Convenient baggage service does not necessarily mean checked baggage service as you can still carry on most baggage. Have you ever ridden the Northeast Corridor? Very few trains with checked baggage service. Trains packed with people traveling with luggage.

You example seems crazy only if you think about it superficially. If I had hours and no life I would explain in detail why.
