We're not sure anyone has ever published a book list that includes both Anna Karenina and The Little Engine That Could -- so this might be a first! Find all our recommended tales of travel by train.

Who needs destinations? This summer, we're focusing on the journey. All these books — some old, some new — will transport you: by train, plane, car, bike, boat, foot, city transit, horse, balloon, rocket ship, time machine and even the odd giant peach. Bon voyage! (Taxes and fees not included).
