Description
"All Aboard—first published in 1995, and here revised and updated—is much more than a mile-by-mile scenery guide for train travelers. Written for both veteran train travelers and those considering their first rail journey, it will keep any trip on track with its insightful travel trips and information about how North American railroads operate. All Aboard presents how and why the first railroads came about, describes the building of America’s transcontinental railroad, and explains how individual trains are operated. Railway expert Jim Loomis also offers advice that can only come from a veteran traveler on essential topics such as booking trips, finding the lowest fares, avoiding pitfalls, packing for an overnight trip, what to do on board, and whom to tip and how much. This latest, fifth edition includes up-to-date information on modern high-speed rail projects in California, Texas, and Florida, new trains on the Copper Canyon route in Mexico, current reports on the legal disputes between freight railroads and Amtrak, and much, much more"--,Provided by publisher.
