A lot has happened in the world of railroads since the first train station opened in Darlington, northern 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 on five continents, you'll learn about the use of rail transit on each continent and the story of each station. Contemporary color photographs are an invitation to become absorbed in the details that make train stations worth a good look. Many provide stunning aerial views, showing a perspective not available to passengers. Monumental or modest, these transportation hubs have great appeal because they signal the prospect of escaping from everyday life. Distant destinations are beckoning!
