The Train Book Summary


The Train Book: The Definitive Visual History by DK

From the first steam trains to the high-speed bullet locomotives of today, this is a glorious celebration of the history of trains and railways.

Take a look around the engines of some of the most well-known locomotives in British history, such as the Rocket, the Mallard, and the Javelin, along with famous international trains such as India's Palace on Wheels and America's Thatcher Perkins. Trace the routes of the most important rail routes in history, from the continent-spanning Union-Pacific Railroad and Trans-Siberian Railway to the routes of iconic locomotives such as the Orient Express, the Blue Train, and the Eurostar. And discover the stories of the pioneers of train and track - including George and Robert Stephenson; Isambard Kingdom Brunel, creator of the Great Western Railway; and Fulgence Bienvenue, designer of the Paris Metro.

Rounded out by comprehensive photographic catalogues of the most important trains from each period, The Train Book is the perfect gift for any train enthusiast.
