Reviews
Kids love trains, grown-ups love trains and everybody loves a good train museum, but how do you find these great train destinations in North America? The Tourist Trains Guidebook, that’s how, a tried and tested guide by staff and contributors to Trains magazine. This updated Sixth edition features 525 railroad attractions across the United States and Canada, from Ohio’s historic Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum and the Sugar Cane steam train of Hawaii to the spectacular Cumbres & Toltec Railroad and Canada’s unique Rocky Mountaineer. For 200 of the most popular train rides and museums, full-page reviews provide a detailed look at the activities at each site and the surrounding area. This comprehensive book also includes capsule descriptions of hundreds of other interesting trains, trolleys, museums, depots and other rail sites. With excellent colour photographs throughout, it is an invaluable guide that will appeal to train buffs, travellers interested in historic trains and sites, and families looking for child-friendly vacations. About 80% of the book contains new material in a redesigned easy-to-read format, with individual sites organized by region. As editor Jim Wrinn, of Trains Magazine, says, ‘There are train trips that are about scenic wonders, train trips that are about bird-watching … and even trains that take you to a gold mine.’ Full contact details and website addresses help make this the perfect book for train junkies to plan their next vacation. Passenger train travel is enjoying a renaissance and The Tourist Trains Guidebook is the most exhaustive railroad-themed travel guide around. Its handy size also means that it fits snugly inside a backpack to make it the perfect travel companion. - John Pitt USA by Rail
