They are mostly electric, also mostly filled to the brim.
I can be certain of a seat in my car. It departs from my house and arrives at my destination, when I want, without switchovers.

I had a long commute by train for 3 years, and swore never to set foot in a train again. My father in law is a volunteer conductor on the Steamtrain Goes-Borsele, for which I gladly make an exception. My last 10 rail travels have been steam powered
