Worlds’s 12 Most Amazing Rail Journeys

It’s easy to take our local train services for granted, yet rail travel has historically been connected with ideas of adventure and destiny. Hurtling along at 100 km/hr with cinematic scenes unfolding whilst safe in your seat, travelling by train can be a truly exciting venture. The glamour may be lost on the 8:05am to Peckham, but the variety of rail adventures to be had around the world is truly inspiring. From luxurious kangaroo fillet and boutique beer on the two-day Adelaide-Darwin run, to cruising to the Himalayas on India’s gritty Kalka-Shimla ‘toy train’. There’s something to please both...

A Scenic Trip on the Verde Canyon Railroad

I have traveled First Class on a plane exactly once, but it was the experience of a lifetime. Who knew airline seats could be so big and cushy? And that First Class passengers get much better food than the peons in the back? Aaah…that was the life and I have been hoping to be upgraded to First Class ever since. In the meantime, my husband and I recently found that First Class on a train trip is pretty fabulous as well. Heading to Arizona to explore the state in order to write several articles, I found information about a...

The Highlands Aboard the Royal Scotsman

The Scottish Highlands are a literary landscape full of tales of bravery and bravado, which I had been longing to visit. But since I lack the bravery and bravado to drive a rental car on the left side of the road, I needed another option. That’s how I found myself aboard the Belmond Royal Scotsman for a five-day luxury train trip through the land of Robert Burns and Sir Walter Scott. The nine-car passenger train holds just 36 passengers, and is part of the old Orient Express group. (The Orient Express company, which includes hotels and river cruises, recently...

The Rocky Mountaineer: A Train to the Sublime

Sometimes a train trip is more than transportation from Point A to Point B. My journey from Banff to Vancouver on the Rocky Mountaineer’s westbound route was be a sublime 594-mile traverse – all in daylight – across Canada’s majestic Rocky Mountains. Prior to the train adventure, I stayed, as many passengers do, at the baronial Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, known as “The Castle in the Rockies.” The hotel was built in a spectacular Rocky Mountain setting between the spring of 1887 and the spring of 1888 by the Canadian Pacific Railway. Over the years, it has been expanded,...
