About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book contains interesting snapshots of railway development in China utilizing documents obtained in Hong Kong as well as in mainland China. One unique resource is an unpublished Chinese language manuscript describing the history of Chinese railways by Li Shuming. This manuscript provides some interesting and amusing insights into the great political game played by foreign powers as they tried to gain influence through building railways in China, primarily for their own benefit. Against this historical backdrop, the book includes several amusing and informative descriptions of past and present day rail travels in China which also give incisive insights into the life of ordinary Chinese people. Tom Kennedy is a professional transport economist. He has worked in more than 40 countries including multiple trips to China and has a deep passion for railways - their historical development as well as riding trains in some unusual and inhospitable parts of the world. This is his second book; the first described his rail journey in Africa from Cape Town to Cairo. Seller Inventory # APC9781507763421

About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book contains a descriptive travelogue of the author s rail journey following the historic Cape to Cairo route envisaged by Cecil Rhodes more than 100 years ago as an exercise in British imperialism. While construction of the rail link was never completed in totality, most of the distance can be covered by passenger trains, in varying degrees of comfort and cleanliness, immersing the traveler in African life on the train and in the passing scenery along the railway line. Rail travel descriptions are richly enhanced by historical sketches of railway development in each country and many anecdotes of previous travelers, explorers and railway builders that formed African railway networks as they exist today. The story begins with the author s telling of his first arrival in South Africa in 1981 for a three-year contract that became thirty. Southern Africa was still a favorite haunt of steam locomotive enthusiasts, particularly along the route between Kimberley and De Aar and the Bulawayo - Victoria Falls line. However, most of the trains included in this travelogue were pulled by poorly - maintained diesel - electric motive power. Journeys were fraught with mechanical failures (several hours standing in the desert, just outside of Khartoum North station) and by non-operational signal systems (throughout Zambia). Keeping to the timetable was accomplished more strictly in the southern part of the continent (South Africa/Botswana/Zimbabwe) but began to deteriorate moving northward with Sudan being the worst time - keeper with a 13 - hour delay. But the point was not to arrive dead on time but to enjoy the somewhat dubious distinction of riding some of the dirtiest trains on the planet with thieves as traveling companions while at the same time crossing some most interesting topography and finding many amiable and personable Africans as travel mates. These journeys were mostly pleasurable to endure, intensely interesting and challenging to put down on paper and hopefully, the reader will share the enthusiasm of the author in living these journeys through the words set down in this book.

About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Bawenda of the Spelonken (Transvaal): A Contribution Towards the Psychology and Folk-Lore of African Peoples The African Interior is still only in the earlier stages of civilised progress. Railways and telegraphs are making vast strides, but they have still to over take and develop enormous areas. The tourist and the trader, the explorer and the prospector, the pioneers of colonisation and enterprise, have after all but skimmed the surface of the Dark Continent, and have here and there lifted the veil of the mysterious and the magnificent. But the full volume of revelation and of interest is as yet in great part unopened, though the pace is ever quickening as the Cape Cairo Railroad advance proceeds, and the spinal cord of the Dark Continent is thus submitted to the-discoverer s eye and the analyst s assessments.

About this Item: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 94 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.2in.This book contains a descriptive travelogue of the authors rail journey following the historic Cape to Cairo route envisaged by Cecil Rhodes more than 100 years ago as an exercise in British imperialism. While construction of the rail link was never completed in totality, most of the distance can be covered by passenger trains, in varying degrees of comfort and cleanliness, immersing the traveler in African life on the train and in the passing scenery along the railway line. Rail travel descriptions are richly enhanced by historical sketches of railway development in each country and many anecdotes of previous travelers, explorers and railway builders that formed African railway networks as they exist today. The story begins with the authors telling of his first arrival in South Africa in 1981 for a three-year contract that became thirty. Southern Africa was still a favorite haunt of steam locomotive enthusiasts, particularly along the route between Kimberley and De Aar and the Bulawayo Victoria Falls line. However, most of the trains included in this travelogue were pulled by poorly maintained diesel electric motive power. Journeys were fraught with mechanical failures (several hours standing in the desert, just outside of Khartoum North station) and by non-operational signal systems (throughout Zambia). Keeping to the timetable was accomplished more strictly in the southern part of the continent (South AfricaBotswanaZimbabwe) but began to deteriorate moving northward with Sudan being the worst time keeper with a 13 hour delay. But the point was not to arrive dead on time but to enjoy the somewhat dubious distinction of riding some of the dirtiest trains on the planet with thieves as traveling companions while at the same time crossing some most interesting topography and finding many amiable and personable Africans as travel mates. These journeys were mostly pleasurable to endure, intensely interesting and challenging to put down on paper and hopefully, the reader will share the enthusiasm of the author in living these journeys through the words set down in this book.

About this Item: Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 198 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.Excerpt from The Bawenda of the Spelonken (Transvaal): A Contribution Towards the Psychology and Folk-Lore of African PeoplesThe African Interior is still only in the earlier stages of civilised progress. Railways and telegraphs are making vast strides, but they have still to overtake and develop enormous areas. The tourist and the trader, the explorer and the prospector, the pioneers of colonisation and enterprise, have after all but skimmed the surface of the Dark Continent, and have here and there lifted the veil of the mysterious and the magnificent. But the full volume of revelation and of interest is as yet in great part unopened, though the pace is ever quickening as the Cape-Cairo Railroad advance proceeds, and the spinal cord of the Dark Continent is thus submitted to the discoverers eye and the analysts assessments. The land and its resources, its wealth and its potentials, lend themselves more readily to the perceptions than do the African native races. The latter are more secretive, retentive, and conservative of modes than is the country of their origin. But the old order changeth. The native African advance has begun. Slowly but surely the character of the greater tribes is yielding to a transition bred of intercourse with Europeans.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Amtrak has been much maligned by disgruntled passengers and politicians as providing poor service. But, how does Amtrak s service compare with trains overseas? Do we, indeed, have substandard rail service, or if a rigorous cost and service comparison were made, would it show that our services are on par with the world? In this book, the author compares Amtrak travel experiences with some of the best (and worst) rail travel ordeals overseas and makes a structured cost and service quality comparison with similar trains in other countries. Both high - speed and long - distance trains are included in these comparisons. The author has lived and worked extensively overseas as a railway consultant and has several books to his credit, including descriptions of his travels from Cape to Cairo, the Trans - Siberian Railway, rail travel in Japan and historical sketches of railway development in China.
