    Give Me a Train Over a Plane Any Day - It's Simply the Best Way to Travel
    By Griff Rhys Jones/ Travel/ Rail-Journeys/ The Telegraph/ telegraph.co.uk

    "Sorry if you are reading this on an over-packed, late commuter train with failed heating, but, for me, trains are still an unbeatable romantic kick. It starts at the station. I remember leaving the art'otel in Amsterdam on a southbound Eurostar heading for Antwerp.

    It wasn’t just the mist rising off the canals and the elegant frosty concourse filled with cheese and flowers, it was the seamless travel. No teeth-grinding queues and shuffling barriers. No boarding pass inspections three times in 10 minutes. No duty frees with silly winding paths and perfume stench. I turned up my collar, strode to my platform, greeted my massive and powerful conveyance and got on it. I felt like Jason Bourne. Ludlum wrote those adventures at a time when trains were still the only way to cover continents, full of spies and old ladies solving murders......"

    It would be interesting to see what Mr. Rhys Jones has to say on the subject after experiencing train travel in the Mother Country where it was invented. I suspect the observation wouldn't be the same.
