Where to buy

The power and romance of the age of steam are captured in this vividly illustrated chronicle of the steam trains and railways that forged a new era in transportation from 1830 onward. From tiny spur lines to transcontinental systems bearing passengers and goods on highways of steel, historian John Westwood charts the progress, trials and legends of an epoch that still resonates throughout the world in our enduring fascination with railway history, architecture, preservation and folklore.
