A second collection of enthralling accounts of the most spectacular train trips from around the world

 

Readers will be immersed in evocative accounts of the Desert Express from Windhoek in Namibia, the stupendous Chinese feat of civil engineering that pushed a railway across the permafrost to Lhasa in Tibet, the scenic Coast Starlight train from Seattle to L.A., and a stupendous 2,000-mile trip across India, from Gujarat's parched salt flats to the lush semitropics of Assam. Following on Last Call for the Dining Car, Michael Kerr has compiled a hugely engrossing second volume of armchair travel on trains around the world, from such authors as Gavin Bell, John Betjeman, Jenny Diski, Simon Heffer, Dervla Murphy, Nicholas Shakespeare, and Alexander McCall Smith.

This is a treasure of travel writing.' - Patrick Neale The Bookseller 'An exceptionally well-chosen collection...the book itself amounts to a pleasurable journey...punctuated by pithy, profound anecdotal nuggets.'

Book Description Aurum, 2011. 1-82. Condition: New. 'Railway termini are our gates to the glorious and the unknown', wrote EM Forster, 'Through them we pass out into adventure and sunshine'. This much-acclaimed collection of journeys from the pages of the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph celebrates the magic of the railway, whether simply travelling in Cornwall or (with difficulty) in Cuba; following famous routes such as the Trans-Mongolian or India's Maharajas' Express; or being propositioned by a stranger on a train.
