Summary
"A highly illustrated volume tracing the emergence of modern railways. In this book, [the author] compiles archival maps and illustrations, many never before published, showing the locations and routes of the world's early railways, as well as the locomotive and rail technology that was key to the development of those railroads. In addition to maps, the illustrations include photos of most of the surviving first locomotives from collections around the world and of replicas too, where they exist"--Amazon.com
