Details

The arrival of the railways in the 19th century changed Britain, physically, socially and economically. This study examines its effects, from the countryside where great viaducts transformed the valleys, to the rapidly expanding cities, while whole new towns such as Crewe came into being. Illustrated with modern and period photographs, the book concludes with a case study of one particular railway, the London & Birmingham, over 170 years.
