Thanks for a wonderful trip report. I loved your YouTube film. Also nice that you did not cut off the singer-songwriter on board the train. Good to hear him performing the whole song. I've been on all those trains myself and it brought back a lot of nice memories. Very brave to make this trip only in Coach Class. You must have been exhausted.
