Product description

Review

'This is an engaging, enjoyable and warm-hearted book that will appeal as much to general readers as to lovers of trains... Recommended.'

(Simon Bradley, author of The Railways)

‘Amusing and insightful book’

(E&T Magazine)

'Affectionate'

(Wanderlust Magazine)

‘Evocative mix of thrill rides and gentle journeys worldwide. Even if locomotives and rolling stock leave you cold, you’ll enjoy the author’s trademark dry humour.’

(World of Cruising Magazine)

Review

‘Trains, dry wit, more trains, evocative descriptions, more trains, fascinating people and more trains – what is there not to like?’

(Christian Wolmar)

'Funny and illuminating from Crewe to Korea, Ticket to Ride is a hugely entertaining account of the author’s travels on the rails the world over – chance encounters  fly like sparks'

(Sara Wheeler)

‘Like mini-odysseys, Chesshyre’s railway journeys are by turns gentle and awesome, and full of surprises’

(John Gimlette)

'Tom’s ticket certainly scores all the best rides: fast rides and slow ones, short trips and long ones. But most important are the names: why would any trainspotter (let alone a gricer) pass up the Reunification Express or, even better the Orient Express, for a mere airplane?'

(Tony Wheeler)
