeah and Pacific Surfliner is probably the best commercial train in the USA. Beautiful views all the way from San Diego to Santa Barbara and pretty much every stop outside OC and LA counties is a good place to hop off and explore for a day. It's very relaxing to take the train up to SB for a laidback weekend.

    I took the Alishan forest railway from Chiayi to Fenqihu in Taiwan. The train sways a lot and you can often feel your carriage jolting forward and backwards into the other carriages, was fun. It also had 4G signal the whole way through all the mountains and shit (excluding a couple of tunnels) which means you can read about the accidents that killed people as you ride past the remains of the landslides. My third world country (UK) hasn't quite managed to figure out having connectivity on a train beyond the point of a few seconds after leaving the train station yet

    I took the third class Bangkok to Chumphon sleeper train years ago before they shut the line down. It was bizarro.

    Yes, but maybe not the sort you are looking for. I was with a group doing a couple of festivals in China, we went from Beijing to Weifang overnight by train. The guy who booked tickets fricked up, he was supposed to get "soft class" tickets, but two of the tickets were "hard class." He took one of them, and since I was traveling alone (the rest were couples or teammates) I volunteered to use the other.
    At first the Chinese folks back in hard class were pretty confused as to why the frick I would be there, but once it became clear that I was not lost and was really traveling with them, they were amazingly welcoming. Almost none spoke English -- there was one guy who had a kid going to an American college in my home state, and an English teacher, and they sort of translated for me. Everybody wanted to ask about what I was doing and where I was going, and share snacks and drinks with me, and we generally had a fine old time.
    Meanwhile, the folks traveling soft class went to bed and didn't have any sort of memorable time, good or bad, on that train.

    I did the Oslo-Bodo train in Norway, about 24hrs. You go through some beautiful sceneries, I guess it's beautiful at every season but I did it in the summer and still managed to see some snow. The seats were super comfy as well, and not that expensive at all. Once you get off at Bodo you can jump on a boat to the Lofoten Islands to continue having a great trip.

        i just don't think a truly "scenic" train ride is worth the time. i don't want to see shit, i want to experience it. get up close to it, hike it, etc

    In April 1984, Jammeh joined what was then the Gambian National Gendarmerie as a private. He was part of the Special Intervention Unit from 1984 to 1986 and was an escort training instructor at the Gendarmerie Training School from 1986 to 1989. He was promoted to sergeant in April 1986, and to cadet officer in December 1987.

    When I was like 8, I rode on the Durango-Silverton train. The conductor told me to not open the window, because if you do, a fleck of coal cinder will fly into your eye.

    I got kinda hot in the cabin, so I opened the window, and I got a fleck of coal cinder in my eye.

    The last stretch of the Empire Builder Amtrak is quite nice. I also like the Southwest Chief for the most part. The Texas Eagle/Sunset Limited sucks and the coastal one in California is underwhelming.
    I like the train from Verona to Trento through the Alps. Also regional trains in Japan, the one to Matsushina frok Sendai and Yamagata from Sendai are wonderful - former should be taken in afternoon, latter in morrning.
    The downtown loop in Chicago is probably my favorite inner city train, European and Japanese metros can be amazing but they're indoors so don't produce memorable views. There's a line in NYC (C?) that goes over East River on a bridge, like that one too.

    Yes, but not because of the landscape or anything
    >be student, studying about 130km away from home
    >I get back to parent's home every weekend with carpooling. The route pass through some mountains with a relatively high altitude (+1000m)
    >but there's a weekend in the winter it's been snowing so much going back to the studying city would be dangerous by car, decide to go by train instead
    >in the train, to my surprise, there's a close friend who was in the exact same situation as me
    >we took our laptop and improvised a LAN party in the train like the nerd we are
    It was fun
