Product description

The opening of the Stockton & Darlington and Liverpool and Manchester railways in 1825 and 1830 respectively heralded the beginning of the modern railway age in Britain. Both lines combined its essential features in providing specialised track, mechanised traction and facilities for public traffic and passengers. In the next fifty years the railway industry was established in a series of promotion manias.

Integrated within the book is a discussion of the work of many leading historians of the railways, so providing an invaluable guide to the subject for all students of the history of nineteenth-century Britain.

Book in very good condition.
