In this special boxed set, two illustrated volumes offer a world encyclopedia of locomotives and a fascinating tour of the most celebrated railway journeys of the world. The history of locomotive development is described in


detail, from the very beginnings of locomotive design, to the development of steam power, and the transition from steam to diesel and electric power. Over 95 superb railway journeys are vivdly evoked,


from journeys steeped in history such as Stephenson’s 27km line from Bedford to Bletchley, to the trans- continental lines in Canada, and the luxury of the “Palace on Wheels” in Rajasthan.
