"Time Out Great Train Journeys" is a selection of forty of the world's best train journeys, from nostalgic steam lines to state of the art high-speed locomotives. Beautifully illustrated and written with passion, it will appeal to dyed-in-the-wool enthusiasts, but also reaches out to a new generation of train travelers, 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. Journey highlights across Australia, north to south and east to west Genoa to the Cinque Terre villages and La Spezia and Pisa, Italy. Isolated Italian coastal villages opened up by train Lhasa to Golmud, the highest railway in the world (oxygen provided), finished in 2006 Istanbul to Aleppo, Syria, on the Toros Express Cairo to Aswan express, along the Nile The Inlandsbanan, Sweden. Into the core of the Swedish wilderness, across the Arctic Circle The North York Moors railway, UK: immaculate family retro.

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.
