Take The Train

I'm heading off to Tram Town next week to bother visit my family. Naturally, I'm taking the train.

Why?

Here's why:

  1. Go to train website.
  2. Check timetable.
  3. Buy ticket online.
  4. Receive ticket as PDF via email.
  5. Print ticket on printer.
  6. Catch train.
  7. Snooze and/or read and/or watch anime and/or listen to iPod and/or play games on Palm Pilot as countryside rolls by. (I haven't got the extended battery yet so I'm limited to about 3 hours of anime.)

1 Well it is certainly easier than driving! ;-) And cheaper with the current fuel prices...

3 Maybe you can get one of those hand-cranked laptops...

4 I've taken AmTrack's high speed ACELA service several times in the last couple of weeks between DC and NY -- 1st Class is cheap and gives you not only free food & drinks, but also a real table to sit at if you're not among the last to board and there are electrical outlets to plug in your laptop.

5 I don't think you get that on Countrylink. The XPTs that run between Sydney and Melbourne were pretty fancy when they were introduced, but that was about 30 years ago. First class really just means better seats. Well, and more space.
