19th Century Railway Station

Fiona MacDonald (Author) and John James (Illustrator)

An illustrated look at the development of the railway station during the industrial revolution and beyond. Features detailed cutaway illustrations of some of the most famous railway stations in the world and descriptions of how these surviving stations are used today. Includes glossary and index.

Step inside one of the marvels of the Victorian age! In the middle of the 19th century, steam railways were the very latest transport technology: fast, comfortable (if you could afford a first-class ticket), safe and reliable. Learn about this triumph of engineering and about the army of workers who laboured long hours to keep it going. A 19th Century Railway Station is an exciting and superbly-illustrated look at developing transport during one of the most important periods of modern history. Illustrations of artifacts and paintings from the era help to support the main text by providing proof which explains how we know what we know. Informative captions, maps, a complete glossary and an index make these titles ideal educational texts. Each one features a sturdy flexi-bound cover with gold foiling.
