One of the advantages of train travel, (or disadvantages, if you are as antisocial as I am) is the chance to meet new people.
It is not so much a chance, as an obligation. In the dining car they seat you wherever you fit. If you are traveling alone, you are guaranteed to be with three strangers....Read more of this blog post »
