Experience 60 of the world's greatest and most unforgettable train journeys, from classic long-distance trips like Western Canada's Rocky Mountaineer and Darwin to Adelaide's The Ghan, to little-known gems on regular commuting lines.

We've always had a soft spot for trains. We know the moment a train pulls out of a station bound for somewhere fantastic is when the adventure truly starts. Amazing Train Journeys is the culmination of asking more than 200 travel writers for their absolute favourites.

Some are epic international adventures, others short suburban routes along stunning coastline. There are incredible feats of engineering, trains that snake their way through mountain peaks, and even those which have achieved Unesco World Heritage status.

Each profile contains practical information including ticket options, timetables and stops, plus inspiring photos and illustrated maps. Journeys include:

Africa & the Middle East:

Johannesburg to Cape Town (South Africa)
Andimeshk to Dorud (Iran)
Bulawayo to Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

The Americas:

The California Zephyr (USA)
Perurail's Lake Titicaca Railway (Peru)
The Serra Verde Express (Brazil)
