My aim is to capture the simple pleasures of trains; the gentle joy that comes from seeing the world as the wheels rattle and roll, and the miles tick by.

In Ticket to Ride, travel writer Tom Chesshyre shines a light on the global "rail revolution" that is currently under way. On train rides in Kosovo, Macedonia, China, India, Turkey, Iran, Finland, Russia, Australia, France, America, and more, the friendly and dry-witted Englishman seeks to discover why "the passion for trains runs strong" all around the world. With light political commentary on his many destinations and stories of the fascinating rail enthusiasts he encounters along his journeys, this relaxing travelogue chugs along with joy. (CH)
