I'm going on a vacation in a few days and I'm torn between my two lugguage pieces. I have a small/medium sizes hard cover lugguage. So hard I packed it, and everything fits, and I even have about 14 inches of extra space. While I was packing my mom came in and she was like "they're gonna break that". Well, I;ve had the lugguage for 2 years and have only ever used it for car travel, nothing like this trip. We are going via train. I also have this really old soft luggage. It's pink and kinda stained and it has a few holes. I paacked it to see if my things will fit, and theyre very snug, I wouldn't be able to bring anything bigger than an extra tshirt, but I guess I would care if it got a new stain or two. Which is the better option? Old and kinda sturdy or shiny and new?

Having worked in an airport, I can tell you that hard luggage protects until it fails CATASTROPHICALLY and then it's basically destroyed. I've had the same pair of suitcases (soft fabric) for almost two decades. They're nearing the end of their lives now... but they've gone through a LOT.
If you're going by train, will there be a baggage car or will it be racks in each coach? I ask because if it's just going to be racks, you might have trouble fitting that big hard cover bag.0
