* Riding on the outside is a much more exciting (and potentially deadly) way to travel by train than riding inside of it. You can feel the wind and observe your train during it's motion.
* Extended view of surrounding area. If you ride inside the train, you can only watch a small part of countryside and railway infrastructure through a side windows, especially if windows don't allow you to protrude from it. If you ride on the outside, you have a 180-degree or 360-degree panoramic view, which can be much more wide than a view from train driver's cab.
* Opportunity to travel by train for free, without having a ticket.
