From the back cover of the 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.
