Description : What makes a great railway journey? Some will say the distance, or the countryside, or the scenery, while others will be fascinated by the locomotive that pulls the train or the people they meet on the way. All these factors and more have a part to play in the journeys described in this book, which range from the 16-km journey from Leicester to Loughborough that set Thomas Cook on his career, to the journey of the Red Arrow, which travels halfway around the world from Brussels to Hong Kong.

Description : The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Scotland is a comprehensive, illustrated reference guide to Scotland. It presents an overview of the country in a wide perspective: its varied landscapes, towns and their buildings, its past and present, and above all its people, their occupations and pastimes. This encyclopedia also provides an illustrated portrait of Scotland now and in the past, covering history, the arts, industry, science, commerce, medicine, sport, politics, religion, architecture and popular culture. The aim of this encyclopedia is to give a wide range of information in an accessible form. Many topics are given extended entries, such as the main cities, the clans, the Enlightenment, language, the law, parliament, golf and whisky. Entries are cross-referenced, and each topic has been researched and reviewed by experts in their field. For additional information there is a list of further reading, lists of Scottish festivals and societies, and maps indicating the changes to local government boundaries both in 1975 and in 1996.
