Hello sir, thanks for trusting health care magic.
Congratulations for the new phase of life.
I would like to know the date of her last menstrual period and her usual cycle length so that I can tell you the date for first ultrasound.
Yes she can very well travel by train or plane with adequate precautions in the form of good water intake and avoid outside food (if via train journey).
Take care
