To our Victorian ancestors, steam trains were the everyday means of travel. Then our grandparents and parents gradually found newer forms of transport more convenient, and turned to buses, cars, aeroplanes, electric trains and diesel trains instead. Steam locomotives were withdrawn and many railways closed.
Some people regretted the disappearance of steam trains and set about preserving what they could. The sights and sounds of steam locomotives, which might have disappeared altogether, are now again familiar in preservation.
There are in the British Isles about forty preserved operating steam railways, and about the same number of railway museums and steam depots. There are, too, innumerable hooks about particular railways, locomotives and other aspects of the subject; there are several general guides to railway preservation throughout the British Isles; but there are almost no straightforward introductions to the subject. Here is one.
