The fifth edition of the Tourist Trains Guidebook follows the same successful, user-friendly format as its predecessor. It thoroughly describes at least 500 excursion trains and railroad museums throughout the United States and Canada. About 200 of the most popular sites are presented in full-page reviews written by a Trains magazine editor or correspondent. Reviewers offer advice on what to see, when to go, and how to get there. The remaining listings highlight smaller yet interesting train rides, museums, and depots that provide family fun or a unique piece of railroad history. Sites featured also include general directions, when to go, activities worth doing, and websites to give the reader the most user-friendly resource.
