    TODO full review: Insight Guides Great railway Journeys of Europe is exactly what Europe by Eurail 2019 is not: a great guide to the amazing railway journeys of Europe - - which journey one can make, by region, what would one see during such a journey, and some emotional and visual tours of these journeys. +++ Excellent maps, covering both the geopolitical and the railway layout. The maps are delightfully colorful, meticulously drawn, and carefully annotated. +++ Excellent history of the railway, TODO full review: Insight Guides Great railway Journeys of Europe is exactly what Europe by Eurail 2019 is not: a great guide to the amazing railway journeys of Europe - - which journey one can make, by region, what would one see during such a journey, and some emotional and visual tours of these journeys. +++ Excellent maps, covering both the geopolitical and the railway layout. The maps are delightfully colorful, meticulously drawn, and carefully annotated. +++ Excellent history of the railway, resplendent with crowning technological achievements, glaring political mistakes, and lasting economic decisions. The part on performance captures well the trade-off speed-safety, and how economic interests affect it. The influence of railways on the emerging industry of tourism and on the eternal preoccupation of war are both emphasized. ++ Good selection of railway paths and journeys. More could be added, but I could not fault any of the selected and the authors go to great lengths to explain that theirs can only be a subjective selection. It's a Top-100 that one can agree with, without getting pedantic about the 101st possible entry. ++ Plenty of practical advice, similar but more reduced in scope to what appears in Europe by Eurail 2019. ++ The guide includes material likely written by experts with local knowledge. For example, I found myself down the memory lane, while reading about the Mocănița narrow-gauge specialty trains of Romania, about Sighișoara the fortified medieval town, and about Feldioara and the Bran Castle (which the guide correctly presents as "tenuously associated with Vlad the Impaler", Loc. 1180). These are all hidden gems and it's likely the guide includes many more. Good stuff!

    A highly informative and indispensable guide to European rail travel. It includes fascinating history about the development of railways, notable European rail journeys, individual country journeys and a brief overview of each country with information such as currencies, useful contacts, visa information and a lot more. Extremely useful for anyone wishing to explore Europe by rail.
