About This Item: 
A lot has happened in the world of railroads since the first train station opened in Darlington, England almost 200 years ago. Today's railroad station buildings are as wonderfully diverse as their locations, ranging from what G. K. Chesterton called "cathedrals of the Industrial Revolution" springing up along high-speed rail lines, to charming country stops that rarely see a passenger. On this fascinating journey to nearly 80 train stations, you'll learn about the use of rail transit on each continent and the story of each station. You'll become absorbed in the contemporary color photographs that make these train stations worth a second look. Stunning aerial views have great appeal because they signal the prospect of escaping from everyday life. A perfect book for armchair travelers!
