The First Railways

£12.99

The coming of the railway changed the world, but did not begin, as is often claimed, with the opening of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway in 1830; there were many earlier attempts to put waggons on rails. Illustrated with more than 400 photographs of locomotives, carriages and old track beds, and many early maps – some never published before – this book charts the rapid early development of the technology, and its transformation with the arrival of steam.
