Tagline: Save yourself the pain and travel by train
Forget the strain of flashing your naked body to airport staff before cramming it into a tiny seat in a gravity defying, airtight tin box and travel in a civilised manner by rail. Unlike blogs covering travel with broader strokes, Trains on the Brain devotes its attention to consumer issues, history and infrastructure as well as personal experiences and, as one would expect, dwells on the journey over the destination.
