This October we took a scenic train journey all the way to Georgia and back. It was a five hour trip with about a three hour stop in Georgia for a chance to visit an autumn festival before we boarded for the trip back. It was quite a long day! We left for the train station before 5:30 AM and didn’t return until 8:30 PM that night.
We got tickets for the vintage double decker dome car, where we where served breakfast and dinner, and had unlimited snacks! The free food and the view through the giant windows was definitely worth being forced to share a table with a couple we didn’t know..
One of my favorite parts of the trip was traveling through the train cars. We sat in car eleven and ventured all the way to car seven which was set up as a little souvenir car. Passing between the cars is so wild!
Shopping in a moving train was an exciting adventure. The shelves were clanging around and I had to grab on to whatever I could to keep from falling over!
The vintage cars had so much character. I wanted take more pictures but there were too many people!
The train trip was a lot of fun, but it was a very long day. Next time we might decide on a slightly shorter trip. We did feel like kings though, as we were served meals on the top story of the dome window train car. It was certainly an experience.
Oh how cool! I’ve never done anything like that, but I love train travel so I’d totally be up for it!
Wow, that train is so cool!
