Written for both veterans and those considering their first rail journey, this guide is an expansive resource for train travel and the broader world of rail transit in the United States and Canada. Bridging the past with the present, the handbook explores the origins of the rail systems, the monumental task of building America's first trans-continental railroad, passenger and freight railroad operations, and the differences between the various lines. The new edition includes updated information on ticketing procedures, routes, Amtrak's simplified fare structures, and the explosion of railroad-related data such as schedules and ticket purchase options available on the internet. In addition to offering time-tested advice on finding the lowest fares, avoiding pitfalls, packing for an overnight trip, when to board, and whom to tip and how much, the reference presents a number of rail itineraries-from day trips to see the colors of the fall season to lengthy journeys that will take more adventurous travelers around the entire country. A perspective on high-speed lines-such as proposed links between Los Angeles and San Francisco and Chicago to St. Louis-envisions the future of rail transportation.

Appleton s Railway Guide to the USA and Canada

Author: D. Appleton
Publisher: Simon & Schuster UK
ISBN: 1471159949
Release Date: 2017-06-13
Genre: Travel

A facsimile edition of the classic 1879 travel guide—often referred to as “Appleton’s Guide”—that inspired the Great American Railroad Journeys PBS television series with Michael Portillo. Appleton’s Railway Guide to the United States & Canada was originally published in two volumes, describing the variety of attractions offered in each North American town or city the train traveler would encounter along the railway system's numerous routes. It was the first tourist guide specifically organized around railway journeys, offering a rare glimpse through the carriage window of a continent lost to history. As with many guidebooks of the era, Appleton Guides became obsolete as routes and destinations became less popular and new guidebooks took their place. Both these volumes became collector’s items due to their rarity, until now. An unprecedented snapshot of North America in the 1870s, Appleton’s Railway Guide is a must-have for any travel and railway enthusiast, historian, and fan of Americana.
