Some will say the distance, or the countryside, or the scenery, while others will be fascinated by the locomotive that pulls the train or the people they meet on the way. All these factors and more have a part to play in the journeys described in this book, which range from the 16-km journey from Leicester to Loughborough that set Thomas Cook on his career, to the journey of the Red Arrow, which travels halfway around the world from Brussels to Hong Kong. This volume includes current journeys as well as historical accounts of routes that are no longer possible. Divided into two sections - "Great Journeys of the West" and "Great Journeys of the East" - the journeys are arranged geographically from North America to the South Pacific. Quantity Available: 1.
