Description: A collection of stories about favorite train journeys by an inveterate railway enthusiast and train traveler. The author was guided by his passion for railroads, as he traveled with notebook and camera to record his adventures on the world’s most fabulous trains–not only the glamorous and luxurious passenger lines but also hard-working freighters. Middleton’s North American treks included a long journey north through Manitoba to polar bear country on the Hudson Bay, a trip to Minnesota’s Mesabi Range to haul a boatload of iron ore to Lake Superior behind a giant Yellowstone articulated steam locomotive, and a ride across Costa Rica from the Atlantic to the Pacific by narrow-gauge railway. Train aficionados and armchair travelers will find this an enchanting and nostalgic insider’s view of railway travel.
