Is Europe the only place where you can enjoy travel by train?

Meaning, nice safe trains, with a wide variety of destinations that one can see within a day or so's travel?

Anything like that in the Southern hemisphere?

Most of East Asian has really great high-speed trains

Frankly only canada and the US in the west have shitty trains

Even many developed countries have better commuter rail than the US and Canada. Most of East Asia(the rich ones) has superior commuter rail than many European countries.

That said US freight rail is superior than Europe's. But that only benefits businesses.

r3 Australia and New Zealand are probably pretty bad for a developed country.

India trains provide a lot of opportunity for socializing. Russian trains provide a lot of opportunity for penance.

r6 The poster said in the WEST. Africa is not the west. And you would be surprised at the rail in some major cities in Africa.

OP, are you crazy? Didn't you see Meryl and Robert meet when that train pulled over during the first reel of Out Of Africa? That was African bullet train.
