I mentioned in this thread my problem of getting my father, who is afraid of flying, from Rome to Newcastle, and how one possible solution is going by train. Neither I nor him are really keen on the idea, because it would be a long trip, possibly requiring days, so it would be tiring for him, and the whole trip could require more days than he can take for holidays.
Never the less, I still have to keep this option open, because I don’t think he will be able to overcome his fear. So I would like to ask: what is, in your opinion, the best web site to get information on proces and times for this kind of cross-state trip by train?
Yeah, yeah, I know there is Google, but I get a lot of unrelated stuff and sites for rapacious travel agents charging a lot; and even if it was all good stuff, I don’t get a review with them, right?
