    I've actually got a New England trip planned this summer. Taking Amtrak and local rail for everything beyond flying up there.

        Nah, I'll be based out of Boston and heading up to Maine. AFAIK Acela terminates in Boston.

      For real. All our cities are engineered around the need for people of quality to avoid black people. That's it. That's why we can never have European-style cities.

          planes have more restrictions to entry - yes poor crude people can get a ticket and get on the plane
          but crazy homeless people would never make it through as security is allowed to be tighter
          and on the plane they are allowed to take more measures to stop a problem, and ban people from any further trips
          and metal detectors, plus other security deters drugs (i know people get around it but it deters use of smokeable drugs during the trip)
          these are all extreme examples but its just 1 person to ruin a bus ride too

            Regional trains can be restrictive too. It's not just a subway. And you have more options for upgrade(1st class, 2nd class, compartments, quiet car)

              In spain you arrive to the train station, you get into the train. Sometimes there are x-ray controls, but its like 1 minute. Way faster than a plane.

                That'd be northern Europe. In Spain you cannot go directly to the train, there are barriers and you generally have to validate your ticket. For AVE (high speed) you even have to go through metal detectors.

    Nah I'd go to Spain instead. Looks much safer.

    I have traveled the Northeast by train—my parents live in MA, and last time I visited them I also took the train to NYC for a few days. Ticket was cheap, travel time was similar (I’m sure it added some time, but not an unreasonable amount), and who wants or needs a car in New York? No regrets, will do again.

    >don't gave to spend hours at a time in a cramped car.

    >more affordable than flying for less established poorgays in their 20s but who still want to travel a lot.

      It's often cheaper to fly than take the train. That's why more Europeans fly than take trains long distance each year.

      Trains are only really used for shorter distances <6 hours.
      Europe is crowded so there's always a few major cities a short distance away other than that it's a meme.

      it can be a cool way to travel. went from the bay area to denver and spent almost all of the day time in the cafe car looking at the scenery and reading. it was slightly more expensive than a plane ticket but the seat was sleepable. the cafe itself serves terrible coffee and food but i brought some good coffee grounds and a dripper (bought tea in the cafe to get the hot water), mre heat pack and microwavable dinner pouch, and a wienertail in a thermos (in freezer previous night that was melted and cold by dinner.

        Sounds fine as a one time thing but Europeans would fly that distance

          i would fly that route if i were to do it again, but an overnight train ride is a great way to see the landscape and its cheaper than a hostel+flight

    In my humble opinion, trains are good for 4- hours trips. Airports tend to be distant to the city centre and the qeues, customs and immigration cause plane travels to be a hassle. Not to mention you should be at the airport at least 2 hours prior to your flight. So I prefer to avoid them. Buses sucks as you can't stretch your legs during the trip, get a drink at the bar, etc., like you could in a train.
    For 4+ trips is better to get a plane though. Less tiresome. I do enjoy night trains though (as long as its in a private cabin). Can't really say it's worth it as you probably will have to book the prior night in a hostel/hotel since you tend to arrive at early morning or at least get a locker/go to the hotel to put your bags while you explore the city and then come back to check-in. But I do sleep like a baby in nigh trains so I still love them. But money-wise they tend to be expensive, sometimes even more expensive than flying.
