There are few finer experiences than the thrill of a classic railway journey. This remains as true today as it was in 1825, when Stephenson's Rocket first steamed its way from Stockton to Darlington.
Great Railway Journeys of the World describes 95 outstanding railway journeys, experienced first-hand by a team of expert writers. Some of the journeys are quite short but steeped in history, notably the railway down India's once perilous Khyber Pass; and the narrow-gauge line that carried gold prospectors from the port of Skagway to Whitehorse, in the Yukon. Others, such as the transcontinental lines of Australia and Canada, the Eastern and Oriental Express from Singapore to Bangkok, and the Red Arrow's journey from Brussels to Hong Kong, cover thousands of miles.
For luxury and romance there is nothing to match the Orient Express, the Blue Train from Car Town to Pretoria, or the wonderfully nostalgic "Palace on Wheels" in Rajasthan; while the many extraordinary feats of engineering described include the Trans-Siberian Railway from Moscow to Vladivostock, the Trans-Andine Railway in Chile with its 26 tunnels in 44 miles, and the Brazilian line from Santos where the carriages are still hoisted up the Serro do Mar on a rope. For lovers of the latest and fastest trains, there is the high-speed line from Tokyo to Osaka, or London to Bern by Eurostar, while on many other journeys the trains are still hauled, on gauges broad and narrow, by lovingly preserved steam locomotives.
Long or short, modern or historic, broad-gauge or narrow, each of the journeys described in Great Railway Journeys of the World will x% het the appetites of rail enthusiasts everywhere. Packed with information, historical, geographical and technical, and with over 700 photographs of the world's most remarkable trains, and stunning scenery; this monumental book bears eloquent witness to the enduring romance of rail travel.
