About The Book

History is everywhere, and is never as complete as when it can be accessed ona part of history itself. The locomotive is one of the great steps in progress ofcivilisation that undoubtably connects us to land and history that was shaped by themachine itself. Although a basic form of railway, or rutway, did exist in Ancient Greekand Roman times - notably the ship trackway between Diolkos and the Isthmus ofCorinth around 600 BC - it would take several thousand years before the firstfare-paying passenger service was launched in the early nineteenth century. Sometwo hundred years on, it is possible to travel by train to some of the world's mostremote and remarkable destinations, and track the many wonderful legacies of theEarth's extensive history - man-made and otherwise.
