Description
Covering the history of railways in Britain and around the world from the early 19th century to the mid 1980s, this book tells the story of the 19th-century pioneers, the technical development of locomotives and rolling stock and the impact of the railways on Victorian society. It outlines the effect of the tremendous improvements in communications, cheaper travel for individuals and freight, and newspaper and postal deliveries. The final chapters examine the impact of nationalisation and modernisation, and consider the present and likely future of the railways. The text is generously illustrated with photographs, contemporary prints and engravings, maps and diagrams.
