Description
 
John Westwood (au). Many of the worlds older railways are now over 150 years old, yet many of the original routes & structures survive. For the most part, however, the present-day railroads bear little resemblance to the pioneer lines. This book demonstrates in text & pictures the great changes that have taken place. Beginning with the first steam trains, this volume documents the rise of rail from a promising invention to a universal feature of daily life. It shows the years of expansion leading up to WW1, which lead to a period of unprecedented speed, convenience, & luxury, as well as the post war years when competition arrived from other forms of transport. Also looks at the new sleek high-speed trains that have revolutionized the railways. Photos!
