He specialises in rail holidays, with over 14 years of experience in arranging such trips for people including short hops in Europe and long trips around the world. He has visited North America three times, including the east coast, the Deep South and Alaska. James experienced the iconic Rocky Mountaineer train, travelling through Canada’s most spectacular landscape. He has also travelled in Europe by rail, as well as two very different train experiences whilst in China and India.
