Ever since the first passenger-carrying railway was opened at Oystermouth in Great Britain in 1807, the railways have played a unique role in world history. They have been powerful evidence of man’s pioneering spirit, which provide us still with unique ways to travel far and wide. The great engines which thundered along the railway tracks of the world were often beautiful and majestic things and the railways themselves were sometimes powerful reflections of the times.

Whether they’ve been at the cutting edge of progress or at the heart of conflict and war, the railways of the world have always been surrounded by astonishing stories and dramatic episodes which feature many remarkable people. From the train pioneers of the American west or the Australian outback, through their use in Hitler’s Reich, to the Golden Age of steam, the railways are a perfect blend of scientific innovation, engineering expertise and compelling history.
