Railways connect places and people. A train journey is a great way to get to know a country and its inhabitants. Our Railway Stories are set on legendary routes and lesser-known lines, in old rolling stock, luxury carriages, and high-speed trains. The stories from around the world present people for whom the railway can be many things: an employer, a means of transport, or a tourist attraction. The routes lead through landscapes that are of spectacular beauty and rich in history.
