Ah, don't sweat the train ride! We did it with Gemma and she was a little freaked out at first, but after a few minutes she just fell asleep in my lap. When we got home, she was totally fine and acted as if she never had to ride the scary train. We also don't drive so a ride or the train was our only option, and no one was available to drive us. I wasn't going to chance losing out on Gemma waiting for someone to give us a ride, so I said screw it, we're taking the train! All worked out perfectly fine.
