Fascinating look at the development of train travel in the 19th century, especially the stress it placed on individuals and communities. Chapters cover the development of standard railroad time, the birth of iron and glass stations that served as communal temples to industry and gateways to the city, the fear of strangers as traveling companions, traveling on vacation for the scenery, accidents, the growth of traveler's insurance, lawsuits over mental injuries and the revival of the concept of shock to deal with them. Illustrated throughout. With extensive footnotes. 213 pages.
