Often associated with nostalgia for bygone local services, the history of the train is in fact a story of global, nation-changing consequence and technological innovation that continues to this day. Supported by hundreds of colour 'cut-out' images, The Train Book charts the development of locomotive design from Trevithick's 1803 tram engine to modern metro systems and high speed trains; it profiles the railway pioneers and the most notable trains and, in a final section, explains how railways work.
