Most Helpful Customer Reviews

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. R. Trtek on February 21, 2014
Format: Paperback
This is yet another small and slender book from Shire Publications providing an introduction to a cultural or historical topic, in this case railway travel during Victorian and Edwardian times. At 6x8 inches and 56 pages including index, one can't expect an exhaustive treatment, but this volume gives an adequate first look at the subject. The book's chapters outline, in order, the railway station, the trains themselves, life aboard a carriage, dangers of travel, and social history of rail travel for commuting to work and as a leisure activity. The author's text is straightforward and illuminating, and several illustrations add bits of engaging information. Again, don't come here for an in-depth examination, but to get the gist of what it was like to ride the rails in the 19th Century, this book gets the job done, and done well.
