USA by Rail

British author John Pitt has travelled over 80,000 miles by train throughout the US and Canada in order to research and write his USA by Rail guide book. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it.

If you would like to share your own experiences of North American rail travel, make suggestions for the next edition of the book or contribute to this website, please contact USA by Rail. John would be delighted to hear from you.
