    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi David,<br /><br />Only because you have the bag, you can make this trip just like anyone would be able to. A bicycle can be taken on board any train if contained within a purpose-designed bicycle bag (measuring no more than 120cm x 90cm). A bike can fit in such a bag with the wheels and pedals detached and the handlebars parallel to the frame.
