The stupendous Chinese feat of civil engineering that pushed a railway across the permafrost to Lhasa in Tibet. The scenic Coast Starlight train from Seattle to LA, and a stupendous 2,000-mile trip across India, from Gujarat's parched salt flats to the lush semi-tropics of Assam. Following the success of Aurum's Last Call for the Dining Car. the Telegraph's deputy travel editor Michael Kerr has compiled a hugely engrossing second volume of armchair travel on trains around the world. Authors include Nicholas Shakespeare, Gavin Bell and Simon Heffer, and from the Telegraph's archive come pieces by John Betjeman on the Great Western Railway, Jenny Diski, Dervla Murphy and Alexander McCall Smith."@en ;
