Escaping the rat race for a few happy weeks, Tom Chesshyre indulges in the freedom of the tracks. From France (dogged by rail worker strikes) through Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland he goes, travelling as far east as Odessa by the Black Sea in Ukraine.
With no set plans, simply a desire to let the trains lead the way, his trip takes him onwards via Hungary, the Balkans and Austria. Along the way he enjoys many an encounter, befriending fellow travellers as well as a conductor or two. This is a love letter to Europe, written from the trackside.

This is a brilliant audiobook, very well read. The book itself imparts many interesting facts and is very well written.Highly recommended.
No Paul Theroux
this book should have been called snowflake on the line
was hoping for a smooth entertaining ride with no signal problems what I got was hours of off the track virtual signalling and pro mass migration rhetoric.
this book is also factually wrong in places, Gallipoli World War II?
