A fascinating journey through the history of railways, packed with first-hand accounts of innovation, triumph, and tragedy.

From the earliest steam engine to the high-speed bullet trains of today, A Short History of the Railway reveals the hidden stories of railway history across the world - the inspired engineering; the blood, sweat, and tears that went into the construction of the tracks; the ground-breaking innovations behind the trains that travelled along them; and the triumphs and tragedies of the people who made the railway what it is.

Chart the history of the Trans-Siberian railway, the Orient Express, and Maglev
trains and the impact of world events on the development of trains and the railway. Explore the pioneering railway lines that crossed continents, the key trains of
each era, and the locomotives that changed the world. A riveting narrative packed with photographs, diagrams, and maps to illustrate and illuminate, this is the biography
of the machines that carried us into the modern era.
