I rode a coal train one year when I was a kid. It went from somewhere around Dayton OH to Metemora IN (Christmas town). It was a blast but everything was covered in soot when we got there. Really cool though.

Also took a train from Berlin to Pr-aha Czech Republic. That was pretty sweet as well.

Really, any train you take is going to be pretty cool. Country side, relaxing.

Last train I took was in Germany. Good food and beer! Easy to get around and cheaper than driving to the big cities.

Not counting the party train from Kaiserslautern to Munich! :D

Need to add to the Christmas Train, need snow:

Only time I road a train was in S Korea. Took a train from the Southern coast to Osan Ab.

Last Christmas we took the kids on the polar express that went from Utica NY to Old Forge NY. It was like a 8 hour round trip through the Adirondak mountains. There were some amazing views!

We also did the Lake Placid to Saranak run.
