I Do The Trains

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Trains, Planes, and Automobiles.”

Trains is my answer!

Stopping at not only major cities but also on small towns, a train journey provides a big city guy like an opportunity to witness what life looks like on a small scale. The world looks so different from your cabin’s window. Passing green fields or crossing bridges over a river, a train journey is a unique experience.

Of course there are benefits of air travels too but those who love to explore uncharted territories in a smooth pace, there is no better option than a train travel. The constant engine running sound, the whistle, little jolts, etc have their own charm.

Also, Pakistan Railways has improved up his services. Departing and arrival are on time now. Staff has become supportive, something no one could have even dreamed of 2-3 years ago. New and powerful locomotives are running round the clock and much more. Because of this, more and more people are preferring train journey rather than planes now.

    I would love to see beautiful views from a train but trains are just not for me I think. I’m glad your favourite mode of transport has improved where you are.
