How often have you heard that exciting warning? You hurry to catch your train. You rarely give a thought to the chain of improvements and events that have made it possible for you to enjoy the comforts and conveniences of the modern railroad station. But after reading this entertaining and fascinating book, you'll find yourself looking at the different kinds of railroad stations with far greater interest.
For, like railroading itself, the station grew and was developed - from the little one at Crown Street in Liverpool more than a hundred years ago to the magnificent structures all over the world today. And many are the interesting tales Mrs. Nathan and Mr. Baker have dug up about the men who built them and the history linked with them.
One of the stories tells of what happened to two young men who hoisted themselves to -a chimney on the day the Duke of Wellington attended the opening of the Liverpool & Manchester Railway. Another highlights an amusing episode in the life of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, engineering genius whose ideas were far ahead of his time. There is a story concerning a chief engineer for the New York Central. too-and of how a brainstorm on his part not only solved a difficult problem but also made New York's midtown area a "city over a station."
Whether the next railroad station you enter is a "stub," "through" or "loop" station, you'll examine it carefully with greater understanding and a much keener eye, thanks to this fine book !
