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!

Need to add to the Christmas Train, need snow:

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.
