Thetraintraveler.com is a very unique website that is built around train travel. While I have never traveled via train, I still find the site quite interesting.
There is really nothing much to the main page, other than servicing as a portal to the rest of the site.
After landing at the featured Destinations page you can select from a variety of different destinations. You can then read about your destination as well as gather information about planning your trip.
First time travelers might find the Q&A page useful. It answers many common questions.
The Hints and tips page is a must read. It incudes several little good to know tidbits that you might not otherwise think about when riding a train.
There are several more different areas to explore on this site, including book reviews, editorials and more.
While I might never need this site, if you are planning a trip on a train, you should check this site out.
