train travel vs. plane travel in Europe, which is more economical?

Weekend trip planning, I’ve been thinking, what’s the most economical way to go about things when it came to traveling within Europe, should I take the train, or should I take the plane? After a little research, what I found out is that train travel, albeit time consuming, is far more economical way of travel, given that 40 USD train ticket, gets you from one city to another city without having to first get yourself to the Airport, there’s no added luggage fees, and of course, you get to experience more of Europe this way, there are midpoint stops at certain cities and of course, one can always peer out of the window and admire the landscapes during travel. Another tip is book ahead of time to save money, because like plane tickets, prices do go up as it gets closer to departure time.
