Part of the "Eyewitness Guides" series, this book is illustrated with specially commissioned photo-collections, many of them from York's National Railway Museum, taking the reader from the earliest developments, through the era of steam and the building of continental rail systems, to diesel, and the driverless hi-tech trains of today. The reader can see how the first tracks evolved from solid oak construction to ones capable of taking tilting trains. Find out what signals mean, take a peek inside a stately royal train, and learn about the famous railway engineers and the record breakers such as the Mallard and the TGV. Other published titles in the series include "Bird", "Rock & Mineral", "Skeleton", "Arms & Armour", "Tree", "Pond & River", "Butterfly & Moth", "Sport", "Shell", "Early People", "Mammal", "Music", "Dinosaur", "Plant", "Seashore", "Flag", "Insect", "Money", "Fossil", "Fish", "Car", "Flying Machine", "Ancient Egypt", "Ancient Rome", "Gem & Crystal", "Reptile", "Invention", "Weather", "Cat", "Bible Lands", "Explorer", "Dog", "Horse", "Cinema", "Costume" and "Boat".
