Last month, I returned from a week in Italy by catching the 9.05am train from Milan. By changing at Lausanne and again in Paris, I was at Waterloo International by 8.15pm. En route, I enjoyed a spectacular journey taking in Lake Maggiore, the Swiss Alps and Lake Geneva, not to mention two rather good train meals.
Not so long ago, it took practically all day to travel from Paris to London by rail and sea.
