thanks for your query.
You have not mentioned exact position of the placenta currently - slightly better could mean anything !
You should consult your healthcare provider for this information as she has the recent information of the scan in hand.
If the placenta has migrated to the upper segment, and she can see no other risky findings, then at 19 weeks, train travel should be safe.
Take care.
