DESCRIPTION
From the development of Britain's railways in 1603 through to the present day, this book is endlessly fascinating. Drawing on a lifetime of railway research, Julian Holland offers a first-class commentary complete with photographs and archive material.

Showing how Britain has claimed many achievements including the first steam railway locomotive, the first inter-city railway and the world speed record for steam in 1938 (126mph, in case you were wondering).

The book also looks at trains' and railways' effect on the Great Victorian Age and the early 20th century before its nationalisation and modernisation from 1948 onwards. It also covers the Beeching Report in detail and the privatisation of the high-speed railways in the 1990s.
