Just read the GZ on a train from Munich to Paris. So much wailing and hand-wringing. This team will be ready in October.

sounds like a nice trip. I love train travel. We did the Rocky Mountaineer trip through the Canadian Rockies a few years ago. What a way to travel.

I've been considering doing that. I assume you'd recommend it? What time of season did you go?
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Berlin to Budapest is great. Mountain passes, rIver gorges, picturesque villages, medieval castles and so much more.

Milan to Basel to Cologne is spectacular for the same reasons.
Everyone's talking, few of them know
The rest are pretending, they put on a show
And if there's a message I guess this is it
Truth isn't easy, the easy part's shit

We did the Canadian Rockies early summer IIRC.  Flew into Vancouver to catch it and tacked a couple of days at the end of our trip in Banff. Drove to Calgary to catch a flight home. I recommend it for those that can enjoy being in a comfortable seat and looking out the window for hours at a time. You can go out to the rear of the car, which I did often, and get some air and less obstructed views. The food on the train is very good, too. We paid extra to sit in a dining car for the meals which really is just lunch and something light for breakfast. By dinner we were off of the train and in a town where we were put up in lodging.

Train from Vancouver to Halifax with stops along the way is great.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

I think that Switzerland provides the best European train experience. Hard to imagine a better trip than St. Moritz to Zermatt unless it is the Jungfraujoch loop. I also recommend the Chunnel - not sure why, it felt wierd

Two nights in Toronto, one night in Montreal, two nights in Quebec City, two nights in Halifax, all in Great Northern RR hotels (now Fairmont).

Shoot, I have no clue. My then-wife booked it.

Geneva to Vienna via Lichtenstein and through the Inn valley is spectacular.
