What makes a great railway journey? 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.
