I’ve never rode a train before, so it was enjoyable to do something I’ve never done! Waking up to the sun rising was wonderful too.
It was freezing cold all night and the lights stayed on all night, but other than that it was an honestly enjoyable trip.
Bring a blanket or layers! It’s chilly!! Also bring a camera because it was extremely picturesque at certain times!
