The Royal Orient train in India visits royal cities around the country.It is a voyage back in time with a thrilling assortment of serene lakes, ancient temples, a beautiful sea resort and exotic wild life. Another truly great railway journey
In Australia they have The Ghan train which travels from Darwin via Alice Springs to Adelaide. One of the truly great railway journeys through the dry Australian continent.
Finally, Russia's Trans-Siberian Railway is another mighty railway journey, six thousand miles long, & taking seven days. A good one for the adventurous although we do not recommend it in the winter.
Let us not forget the first Railway journey between Stockton-on-Tees & Darlington in 1825. These early passenger trains had a man with a red flag walking in front of the train warning of the danger! Things have developed somewhat since then with the Tokyo -Kyoto Bullet traveling at 300 km per hour !
So whether you choose a vintage steam train or the Bullet you can enjoy the experience of great railway journeys for your next vacation.
