The poem really traces the metaphorical journey that the speaker undertakes
towards sef-discovery, of course through a train ride of sorts as
exemplified in the poem. Obstacles faced along the way aside, the speaker
experiences a regeneration, being reborn - as pure as a baby. Perhaps one
may like to relate this to Plath herself; the hardship and obstacles she
encountered could have forced her to want to get somewhere - anywhere where
she can find solace and comfort away from a pathetic, oppressive life. This
is thus a poem about courage - about how that is manifest through her
constant struggles in life - towards a final destination.
