9780007559350: The Times Great Railway Journeys of the World: Discover the History, Route and Sites of 50 Famous Railway Lines

Glorious train journeys from each continent and 35 countries are profiled   Discover the fascinating histories and routes of 50 of the world's most scenic railways, with detailed text on history, geography, and present-day operations, complemented by The Times mapping and a selection of high-quality photographs. Journeys include Le Petit Train Jaune in the Pyrenees featuring France's highest railway station; Cape Town to Kimberley in South Africa—a feat of late Victorian engineering through the Hex River Mountains and across the Karoo Desert; and the Qinghai-Tibet Railway in China, which contains the highest railway, tunnel, and station in the world. Readers will also journey along the Trans-Australian Railway in Australia, which contains the world's longest stretch of dead straight track; the Cumbres & Toltec Railroad which takes passengers on an awe-inspiring scenic 64-mile journey through the Rocky Mountains along the Colorado-New Mexico border; and La Trochita in Argentina where original oil-fired steam locomotives travel along a narrow gauge railway in the shadow of the Andes Mountains.
