Is it possible to keep it fresh during a long distance travel by train? Normal styrofoam boxes won't work I guess, what about thermos flasks?

My dad used to buy icecream after a long day work for us (it was a 3 hour drive.) He used styrofoam boxes with some dry ice. Not sure if it can hold up till 12 hours.

Yup, dry ice is the key. To make it last longer, use more dry ice (and the best-quality ice chest you can fit in your luggage). – Marti Oct 19 '11 at 22:13
Hadn't thought about dry ice. Sounds good, thanks. – Markus Oct 19 '11 at 22:38
