First topic message reminder :
This road connects Berkshire to Friezant. It's actually composed of two parts. One is gated and kept far secure of any influences of poverty. Of course, the ticket price for the train helps too.
The cars are very fancy, so this train is definitely not the standard class vehicle. It's known for its speed and comfort both, which are quite astounding. Rich people have been known to take entire vacations on the train alone, staying on the train back and forth for several days.
Tod and Yoren can each easily afford the train instead of the dirt path. Which is good, because haste is their mission here.
