The World’s 12 Most Amazing Rail Journeys

David Pettitt

It’s easy to take our local train services for granted, yet rail travel has historically been connected with ideas of adventure and destiny. Hurtling along at 100 km/hr with cinematic scenes unfolding whilst safe in your seat, travelling by train can be a truly exciting venture.


The glamour may be lost on the 8:05am to Peckham, but the variety of rail adventures to be had around the world is truly inspiring. From luxurious kangaroo fillet and boutique beer on the two-day Adelaide-Darwin run, to cruising to the Himalayas on India’s gritty Kalka-Shimla ‘toy train’. There’s something to please both the thrill-seeker and the traveller of leisure.


To find the one that’s tailor-made for you, check out our new infographic featuring some of the most spectacular rail trips in the world, and release your own wanderlust.
