Are the two smaller members of your family children? Carrying children's toys, strollers, luggage, diapers, clothing, snacks, child seats, cribs, etc. in a personal motor vehicle is a lot easier than schlepping them on and off and between multiple transport modes in all weather conditions, especially when such an effort is unnecessary.

If you and your parents are typical of most Europeans, you and they do not live next door to the train station.
