It is because from the very first steam powered engine invented by Richard Trevithick in 1804, the world’s technologies have now come up with trains moving at a speed of 581km/hr. Can you believe it? It’s really stupendous how rapidly the world is moving towards technological advancement. Railway provides the principal mode of transportation for freight and passengers and this can be regarded as the best gift of technology. Moreover trains are the most easily accessible and affordable means of communication. So is there any need to always stick to flights when there is so much pleasure in travelling on land?
