USA by Rail reveals in comprehensive and entertaining style the unique pleasures of North American passenger trains. The author travelled over 60,000 miles throughout the United States and Canada to cover every destination and route, and the book has all the practical information needed to make reservations, purchase tickets and find your way about train stations. It also contains invaluable advice for sightseeing,  transport and accommodation in 38 major cities along the way.

From the back cover of previous editions of this book:

Rail travel in the USA is the ultimate in luxury: comfortable, fast and quiet, with glass-domed trains to lure the traveller attracted by the grandeur of the Rockies and the sheer vastness of the great plains. While Amtrak takes the laurels for speed and efficiency, in scenic areas there are still steam trains to be found, privately financed and inexorably romantic.

USA by Rail describes in detail 27 long-distance rail journeys in the United States, with coverage of an additional 12 routes across Canada, all fully updated for this second edition. From the Atlantic to the Pacific, from the Mexican border to polar bear country, there is no better way to see the sights, make new friends and discover North America than to travel by train.

  • How to make the most of the rail pass
  • Over 500 destinations described
  • Sightseeing and accommodations in 39 major cities
  • 100 steam railways and museums
  • Area maps and route plans
