This lively guide takes an in-depth look at 40 of the world's best train journeys, from short to long, luxurious to decidedly less so, nostalgic steam lines to the latest high-tech locomotives. Covering a variety of reader interests, the book is divided into inspiring sections such as Crossing Continents, State of the Art, Cultural Experiences, Nostalgia, and Scenic Spectaculars. Every journey includes a bells-and-whistles fact box giving useful and amusing insider tips — what to pack, the best photo-ops, maximizing the best the trip has to offer, and more. All journeys are planned as complete vacations and offer suggestions for memorable side trips. Featuring stunning photographs throughout, Time Out Great Train Journeys is as beautiful as it is practical, and is an indispensable reference for any rail buff.
