USA by Rail : Plus Canada's Main Routes Paperback
by John Pitt
Part of the Bradt Travel Guides series
The American train journey has always had a strong hold on the imagination.
Ever-changing landscapes pass by on the other side of the glass, from the primeval-looking Joshua trees of the Mojave Desert and the saw-toothed peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the pounding surf of the Pacific and Atlantic coasts. And in these ecologically-conscious times, rail travel offers a peace of mind that cannot be matched by a stressful domestic flight. Now in its eighth edition, this book covers all the major routes across the United States and Canada.
Perfect for the well-planned traveller and the whimsical day-dreamer alike, it contains both practical information and background on the places that you'll see.
Whatever the route, sit back, relax and watch a breathtaking continent unfold. 37 long distance routes in the USA and Canada Sightseeing highlights for 38 major cities Accommodation - cheap to chic Area maps and detailed route plans History of trains in North America Information about steam railways and museums
