Beginning in the 18th century with horse-drawn carts on wooden rails, this comprehensive, well-illustrated history of Scottish railways goes on to examine the first steam locomotives, the growth of the rail network and the Edwardian 'Golden Age of Steam'. It also gives detailed accounts of locomotive development, post-war nationalization and privatization in the 1990s, and includes a chapter on the museums entrusted with preserving Scotland's railway heritage.
