Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Amtrak has been much maligned by disgruntled passengers and politicians as providing poor service. But, how does Amtrak's service compare with trains overseas? Do we, indeed, have substandard rail service, or if a rigorous cost and service comparison were made, would it show that our services are on par with the world? In this book, the author compares Amtrak travel experiences with some of the best (and worst) rail travel ordeals overseas and makes a structured cost and service quality comparison with similar trains in other countries. Both high - speed and long - distance trains are included in these comparisons. The author has lived and worked extensively overseas as a railway consultant and has several books to his credit, including descriptions of his travels from Cape to Cairo, the Trans - Siberian Railway, rail travel in Japan and historical sketches of railway development in China.
