Living on the east coast of the US I am lucky to have access to a rail system which is not the best in the world but definitely acceptable. As a side note I took a Metro North train to Westchester and was pretty surprised how the cars on the Westchester line are so much nicer than those going to Fairfield County. Surprisingly Metro North also runs the trains to TMC’s home city of South Norwalk which is located within the county of Fairfield.
But I digress. For US citizens looking for yet another thing to envy about the rail systems in other countries… Today I learned that you will receive free WiFi on trains going from London to Scotland. Here is more from the New York Times (registration required).
