We spent 4 nights of the trip on the train. I thought a train ride would be a lot like a plane ride, but there is a lot more open space. There were also observation cars and dinning cars. These were surprisingly comfortable and had tables to play card games on. Most of us spent our waking hours on the train in these cars, playing card games. The trains also had power outlets, which was nice because Sunil and I needed to finish a paper.
