Steam-powered journeys include France's Vivarais Line and the USA's Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. These superlative journeys include the incredibly high (from Puno to Cuzco in Peru), the dramatically steep (the Khyber Pass), and what may well be the most famous, the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express. Luxury cruise trains are well represented, including India's Royal Orient Express, Africa's Blue Train and Spain's Al Andalus - as are more adventurous routes such as Beijing to Hanoi. Each trip is evocatively written up by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic railway travel writer. All the journeys can still be made, and practical information and contact details are given for those who want to undertake the journeys themselves." --Publisher's description."@en ;
