Ffestiniog Travel has launched its new Rail Holidays of the World 2012 brochure, offering a selection of worldwide escorted and tailor-made train journeys. The new brochure divides the range of rail tours into three collections - Grand Rail Tours for those looking to explore the world by rail and experience a mix of culture, leisure, like-minded company and comfortable accommodation; Connoisseur Rail Tours that appeal to those with a specific passion for railways within the framework of a refined and relaxing holiday; and Signature Rail Tours, offering the flexibility to travel anytime and anywhere in the world. Trips can be tailor-made for couples or groups who have a specific rail itinerary in mind.

New highlights for 2012 include an 18-day USA Canyons & Railways itinerary (as part of the Grand Rail Tours collection), which takes in canyons, valleys, deserts and National Parks, with San Francisco, Yosemite and the Bryce and Grand Canyons some of the highlights. Prices lead in at £3,835 per person for a September 6 departure.

From the Connoisseur Rail Tours collection, a ten-day Best of Benelux tour is rich in memorable rail interest, featuring steam, heritage and well-known scenic lines and takes in Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg. Prices cost from £1,435 per person for a September 7 departure.

All tours are escorted and include return air or rail travel as appropriate, train travel for the duration of the trip, accommodation with breakfast (based on two sharing), some meals and excursions depending on itinerary and a tour leader.
