The definitive visual history of the train and the railroads
This stunning book is a glorious celebration of all things train and track.
Packed with stunning photography, The Train Book catalogues the development of trains from early steam to diesel engines and electric locomotives, explores in detail iconic trains such as the Palace on Wheels and the Orient Express, and chronicles the social, political, and cultural backdrop against which railroads were built the world over.
Profiling the best loved railroads and rail journeys of all time—from the Union-Pacific Railroad to the Trans-Siberian Railroad—and the pioneers of train and track—from "Father of the Railways" George Stephenson to engineering legend Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Métro-maestro Fulgence Bienvenüe—The Train Book is perfect for anyone with an interest in trains, locomotives, and the history of the railroad.
