Review

A passionate and masterly history -- James McConnachie * Sunday Times * Christian Wolmar is in love with railways. He writes constantly and passionately about them. He is their wisest, most detailed historian... Wolmar doesn't have to invent the romance of the railways. That romance is clear on page after page of wonderful storytelling... If you love the hum of wheels and of history, Christian Wolmar is your man -- Peter Preston * Observer *

Book Description
