Eighty years or more ago people preferred to travel by train rather than by car or plane. Some famous movies illustrate this, for example, in “The Women” New York society ladies go by train to Reno to get divorced, and in “Some Like It Hot” a band of female musicians take the train from Chicago to Miami. Today trains are a bit faster and no doubt more comfortable than last century. Many people complain about the discomfort of traveling by plane, the security lines, the small space in the seats, the cancellations, the long hours in the tarmac, etc. In the “etc.” I include experiences like someone dying to use the bathroom at a time of turbulence and being told by the flight attendant, “stay in your seat and fasten your belt”. Many people do not drive, or do not like to travel by car as they may have a flat in the middle of dangerous surroundings, or hate to spend long hours without standing up and walking, etc. In the “etc.” I include running out of gas in the middle of the desert. The city of Las Vegas might be said to owe its existence to being a stop in the San Pedro Los Angeles Salt Lake Railroad. Thus I wonder if anyone today goes to Las Vegas by train. From a distant city, it definitely would take more time to go by train than to travel by car or plane, but it would be more relaxing, maybe some don’t mind the extra time. One could consider the extra time as time when you save money, as you would not be gambling in the train. Or perhaps in today’s trains, since there is online gambling, there is even an electronic casino car where you can practice for your Vegas gambling. I am curious to hear from people who have traveled to Las Vegas by train, the farthest from the better, how was the experience?, would they repeat it?, etc. Please post if inclined.
