From the train up the Jungfrau -- a mountain in Switzerland. Unadorned so you don't get distracted from the idyllic Alpine views through the window. Jungfrau means "Virgin" in German. Visit the V pages for more bags from the same firm?

Thanks to Steffen Mathias. (2002)

I don't know what else to call this Swedish plastic bag. The grey man is throwing what appears to be a perfectly good piece of paper into an office wastepaper basket.

For the winding trip from Cusco to Machu Pichu. Concentrate on the scenery: there's nothing to see on this bag.

Trevlig resa!, this pretty plastic bag exhorts. No idea what this means. And I don't know what "SJ" means either. Anyone who speaks Swedish want to enlighten us?

Enlightenment comes from Ola Rinta-Koski of Brisbane, who says that Trevlig resa! means "Have a nice trip!" and SJ stands for Statens Järnvägar = Swedish Rail (literally "National Railways")

Thanks to Josef Gebele for the bag (2004), and of course to Ola for the translation.


Stockholm airport express train

Thoughtful people, the Swedes: they provide a bag on the airport train in case the thought of flying makes you feel sick.

"Lägg gärna ditt skräp här" it tells you ("Please put your litter here", in case you didn't get that)


Swedish train

This one says "Gör tågresan till ett rent nöje!"

Ola Rinta-Koski of Brisbane says this means "Make the train trip a pure pleasure!" (or in one of those hilarious double-entendres beloved in the bagworld, "...a clean pleasure").

Tranz Scenic

A fascinating bag that doubles as a route map and an advertisement for New Zealand's scenic railway system.

Via Rail Canada

A paper bag large enough to hold a whole observation car's worth of garbage on a long trip over the Rockies.

Operation Lifesaver is an American campaign to stop people crossing level crossings when a train is coming. Sounds like a good idea, but there's not much point in convincing passengers once they're on the train, is there?

Perhaps the idea is to stop them from getting off and crossing the tracks in front of the train as it pulls out of the station.

That would make it like those passenger announcements on board planes that tell you to put your baggage in the overhead locker - when you're already in your seat and the plane in taxiing along the runway.
