Description
The birth of the railways and their rapid spread triggered economic growth and social change on an unprecedented scale. Here the author of The Subterranean Railway and Engines of War describes the vision and determination of the groundbreaking engineers who developed the early railway lines, linking cities that previously had been isolated and ultimately spanning whole continents. The rise of the train inspired daring feats of engineering, architectural innovation, and an unprecedented movement of people and goods around the world.

"Full of wondrous curiosities—this authoritative and highly readable book will remain the definitive history for years to come."—Daily Telegraph
