    A journey in/by train

    Hi
    I understand that "a journey by train" is more appropriate.
    But I wish to know if this is correct as well: "a journey in train"

    If I am right, the first statement emphasizes more on how the journey was undertaken
    But I want to post some photos taken during the trip that captures the moments of the journey itself.
    Is it fine to use the second statement?

    No. You can't say "a journey in train".

    You took a train journey. You travelled by train. You took some photos from the train (while it was moving).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: A journey in/by train

    Thanks for clarifying. This forum is amazing. I am wondering why I did not find it earlier.

    So what will an appropriate title for my photo album?
    "A train journey" - it is still emphasizing more on the 'mode' of travel.
    "Photos taken from a train" doesn't seem to be a nice title for a photo album.

    Any suggestions on a 'three word' title for my collection?
