Book Description

1 Oct 2009 Time Out Guides

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.

About the Author

Founded in 1968, Time Out has grown from humble beginnings into the leading resource for anyone wanting to know what’s happening in the world’s greatest cities. Alongside our influential weeklies in London, New York, Chicago and Dubai, we publish more than 20 magazines in cities as varied as Beijing and Beirut; a range of travel books, with City Guides now joined by pocket-sized Shortlist series; and an information-packed website. The company remains proudly independent, still owned by Tony Elliott four decades after he launched Time Out London. Written by local experts, and illustrated with original photography, our books also retain their independence. No business has been featured because it has advertised, and all restaurants and bars are visited and reviewed anonymously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Train Journeys of the World 24 Jan 2012
Well written taster descriptions of rail trips world-wide, including UK.
Printed, in Europe for a change, on quality paper and well illustrated.
This excellent book is for potential travellers more than railway buffs.
Some good leads included to get you on the tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great train journey read 26 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I know nothing about trains from an enthusiast view point all I know is I love traveling on them and this book is a great way to get the feel of train journeys in other countries and continents and it does wet the appetite to climb onboard and see the world at a more civilised pace. I would recommend this book to all who love train travel and general adventure. I got the book in quick time so well done the supplier.
