Ticket to Ride

Experience the world by train Why do people love trains so much?

Join him on the rails and off the beaten track as he embarks on an exhilarating whistle-stop tour around the globe, from Sri Lanka to Iran via Crewe, Inverness, the Australian outback and beyond.

1 '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
