From the earliest known map that shows a wagon-way in 1637, this atlas uses contemporary cartography, mostly from previously unpublished maps, along with illustrations of trackbeds, locomotives and rolling stock, to trace the technological development of railways in Britain. Beginning with primitive wooden rails used in mines and quarries, the book describes progress up to the first modern, steam-powered railways in the early 19th century, and ends by surveying the transfer of the technology to other countries.
