First published by the Great Western Railway in its Boys of All Ages series, and reprinted here complete with its graphic 1930s cover art and original diagrams and photographs, this was the first book to explore the 'nitty gritty work' of the GWR's civil engineering department. It is arranged as 20 'talks' on topics including Brunel, the doomed broad gauge, and the building and maintenance of tracks, viaducts, bridges and tunnels.
