Once I took a train from madras to guwahati in the north eastern India. It took 63 hours for me to reach the destination. It was boring after say 40 hours. Do you like long journeys by train? If so which was your longest train journey?

Hello friend,I like train journey but if it is short one and if I have a company with me, otherwise its a big No for me.Once I went from Bangalore to Guwahati, there were no express train in those days and it took me about 3 days to reach there.I was alone and it was during summer.I cannot go through that boring journey again by train unless I am travelling with group of friends

No I do not like long journeys by train.The longest I have traveled is 8-9 hours.I prefer to take the night train so that I reach by the morning.If this is not possible I board the train early in the morning carrying some breakfast and by lunch time I reach my destination.I have heard my friends from the north narrating their tales of train travel which takes them anything from three to four days.I simply cannot imagine traveling that long.Hats off to those who do it they have to carry so much of food if they do not like to eat out.

I do not like long journey by train but as I am not earning so I have to go by train by the way once I had gone from bhubaneswar to delhi the actual timing was 30 hour but due to some problem it took more than 40 hours i felt very irritating that day i decided not to travel any more by train when i will earn money and will get a handsome salary then i will start travelling by train

Oh i hate take a train.I must wait for 10 hours to reach my destination.My aunty like it and suggest me to use it and i fight with her that i dont want it.So we use a bus to go to my sister's house last day.She become angry and scold me along the journey.And i was happy because i dont need to wait for long day.

I used to like train journeys because it take train to go back home. Those were night trains and I slept most of the time in train and the other time I had dreams about meetign my family and eating good food prepared by my mom. Now a days I started travelling a lot using train and started kind of hating it. I would like small train journeys, but not long - they are boring.
