It's no secret around here that our executive editor has a extreme love of travel-by-train excursions. Maybe it's the slow-paced life inside the richly decorated, wood-paneled rail cars, or the hours of conversations you're afforded with other passengers as you pass through beautiful countrysides -- either way, there really is something very romantic about locomotive travel today. Though trains used to be the primary way of getting from place A to B, today they are a luxury reserved for those who know that half the fun of getting somewhere, is the journey itself. Since there are many train tours available for both domestic and international travel, we chose six of our favorites that offer overnight accommodations, unique experiences and exciting locations to share with you.
