Railways – Past Present & Future

Author G. Freeman Allan

Excellent history of railways from the earliest Puffing Billies to the futuristic bullet trains. Written by G. Freeman Allen, a noted railway author, the book is an excellent general reference work and describes the development of early steam engines, the transportation revolution they sparked, the spread of railway systems around the world, the development of passenger service, technical improvements in signalling and braking, electric railways, inter-city rail, competition from cars and trucks, the diesel age and recent developments in train design and power. Illustrated throughout with a mix of black and white and colour photos and illustrations.

Very good used condition.
The pages are clean and not soiled or stained. Corners are sharp. The book is free of any page markings and smells good.

A great Christmas gift for the enthusiast. Check out the other train books I am selling.
