Synopsis: Perfect for train enthusiasts, this miscellany is full of interesting facts and anecdotes about the history of railways across the world
Cherished, admired, and frequently used as an excuse for lateness, the railways occupy a special place in our hearts. Trains are not just a practical mode of transport, but also a way of tracing our social history over the past 150 years, from technological progress and design to cultural change and the impact they have had on our landscape. Full of facts, trivia, and anecdotes, this engaging miscellany looks at the heyday of the railways around the world, chronicling the shift from steam trains to diesel and electric and the challenge of running during two World Wars. A broad range of aspects is covered, from the types of trains and services, key people and station architecture, to station pets, accidents and crime, and the depiction of the railways in literature and art. Chock-full of information, and illustrated with line drawings throughout, this miscellany is perfect for railway enthusiasts, history buffs, or those who would like to learn more about this fascinating form of transport that is so often taken for granted.
About the Author: Peter Saxton is a former bookseller who spent twelve years working for British Rail, including a stint at the International Office at Victoria.
