In spring 2017 a group of Railfuture members travelled by rail across Europe to Innsbruck in Austria. Their experience showed how easy and enjoyable rail travel can be, allowing tourists to visit several countries in one holiday, unlike many who rely upon airlines. It is noticeable how other countries have heavily invested in their railway to support tourism, which is more concerned with views from the window, comfort and ambience: characteristics not seen as a priority on enough of Britain’s railway.
