Description

In the heroic days of rail travel, you could dine on kippers and champagne aboard the Brighton Belle; smoke a post-prandial cigar as the Golden Arrow approached Paris, or be shaved by the Flying Scotsman's on-board barber. Everyone from schoolboys to socialites knew of these glamorous trains. Andrew Martin recreates famous train journeys by travelling aboard their nearest modern day equivalents, describing the disappearance of the extravagance and luxury.

Professional reviews

"Martin's five journeys combine humour, historical anecdote and reportage from the present and romantic evocations of the past. ‘His wonderfully well-informed, anecdotal prose punches more than just tickets.’ TIMES ‘A bittersweet journey of contrasts between romance and reality.’ SAGA"
