If I get to visit Berlin and/or Stuttgart someday, I'll be sure to ride it if it's still operational by the time.

Speaking of snacks - it sounds like what the fancy hipster cafes charge for essentially simple meals. Locomore makes it sound like the ingredients are specially chosen, though. I'm not sure how much I can trust that kind of labeling at this point, but if it's true, some people are going to be willing to pay for it.

Besides. Riding for mere hours on a train to another major city sounds fantastic to me as a Russian. Kemerovo (my hometown) to Moscow takes two days, with up to six people in a compartment smaller than an office restroom.

I travel biweekly to visit family. It's a 3 - 4 hour train ride and it is essentially a cross-country trip in comfortable, wifi-enabled trains like this:

...yeah, can't complain. :)
