These posters epitomize the romance and luxury of train travel. Whether a fan of trains, travel, or vintage art advertising, Travel by Train will capture your fancy.

Here's a book that will make you want to take to the rails! They really don't make travel ads like they used to. These posters make traveling by train seem as much an adventure as the destination itself. It's wonderful to see the names of the artists next to their work. Something about the lush colors and unique style of the artwork makes the locations seem even more enticing than photographs. I wish we had a more extensive train network in this country.
