I am not sure what it is I like so much about riding the train, but there is something about it I find very comforting, almost soothing. I first really experienced train travel in Europe and I loved it from the start, especially the old-fashioned “cabins” rather than the open car seating. Even going into the city, ninety minutes is long enough to settle back and relax into whatever you choose: reading, knitting or just reviewing the internal monologue of to-do lists, points of concern and debate. It just such a civilized way to travel especially to and from work.
