There are some very expensive, but luxurious train trips in the world, most of which wind through rustic mountains or speed across pristine landscapes while pampering their customers. The most expensive train trip in the world, however, does not offer such an experience. It is a Tube trip from Covent Garden and Leicester Square on the Piccadilly line, a trip that covers only .26 km (.16 mi.) in 43 seconds. It costs £4 ($7.75), making it more than twice as expensive as a trip on the Tokyo metro and four times as much as a ride on the NYC subway. And if you took that pricing scheme and extended it to other types of travel, a trip from Los Angeles to New York (2462 miles) would end up costing $119,253.13.
