The Flavorpill editors write that the response to this survey was "overwhelming," and that they can't believe that "this enchanting mode of transport" -- train travel -- could ever have been replaced by air travel: "If you've flown anywhere lately you know that the airport experience today is a far cry from the much more civilized approach to globe-trotting represented by the drop-dead gorgeous constructions we've rounded up here.
