Is it convenient to travel by train with heavy luggage?

0

The experience of traveling on a train can vary greatly from country to country. In certain countries train travel can be a luxurious experience, while in others, it can be a hassle, to say the least. Depending on which country you’re in and how modern their train transit system is, you may find that heavy luggage is not easy to bring with you. Many trains in the U.S. have baggage compartments above the seats, making it difficult to place large or heavy luggage high up. It is generally not advisable to leave luggage unattended if a passenger leaves his or her area, so having heavy luggage does not make it easy to visit the restroom or the concessions car, for example. In addition, many trains make stops at stations for only three or four minutes, making it difficult to exit or board a train with numerous bags or heavy luggage with ease.

In Europe, many of the major cities have luggage storage lockers in their train stations at an additional cost. This will allow the traveler to leave heavy or bulky luggage behind while visiting the area for the day.

It is not very convenient. First, at most of China’s railway stations, there are many steps between platforms and entrances. Passengers who take heavy luggage need to make great efforts to carry it during the section. This can be more difficult for the senior citizens. Porters at the station may be helpful at extra expense but they are not always available when you need a helping hand. Second, some trains only stop for 3 or 4 minutes at a station. You have to get on or get off the train in haste. You may lose your luggage if there are lots of others who are doing the same thing with you. China Highlights suggest you take a plane instead of train when travelling in China because it is much safer and more convenient, especially for the senior citizens and the passengers who travel with their children.
