On The Rails
Here’s some good news if you’re trying to plan rail trips around Europe - which can be a bit of a challenge. The folks at Loco2 (train locomotive/low CO2, geddit?), some of whom I know, have done a partnership deal with Mark Smith, who runs the encyclopaedic Seat 61 rail travel website. (Mark Smith is The Man in Seat 61, not to be confused with Mark E Smith from The Fall). Declaration: I don’t have a financial interest in Loco2, although I did use them to book a European train ticket (Split to Ljubljana via Zagreb) which worked out fine. You can read more about the deal here, which includes a great comment from Mark Smith, “flying on a budget airline is a nightmare, but easy to book, while travelling by train is wonderful but difficult to book.” You said it, Mark.
