Travelling by train is one of the best ways to cross great distances while being able to appreciate the landscapes and culture of the country you're visiting. But some rail journeys are great destinations in themselves, due to their cultural and historical importance or for the chance to see spectacular landscapes along tracks that are engineering wonders.

We have divided these Rail Journeys into three categories:

Classic - the most famous and popular destinations and must-see travel experiences.
Alternative - something a bit different and off the beaten track, but no less spectacular.
Beyond - the true frontiers of travel, extraordinary destinations in some of the least visited regions on earth.
