I take the BSL subway to Fern Rock, and then the R3 to Bethayres. Its a nice ride. Usually get home in half an hour, provided I get to Olney Station on the BSL by 3:30.

I ride trains regularly when railfanning (and sometimes even going somewhere for a reason!) in New South Wales, Australia, and also in Victoria, Australia when I am down there.

I have also riden trains in South Australia, and on the branchline into the Australian Capital Territory :).

Metro North every day between Noroton Heights and Stamford. Sometimes I transfer in Stamford and go up to New Cannan if I need to head up that way.
Some people complain about the traffic on I95, If you have a problem with traffic and the rails go where you are going, TAKE THE TRAIN!!!

I usually bike,
But the el is good for getting around the city, and metra is good for going to the southern suburbs, lots of action. I just rode Marc for the first time. I also rode the DC subway, metro. I have scored a few cabrides from local switching railroads. I have ridden Amtrak a few times. I have ridden the south shore line. Plus lots of museums.
