Experience the world by train Why do people love trains so much? Tom Chesshyre is on a mission to find the answer by experiencing the world through train travel - on both epic and everyday rail routes, aboard every type of ride, from steam locomotives to bullet trains, meeting a cast of memorable characters who share a passion for train travel. 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.

Promotional Information

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

Reviews

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 *
