Comments to eBook Britain from the Rails: A Window Gazer's Guide (Bradt Rail Guides)

Train travel is often valued according to how fast we get to wherever we are going. This guide reminds us that we can do more than merely connect two dots, origin and destination, with the intervening country left a blur. By choosing slower trains and more revealing routes, the journey itself becomes a worth-while part of our experience. The author is good-humored (likes puns) and obviously loves his subject, and I assume he knows his subject as well as he seems to--I haven't put it to the test yet. But I can say his information is detailed and the chosen routes are inviting, and the idea is a good one.

A friend and I are planning to tour Great Britain by rail soon. I received this book yesterday and am already thrilled w/ it. It's informative, and I love the author's sense of humor. He's already given me more reasons to take one of the side trips we were already interested in. I only wish this book was available in Kindle format b/c I don't relish schlepping it along w/ my luggage as we tour by train. But schlepp it, I will--it's that good!

The maps are especially nice, showing you how to plan your walking tour so as to end back at the train, saving a lot of wear and tear on your feet.

After growing up in England with family working for the Great Western Railway (GWR), this book was excellent and brought back many happy memories.
