Review:

Rogers E. M. Whitaker was a longtime reporter for the New Yorker, specializing in "Talk of the Town" pieces. He was also an expert on railroads, and spent most of his non-working time riding trains. Eventually he began contributing pieces about his rail journeys to the magazine, under the pseudonym "E. M. Frimbo." For decades his diligent reporting and sparkling prose glorified trains and destinations. In this collection, assembled by Whitaker's New Yorker colleague Tony Hiss, the reader is taken on rail trips throughout the United States as well as on excursions through Switzerland, Wales, and Siberia.
