Train Journeys

Boarding the train is exciting and hectic as the last passenger climbs onboard and the doors slam. As the whistle blows and you pull out of the station, you can sit back and relax.

The aroma of freshly brewed coffee wafts by as you open a book and anticipate a hearty breakfast – and the journey ahead.
