    Looking to do this some time in early March. I need to be in CM for a Thai massage class on the 12th. I've never taken the train from BK to CM and heard it was a fun trip.

    Any of you guys up for this or have similar plans?

    Just putting this out in the universe....

    Nope. Taking the regular inexpensive train!

    Which class? Riding in a second class sleeper was one of my best memories as a kid. Though, if you ride third class you'll likely get to be in a car filled with drunk soldiers.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Was going to do first or second. You made third sound appealing.
