    The coming of the railways opened up new opportunities for the remote and rural county of Suffolk in the 19th century, transporting produce further afield, building the fortunes of the port of Felixstowe and bringing Londoners to coastal towns such as Southwold and Aldeburgh. This accessible history recalls the days of steam in the county from the building of the railways to its decline in the 1950s and the preservation movement thereafter.
