Riding the train to Machu Picchu is a magical experience. The train is neat and clean and there's plenty of room to spread your legs, and clean bathroom facilities as well. Be sure to get to the station in plenty of time. Everyone boards at once just before departure, and the general admittance line forms early. It's a bit expensive, but there's nothing like the landscape and views you'll see through the glass-top rail car. The ride is slow and deliberate through the mountain passes, 3 to 3/12 hours and then you're off to find your bus to ride to the top. Take your time, there are plenty of buses. There's a fashion show on the long ride back down, as it's dark and not much to see, so be aware of the prices of the items for sale. You'll pay much for the convenience, the same items are much less expensive at the local markets you'll pass all day long. Have fun!
