Classic railway holidays

You think you know all the classic railway journeys, and then some politician or celebrity gets that jammy gig of bringing another one to light. We normal travellers are also able to go in search of these far from normal rail odysseys however. Such as the classic Vietnam Reunification Express, or the Rocky Mountaineer train. This is what great travel is all about for so many of us. But there are so many classics really, from Scotland to Siberia. We don't do the Polar Express, sorry, but we do go to Alaska.
