    Changed reply in topic of We are planning a trip to England in May and will stay in London or Swidon.

You can search schedules from 'Gatwick Airport' to 'London' under the 'Tickets &amp; Reservations' tab on our homepage (<a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com">www.raileurope.com</a>), and you will see an option that involves changing trains once in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/reading" rel="nofollow">Reading</a>. Keeping with the theme from above, these trains do not accept reservations, so the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-england-pass-5893" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-england-pass-5893">BritRail England Pass</a> is all you would need to board..

    Changed reply in topic of We are planning a trip to England in May and will stay in London or Swidon. Will britrail pass let you take a train from Gatwick to Swindon by Jeff to Hi Cynthia,<br /><br />For the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-england-pass-5893" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">BritRail England Pass</a>, you would click here: <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-england-pass-5893" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-england-pass-5893</a>.<br /><br /><b><u>Gatwick Airport to Swindon</u></b><br /><br />A connection from the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/place/london-gatwick-airport-5742" rel="nofollow">Gatwick Airport</a> to Swindon involves going into London first. To do so, you would take the Gatwick Express. The Gatwick Express arrives into the Victoria station in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/london" rel="nofollow">London</a>. They depart frequently and the ride only takes about 30-35 minutes.<br /><br />Trains from London to Swindon depart from the London Paddington station.<br /><br />To get from the Victoria station to the Paddington station, you would take the Circle Line of the Tube. The Circle Line from Victoria to Paddington takes about 17-20 minutes. You would pay to board the Tube locally at the turnstiles when you're there.<br /><br />The <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-england-pass-5893" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">BritRail England Pass</a> does cover the Gatwick Express, as well as the trains from London to Swindon.<br /><br />On trains from London to Swindon, reservations are not necessary. Therefore, the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-england-pass-5893" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">BritRail England Pass</a> is all you would need to board. For planning purposes, you can view schedules from London to Swindon by using the route search fields right on our homepage, <a href="http://www.raileurope.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom">www.raileurope.com</a>.<br /><br /><b><u>Swindon to Stratford-upon-Avon (via Reading and Leamington Spa)</u></b><br /><br />From Swindon to Stratford-upon-Avon, the most common connections involve 2 train changes en route; once in <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/reading" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/reading">Reading</a> and then once in Leamington Spa. These trains do not accept reservations, so the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-england-pass-5893" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link http//wwwraileuropecom/pass/britrail-england-pass-5893">BritRail England Pass</a> is all you would need to board. For planning purposes, you can view these schedules on <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/" rel="nofollow">our website</a>; you would just have to piece together your search segment-by-segment. Therefore, you would do one search from Swindon to Reading, another search for connecting trains from Reading to Leamington Spa, and another search for connecting trains from Leamington Spa to Stratford-upon-Avon.<br /><br /><b><u>Swindon to Stratford-upon-Avon (via Didcot, Banbury, and Leamington Spa)</u></b><br /><br />You also might want to consider a connection from Swindon to Stratford-upon-Avon that involves 3 train changes, but is even faster than the option involving 2 train changes. The train changes would be made in Didcot, Banbury, and Leamington Spa. Reservations are also not needed on any of these trains, so the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-england-pass-5893" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/pass/britrail-england-pass-5893">BritRail England Pass</a> is all you would need to board. Once again, to view schedules you would just have to piece together the connection segment-by-segment. Therefore, you would do one search from Swindon to Didcot, another search for connecting trains from Didcot to Banbury, another search for connecting trains from Banbury to Leamington Spa, and another search for connecting trains from Leamington Spa to Stratford-upon-Avon..

    Changed reply in topic of What cities in Ireland have rail? by Jeff to I know, I think the same thing as you every time, but it actually doesn't connect in Limerick. As wacky as it seems, connections like this can only be done by going back to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/dublin" rel="nofollow">Dublin</a>. But if you can find a way to Limerick, there does happen to be a direct train from there to Galway. Generally, we are not able to provide schedules over this forum, but it is currently shown to have a 1:36pm departure out of Limerick, and the ride takes about 2.5 hours..

    Changed reply in topic of What cities in Ireland have rail? by Jeff to Hi Gayle,<br /><br />Unfortunately, there are no rail lines up that side of <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/destinations/country-guides/article/ireland" rel="nofollow">Ireland</a>. The only way by rail would be to go all the way across the country to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/dublin" rel="nofollow">Dublin</a> first. The full connection would take at least about 5 hours.<br /><br />The closest stations to Dingle are Tralee or Killarny. There are buses that will take you to either of these stations. From Tralee or Killarny, you would take the train back to <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/dublin" rel="nofollow">Dublin</a>. In <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/dublin" rel="nofollow" title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/city/dublin">Dublin</a>, you would switch to a train to Galway. Depending on your departure time, you may also end up changing trains in Mallow in between Tralee/Killarny and <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/city/dublin" rel="nofollow">Dublin</a>..

The closest station to Shannon is Limerick, which is about 20 to 25 km away. There are regular buses from Shannon to Limerick. The operator for this bus service is Bus Éireann..

The ‘Jungfrau Railway’ itself runs mostly through a tunnel (the ‘Jungfrau Tunnel’), but there are two ‘sightseeing stops’ in the tunnel (‘Eigerwand’ and ‘Eismeer’) where passengers can exit their train and take in the views through windows built into the side of the mountain.<br /><br />At the Jungfraujoch Top of Europe station, you have access to the Sphinx Observation Terrace and the Aletsch Glacier (Great Aletsch Glacier). The Jungfraujoch station (Top of Europe) is the highest rail station in Europe, the Sphinx Observation Terrace is one of the highest astronomical observatories in the world, and the Aletsch Glacier (Great Aletsch Glacier) is the longest glacier in Europe..
