Publisher's Description

Experience the thrill of traveling by rail with stunning photographs of passenger trains from around the globe. Take a trip through the colorful history of passenger trains--and along those tracks where passenger rail still thrives. Learn how passenger trains developed from the Baltimore & Ohio's horse-drawn, stagecoach-like cars to France's trendsetting TGVs, the world's fastest trains. Discover the magic of sitting in a dome car, sleeping in a Pullman, dining on rails, and riding such grand trains as the Canadian, among the world's finest.
