In 1830 the Liverpool & Manchester and the Canterbury & Whitstable Railways confirmed the marriage of the steam locomotive to the iron rail and opened the two first commercial railway lines. This volume Early British Steam, explores the development of railways in Great Britain from their lowly beginnings as powered transport for coal mines, through the fraught years of rapid growth, power struggles and duplication, into the golden years of luxury expresses and 'name' trains at the turn of the century. The effects of World War I are remembered and recorded. Profusely illustrated throughout, Early British Steam is a must for the library of every railway enthusiast.
