Presents a selection of forty of the world's best train journeys, from nostalgic steam lines to high-speed locomotives.
Time Out Great Train Journeys is a selection of forty of the world's best train journeys, from nostalgic steam trains to state of the art high-speed locomotives. Beautifully illustrated and written with passion, it will appeal to dyed-in-the-wool railway enthusiasts, but also reaches out to a new generation of train travellers, both actual and armchair. Divided into inspiring sections such as Crossing Continents, State of the Art, Cultural Experiences, Nostalgia and Scenic Spectaculars, this book will appeal to people for whom rail journeys reflect the contemporary mood of travel which cherishes the individual, the ethical and the characterful - time well spent above time quickly spent. Trains no longer belong only to trainspotters, and Time Out Great Train Journeys is the first train book to have a contemporary, quirkily fashionable feel to it.
