Someone put this photo on Facebook and there was quite a difference of opinion as to whether this was a good way to travel, personally I thought it looked rather splendid.
Much better than a long haul plane, when you fancy a change from talking with others in the observation car and looking at the wonderful views, you can get up and walk the entire length of the train or go back to your compartment for a little rest before later going for dinner and then a little drinkypoo in the bar before retiring for the night.
It seems very civilised to me, although even better would be the experience of an old fashioned ocean liner, which is the same as the train but with more space, not I hasten to add one of the modern versions which look like Disneyland on Sea.
However there was also the school of thought that travelling in the rather more relaxed and casually dressed modern way was a better option, what do you think?
