Description: Rob Higgins shows how taking the aerial route gives unique insights into the history and workings of Britain's railways. The marvels of Victorian engineering in their construction, their relationships to the canals they replaced as the main arteries of transport, and the communities and industry they spawned along their length can all be seen in detail. This book flies from the Scottish Highlands to Cornwall; from marshalling yards in the centre of the UK to lines hugging cliffs and beaches. All the viaducts on the 'top' section of the Settle & Carlisle line are featured, together with many other viaducts and bridges, including the swing bridges in the Norfolk Broads. Lineside industries are seen, from a huge malting complex in East Anglia to our fast-disappearing coal-powered power stations.

    Description: The strategic importance of railways was recognized almost from the beginning of their development, but it was not until the end of the nineteenth century that their real value was appreciated by the military. In both the First and Second World Wars, railways were crucial in the transportation of men, munitions and coal, whilst on the Continent British forces operated railways to support the war effort. The heroic story of railways at war was confirmed in the months before and after the 'D' Day landings in 1944 when thousands of trains were run to support the Allied invasion, cementing their role as the 'fourth service' during the Second World War. Here, Tim Bryan provides an authoritative and fully illustrated guide to the railway's role in Britain's war efforts. Waterstones Railways in Wartime - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk

  • Waterstones The Early Pioneers of Steam

    Price: £16.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: We think of the Stephensons and Brunel as the fathers of the railways, and their Liverpool and Manchester and Great Western Railways as the prototypes of the modern systems. But who were the railways' grandfathers and great-grandfathers? The rapid evolution of the railways after 1830 depended on the juggernauts of steam locomotion being able to draw upon centuries of experience in using and developing railways, and of harnessing the power of steam. Giants the Stephensons and others may have been, but they stood upon the foundations built by many other considerable - if lesser-known - talents. This is the story of those early pioneers of steam.

  • Waterstones Railways of Wales in the 1960s

    Price: £14.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: The beauty of its mountain and coastal scenery has always made the railways of North Wales special. During the 1960s, as fast as steam was fading on the main lines, it was flourishing on the narrow gauge railways, hinting at the great potential that was to come. Those fledgling railways that are today's major tourist attractions possessed a special, rudimentary charm as they came to terms with the challenges of gearing up for a new army of admirers. This book takes you on a tour in essays and colour pictures of all the narrow gauge railways then in operation and also the British Rail routes that were facing an uncertain future. John Evans brings his unique way with words and pictures to capture a scene that has in many ways changed dramatically . and meets some veteran locomotives that we can still enjoy today.

  • Waterstones Railways of East Shropshire Through Time

    Price: £15.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: The history of East Shropshire has had a global impact, with Ironbridge and Coalbrookdale acknowledged as the 'Cradle of the Industrial Revolution'. In this book, local industrial history expert Neil Clarke examines through photographs the history of the railways in this area, which both came from the Industrial Revolution and enabled its growth, through the rapid expansion of the nineteenth century and the Grouping and the Beeching Axe of the twentieth century to the present day. Everything, from the first wagonways (early railways) to individual branch lines of the area, is examined using both old photographs and drawings and modern photographs to show the development of railways in the area. This area of Shropshire has changed beyond all recognition, as the harsh lines of industry have been replaced with greenery, yet the remnants of its industrial past can still be seen, especially through its railways.
