One of the greatest train marathons of the world, extending 1,851 miles across Australia from the sweltering tropics of Darwin through the blistering red desert of Alice Springs to Adelaide on the Southern Ocean.

By Monisha Rajesh, author of Around the World in 80 Trains. 1. the tokaido shinkansen. Tokyo to osaka, japan. Climbing for miles through the jungle, banana leaves flapping against the windows, the train comes within inches of villagers’ walls and gardens, so close you can make eye contact and wave.
