More scenic than highway travel and more comfortable than modern airline travel, the delights of rail are on full display in this terrific illustrated guide to "60 unforgettable rail trips and how to experience them." Among the can't-miss itineraries are the overnight Johannesburg to Cape Town route, carrying travelers across South Africa's Great Karoo desert; Amtrak's classic California Zephyr trip, from Chicago to San Francisco; the 819-mile Beijing to Shanghai route, covered in six hours or less by the world's fastest passenger train; the luxurious Venice Simplon-Orient-Express between London and Venice; and the two-hour Kuranda Scenic Railway, chugging slowly through a picturesque corner of Australia's Far North Queensland. All aboard! (KG)
