You are both right.  RF absorption is a combination of amount of material
and its properties.   I think the issue with trains is limited to newer ones
with special windows (I think they are conductive - some cars have them
too).  The combination of shielding from the roof and windows makes it
practically impossible to get a fix.   I was surprised that I managed to get
a fix in a jet aircraft a few months ago - I would have expected this to be
a good shield too.

Is this correct?

I assumed the reason I had trouble getting reception on board trains
because of what their roofs were screened with.
I can't believe they'd put much mass up there.
