I usually don't use a train, but I took 2 rides on a train last week. I prefer local trains because they're comfortable and sometimes you can even find a restroom inside.

In Mexico, the most used public transport is the subway, I prefer to take the "combi", it looks like big wagon, I usually take this transport because is the closest to my house

I use a train at least once a month to visit my family in my hometown. My favorite kind of transport is an airplane, because during the flight I feel myself very relaxed and can observe amazing sky's views.

I don't often use the train. I only had some trips by train a long time ago. And they were very interesting and memorable.
I think my favorite public transport is the bus but only for short distances, within the city, such as going to school, going shopping or going out with my friends. Because it's convenient, stress-free, environmentally-friendly, and very cheap. I still get to meet people and see things while getting from point A to point B, and it can be very calming as well. But when I have to travel long distances, the bus is not comfortable and secure. Thus, traveling by train or plane is a better option for long trips.

I have never been by train, my favorite means of transport is the plane since it is faster than other means of transport, which would take land or sea by plane, the time is much shorter

My last train was in 2008 when I traveled to Hanoi with my father. Everything seemed strange to me. I had been very excited. And then, I slept all the trip. There is one thing I remember is that I had cried a lot and my father give me a chocobin ( a box of animal chocolate cookies ). I ate it and stopped crying. It had become my unforgettable memory. I like traveling by train a lot.

In 2015 i went to Germany with my family for holiday. I traveled from Friedrichshafen to Ulm by train. I visited Ulmer Münster ( Huge cathedral ) and climbed it's tower. Both this train trip and visiting historical cathedral impressed me a lot. I advice everybody...
