    Yes, taking a train saves on the amount of fuel needed per person, and is a more eco-friendly way to travel.  CO2 emissions are decreased by a large percent, although this does depend on the energy efficiency of both train and airplane (some planes have started experimenting with biofuel).  The link below in citations shows some CO2 comparison statistics.
