The Illustrated History of British Steam Railways: The Legacy of the Steam Locomotive

£12.99

Product description

This book is a showcase of all that steam railways have achieved; from the basic design of Richard Trevithick's engine in 1804 to Stephenson's groundbreaking Rocket in 1829, the opening of the Liverpool-Manchester line in 1830 and the golden era of train travel in the early 20th century. Hundreds of colour and black-and-white photographs, maps and artworks, beautifully illustrate all facets of steam railways - from engines to signal boxes, platforms and signs. The development of new towns, the design of special locomotives, the use of the railways system by royalty and the part the railway played in World War I and II are covered in depth. There are also informative boxed features that profile famous designers, including Daniel Gooch, John Ramsbottom and Sir William Stanier, and railway companies, such as the Great Eastern, Caledonian and Taff Vale.
