Born out of the Industrial Revolution, the railway locomotive may be seen as Britain's greatest gift to the world. It allowed continents to be opened up, new trade routes to be established and people to make journeys in a few hours that previously had taken several days. The single invention redrew the map of the globe and paved the way for the modern world, with the automobile and aeroplane following it its wake. Through more than 60 colour images, this conveniently pocket-sized book looks not only at Britain's rich heritage of locomotives that have survived from the dawn of steam, but the many replicas made in modern times to 'fill in' the historical gaps, and where to see them today. It is the first volume to bring them all together under one cover.
