Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
4.5 hours, compared to a 45 min flight!  LOL.  But the difference is really diminished when you factor in the commute to and from the airport, the fact that you are supposed to get to the airport 2 hours early and of course, the holiday crowds that exacerbate everthing.  Door to door it is about 4 hours to take the plane home, and a little over 5 hours to take the train.

Exactly. Flight times are grossly misleading.

And when you allow for the much more useful time expenditure on a train you're way ahead ...
