VoM2: Trains To Hirtshals

I took four trains to get from Esbjerg to Hirtshals yesterday, each one getting progressively smaller and with more stops along the way: A posh “Inter-City” express, a comfortable “Regional” line, a no-frills “Local” and finally this tiny — but brand-spanking new! — little one that’s pretty much the equivalent of the local bus.

I’m always impressed and a bit envious about European trains. They seem to go everywhere, run right on time and have schedules that perfectly inter-connect. I don’t know much about the high-speed rail line I’ve heard is being planned in California, but I sure wish the US had more and better train service!
