    Travel by train can be extremely efficient. I don’t like looking to an industry source to show how much more efficient it is than other modes of transportation, but I do know it is more efficient than either driving or flying. Amtrak says it sites DOE data trains can be more than 20% more efficient than planes and 28% more efficient than cars. 

    And affirmed that a freight train can move a ton of freight 436 miles on a gallon of diesel. Try getting those results in your car or on a plane.
