A passenger rail journey offers up many unique opportunities and experiences that driving does not. Today, most people taking a train use the time wisely to work on their laptops or phones, often using headphones to entertain themselves with videos or music. Some catch up on sleep, read books, or when possible, have a meal.
While these may be solitary pastimes, the social environment of trains can be a significant part of the passenger experience. Socializing on trains is an overlooked source of joy and learning. The human connections made with passengers or crew can make a trip memorable. On the other hand, all one needs to do is look out the window to discover breath-taking landscapes that can also make lasting impressions and serve as inspiration.
