Description
Britain's national railway system remains in many ways the archetypal creation of the Victorian age. It transformed the entire social, economic, and intellectual fabric of Britain; influenced Victorian thought and language; figured prominently in the literature and art of the era; transformed communications; and far expanded the horizons of ordinary folk. Originally published in 1991, this illustrated chronicle by rail historian Jack Simmons considers every aspect of the railway, including its origins and initial construction, its boon for engineers and financiers, and its effects on leisure and the environment.
