    We would love to try the Caledonian Sleeper. Happy to know that they did a revamp as this iconic train is definitely part of attractions and history. Happy to know that the food served is delicious. Can’t wait to be on board.

    I work in the railway industry in London, Uk and have done a lot of these journey’s and each one is unique in each way. But for me any journey through the alpine region or the rugged coastlines along the med coast of Italy and France are worth a try. I havent done the Trans-Siberian railway yet but it is a dream to do (and drink lots of vodka on the way).

    I’ve never heard of a train ferry before – so that puts the Baltic Sea Sleeper towards the top of the list, as I love experiences that not many others have had! And anything with a name like ‘Hell Valley Railway’ is worth doing just for the travel shock value when you casually drop the name into conversation. But the real winner for me is the Caledonian sleeper, as it’s hopefully something I’ll be experiencing in the near future. There’s an interesting range of prices – I was particularly surprised by the cost of Trans-Siberian express, which seems very inexpensive for such a long journey.

      Some train rides in Europe is actually super affordable and really convenient.

    We love to travel by train. I was quite excited to read about all the options in Europe. Some of these we have travelled. But several were interesting. Northern Spain by train sounds like a perfect trip. I love the fun nature of the Little Yellow Train in France. Having an open top would be great for sightseeing. I never thought of travelling in Scotland by train. But what a great way to see some of the lochs. And the Orient Express has been on my travel wish list for some time. Need to get that booked. Thanks for the tease. Saved this for future planning.

    What an amazing collection of scenic European train journeys, I only knew about a handful of these! I love the look of that short one in La Rhune, on that adorable old-fashioned train and I’d love to take the Little Yellow Train too. I keep meaning to do more of the UK rides too, especially in Scotland. And the Brocken railway, that looks like an amazing snowscape! I’ve taken trains in Switzerland and Italy and loved the views there. Adding Slovenia to my list too now.

    This is some of the best train routes that I have learned about. I am inspired and I must say that I love the train routes in Europe. Even in India, we have some amazing train journeys. With our increasing dependency on flights, we have actually forgotten the fun of traveling in trains. I love the countryside views from the moving train. Cinque Terre, Austrian routes, The Brocken Railway are definitely on my list.

    Great compilation! Glacier Express looks absolutely stunning. I imagine it would be a nice experience to take the little yellow train with the top exposed.

    This is such a great compilation of train journeys in Europe. I loved the look of the Yello Train of France. The Baltic Sea sleeper sounds so interesting. I was completely unaware of the concept of train ferries. It would be interesting to travel by this one. Being from India, most of our journeys within the country happen by train. I feel train journeys are special and I love them.

    I’m impressed by your post! It is so inspiring because I love trains. But I do not use them too often. I did only Cinque Terre Railway and Bieszczady from your list. It is an excellent idea to check these train journeys. El Transcantábrico in Spain looks fabulous, The Little Yellow Train, also. But my dream is the old Orient Express trip. Thanks for such detailed information, including prices and time duration.
