Book Description Times, 2015. Book Condition: New. The first recorded 'wagonway', running coal carts along wooden rails in Nottinghamshire, predates Stephenson's Rocket by over 200 years and there was even a horse-drawn passenger railway in Surrey before steam power transformed everything. Well illustrated with archive photographs, illustrations, posters and ephemera, this book tells the whole story of Britain's railways: the innovators and pioneers; the record-breaking locomotives and grand engineering projects; the corporate organization, reorganization and nationalization; the cuts and closures; and the revival in recent decades.
