    Good for you but not the passengers so much!

      I like eggs, and I even like tuna fish salad with boiled eggs in it, but I CAN'T STAND egg salad.  It's like eating a fart.

    Soup or Chili or similar in a Thermos jar would be safer.

    Yes but what is yellow and white and goes through a train tunnel at 70 mph? A train drivers egg sandwich

    No, because egg sandwiches should be kept refrigerated and most trains don't have refrigerators for passengers to use.

    Most egg salad recipes include mayo which is perishable. Better off just bringing hard boiled eggs in the shell. Or jerky.

    Yes. European cultures don't ever refrigerate eggs. The reason they don't is because they are truly safe as long as they're not placed in a colder environment. When an egg is cooled, like if it were put in a refrigerator or cooler, and then placed or kept at room temperature it begins to sweat. The sweat fascilitates the growth of bacteria. So as long as you cook the eggs and either put and keep them in a cooler or don't cool them at all they'll be safe to eat for a pretty good length of time after you package them.

    Raw eggs...no. If you're just cracking raw eggs on to bread that's not a good idea for a long trip. That should be refrigerated until eaten or eaten almost immediately. Raw eggs can attract and start growing bacteria that can make us sick or give us different infections pretty quickly in the right (well...wrong) conditions such as leaving the inside raw stuff in an egg out in the open air for a bit.

      Egg salad... generally that means the protective shell has been removed.

    Only if you wish to eat unaccompanied.

    If that's what you want and you can keep them cool, sure...

    Nope, but peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are quite safe, as are many meat sandwiches if they are pre-cooled and you don't ride, while sticking them in the window.

    If it contains mayonnaise and the weather is hot then no. It’ll spoil faster in warm weather.
