Our 10 Greatest Train Travel Photos

Munich, Germany Rail Station


Stara Lubovna, Slovakia Rail Station
Prague, Czech Republic Rail Station

Train travel is definitely my preferred mode of transportation while traveling. Sure it takes a bit longer than flying, but my gosh being able to soak in the landscape is so soothing. I've yet to do any real train travel here in the United States though I have heard wonderful things about the quick trek from New Orleans to Birmingham, Alabama, as well as the New Orleans to Chicago line. Have you done any US train travel? What's your most memorable train trip?

  1. In college, I did NOLA to NYC... it was different, but it was very cool to see some of the landmarks/historical sites in the larger cities we passed through... and it was inexpensive! :)- Jamie Dupuis

    1. Jamie, that's the downside with train travel in the US - it's so expensive! We tried to take a trip from New Orleans to Los Angeles but just couldn't justify the cost ($2k+/person!). But like I said above, I've heard the New Orleans > Birmingham route is nice, and affordable ($35/one-way). We're just keeping our eyes open now for a concert or something to go on in Birmingham!

    1. Thank you kindly, Ana. Every time I flip through our photos and come across a train, I get so homesick for travel too! Something about a train is so romantic & nostalgic to me. Such a neat way to experience the local culture & vibe of a place.

    1. Gosh is it ever relaxing. The sound of the tracks, and the snack carts. Definitely my preferred method of travel. And the people you see & meet make for some of the greatest pictures & stories.
